I learned about an amazing and rare opportunity to learn from a Master Quilter, Designer, Author, Teacher, Freemotion Quilting Expert and overall just an amazing person who is also an award winning quilter. It is rare to get a chance to take a class with this teacher, who is also the mother of a young child, thus she rarely travels to teach (but she does teach several excellent classes online). And, this rare opportunity is also on the West Coast, in late January 2019, which is a time that typically has good weather in Southern California, when a good part of the country is freezing. So, I’m hoping to inspire you to come take classes at Road 2 California Quilt Conference and Show 2019, as well as enjoy an amazing Quilt Show and Conference.
Road 2 CA has a great faculty of teachers for 2019, some of which that caught my attention are:
Rob Appell, Lisa H. Calle, Kimberly Einmo, Gundren Erla, Grace Errea, John Flynn, Laura Heine, Lynn Koolish, Linda Nitzen, Gina Perkes, Gina Reddin, Wendy Sheppard, David Taylor, Linda Taylor, Deb Tucker, and Annie Unrein, and more teachers too!
This amazing event will have attendees, as well as teachers, from all over the world, but only one amazing Wendy Sheppard!
Or maybe you know Wendy, thru her beautiful thread collections for Aurifil.
Many know Wendy from her online classes available on Annie’s Craft Store, where she has excellent classes for quilters of all levels.
She has been published in a vast amount of magazines, as well as designed quilts for major fabric manufacturers where you can often find a free pattern on their websites, for a design that shows off their new fabric lines.
Wendy also shares tips, tutorials and plenty of inspiration on her blog – Ivory Spring.
Did I mention Wendy will be teaching at Road 2 CA 2019? She has five classes at Road and machines will be available for each class (Husqvarna-Viking machines will be available for students in her Monday/Tuesday class. The rest of Wendy’s classes will feature half BERNINA Q20 sit down longarm machines and half BERNINA domestic machines. Students will split their time working on both machines.)
