If you missed the free Global Quilt Connection Teacher Sampler in March, there will be a second one on July 30 & 31.  These LIVE jam-packed exciting virtual events are a great way to get a taste of what a virtual workshop is like with some of the best teachers the virtual world has to offer!  Guild members will receive a Zoom invitation to come when they can, stay as long as they’d like, grab a cuppa and join the fun.   The videos will be available for 48 hours afterward.  In each of these live virtual events a different All-Star cast of 18 quilt teachers will demonstrate some of their favorite quilting techniques over two different days. It’s a showcase of a wide variety of styles and techniques, from traditional to modern and art quilting techniques with something to please everyone!

Here's a guide to connecting your phone, taplet or laptop to your TV.   You can watch Zoom comfortably or invite a friend or your Circle to join you.  Click HERE
