MICHIGAN BASED SPEAKERS / LECTURES / TRUNKSHOWS

Michigan :            (** Last time at guild if known...)

 
davisoneveningstarquiltguild@gmail.com
 

 

 

Some speakers limit how far they are willing to drive due to family and work considerations.

Many older quilters do not have a web page.  I obtain verbal permission to post contact information.  Those quilters with web pages I copy and paste contact information from their web page.

Many speakers have EMAIL CONTACT FORMS on their web page to limit spam, and robo- contacts .  They want only legitimate contact.  This may be  only way you can contact the speaker.  Check the CONTACT / ABOUT pages on the web sites. 

CHECK the LINKS pages on the web page of the speaker.  They often provide contact to friends and fellow speakers they admire and are a good source of  information. 

Sometimes the only way to contact a speaker is to PRIVATE MESSAGE them on their face book space.

Last resort contact the guilds they have given  lectures at for contact information.  YOU can also talk to guild member/ coordinator about their experience with the speaker.

  Pat Anchatz from Hillman, Michigan          .......         June 2017
989-742-4558
Pam and her husband Steve came to our guild to show her quilts and talk about her journey in quilting.   Pam is an avid hand quilter and has hand pieced many of the quilts she showed last night.  She use to do the hand piecing while traveling in the car or waiting for kids at sporting events.  Sewing is something she does everyday, usually instead of watching TV or other activities.   She said she has been quilting for over 40 years.  She only brought a portion of her quilts and I took over 60 pictures of the quilts she brought.  Pam had lots of stories and gave a wonderful and interesting lecture.

Her husband Steve is supportive of her quilting endeavors and has made some small quilts.  He is the Chaplin for his volunteer fire station and has made banners and donation quilts. 

A family gift

PAM loves BOMs and has made many of them

PAM's Round Robin

Pam believes in supporting the efforts of her local quilting groups so she has made many of the quilts they have organized as group efforts.  She has blocks of the months, round robins, mystery quilts, samplers and block swap quilts. Many of the quilts were hand pieced and hand quilted.  Our guild members were impressed with her presentation.



BETSY KOSS from BOYNE CITY          ....April 2017

Betsy has worked on salvaging old quilts,  antique quilt tops and abandon antique orphan blocks.   She came to our guild and gave us a wonderful trunk show and workshop.   I highly recommend her as a speaker.  Check the blog post below to read more about our event.

LAURA PATTERSON from BAY CITY, MI

  MARCH 2017

Laura spent the evening at Evening Stars Quilt Guild on  March 29th... She treated us to a fascinating trunk show of her quilts.  She spoke to us about the techniques she used to achieve her award winning quilts.   She had her quilt walked around the hall letting us touch the quilts and investigate her wonderful workmanship.   She does not have her own web page but I will post links to the blog posts on our web page and others I found on the internet. 

 Contact her via her email :  grubershouse@aol.com

You need to see Boro , centuries old rag/scraps technique. " Make do or do without " related to depression days.
I'll be giving demos & lectures at groups.
The technique looks like fun. I have been inserting colorful scraps, denim, synthetic.

Layering scraps then BIG stitch with long Sashiko needle & #8 Pearl. Silk scraps for filling & resale large pieces of Real silk or synthetic light weight weight using Hand & machine.
I try to use Naturals like wool, bamboo or scraps of naturals

       And if a group of quilters would want a workshop-especially for a Quiltworx project-we could set something up without a formal presentation.

Friendship:  
We have been friends for several years and share a passion for quilting.  But our designs and techniques are totally opposite.  Linda likes to paper piece, machine piece and make bargellos.  Some of her paper piecing is very complex and uses thousands and thousands of pieces.  Leslie prefers to do hand needle turn applique, wool applique, red work and color tinting fabric.  Together, we bring sixty to ninety quilts to show, which should please everyone.

When I get desperate for speakers I start calling quilt shops in a 100 mile radius around my town.  Quilt shops often have teachers willing to come and give a workshop.  Eye Candy aka TRUNK SHOWS of all kind of quilts are often shown at the guild meeting.  The prices of the lectures and workshops tend to be less expensive but still of a high quality.
