Workshop Guidelines for 2018
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:
Please contact Shannan Maggied or Cecily-Sue Roth as soon as you know you cannot attend a Workshop you have signed up and paid for.
