Quilts at the Creek Quilt Shoppe - Calling all Vendors!
Do you have quilts or quilt-related items you’d like to sell at Quilts at the Creek? We will have tables for you in the covered vendor area where there will be buzz and activity from lots of buyers!
To be a vendor, you must have a quilt hanging in the show. There is no cost for tables however YHQG will charge 15% commission on sales.
If you would like to book a vendor’s table, please contact Shirley Dawson at 416.730.9680 or at email@example.com. A Sellers Quilt Shoppe Kit will be emailed to you and will include: sales sheets, sales tags, setup/takedown times and procedures for selling items in the Boutique.
Workshops at Quilts at the Creek!
Attention members! There are spaces still available in the following Jacquie Guering workshops at Quilts at the Creek:
Friday, August 15, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Scrappy Improvisation Workshop. This class will help you use all those scraps that are too big to throw away, but you’re not sure how to use. Learn this unique twist on improvisational piecing and discover and learn to use the concept of “inflow” to manipulate the negative space in your quilt. The class also includes instruction on paneling your blocks to create a unique layout for your quilt.
Saturday, August 16, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Slice and Insert Workshop. Learn the basic technique and a new adaptation, a foolproof strategy for matching inserts, simple techniques for adding complexity to a design as well as how to work with even width and wedge shaped inserts. Combine simple sewing with a new skill and create your own linear design.
The cost for each day is $90, which includes entrance to Black Creek and parking.
To register for these workshops please contact Sandy Lindal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
