Workshop Guidelines for 2024

LQG Workshops are educational and fun opportunities for small groups of quilters (generally between 15-25) to obtain valued instruction from guest Presenters and learn new patterns, techniques, shortcuts and design elements, as well as develop deeper threads of friendship with other Guild members. For your information, please refer to the following Workshop Guidelines:

1. Three or more months prior to the Workshop, signups will begin at the regular monthly meeting.
2. Two months prior to the Workshop, if it is not filled, signups will be offered to other guilds and the general public at an additional fee.
3. One month prior to the Workshop, if not filled, it will be cancelled and payments returned.
4. Only people who have signed up AND paid can attend the Workshop. You are not considered signed up until your payment is received.
5. When the Workshop is filled, a "Waiting List" sign-up sheet will be made available. If someone drops out, the next person on the Waiting List will be called. (If you need to cancel, please DO NOT find a replacement unless there is no one waiting.)
6. Once you have signed up for a Workshop and you find you are unable to attend, you WILL NOT receive a refund unless your spot is filled.

Please contact the Progam Chair as soon as you know you cannot attend a Workshop you have signed up and paid for. If applicable, they will contact the next person on the waiting list. If there is no one on the waiting list, you may find your own replacement and give the Program VP your replacement's name and contact information.
