This may be your final chance to attend a Quilt Restoration workshop taught by Nancy Kirk, one of the greats in the quilt restoration field...and getting ready to retire. Yours truly will be co-teaching.
The workshops are in Omaha, NE:
Beginning quilt restoration Sept. 23-24
Advanced quilt restoration Sept. 26-27
with a field trip to the International Quilt Study Center (always worth a visit!) Sept. 25.
Fees are extremely reasonable, and you'll come away from this with a remarkable set of skills for repairing and restoring not only your own quilts -- but with a start toward doing it as a business -- something that's desperately needed in many areas. Promise.
Two half-scholarships are mentioned on the website as still available, too...
Find out more at the Quilt Restoration site. Or ask if you've got a question.
