Guild Program Information
Dear Quilt Guild Program Chairman,
Quilters Haven is the home of the
popular “Less Than Traditional”
Series of patterns, tools and notions seen in all the most popular quilting
magazines. This technique was designed by Charlene Bement “Charlie” over 40
years ago and is an ongoing series that is easy enough for a beginner yet
fun for Quilters and Seamstresses of all skill levels. We have been teaching
this quick and easy technique coast to coast for over 35 years and as a
guild program or workshop it is always a hit!
In our program we will
show your group the step by step basic technique that is the foundation for
all of the patterns in our series. We will also show lots of variations and
ideas to inspire your group as well as some of the most useful and popular
notions. The program lasts approximately 1 hour to 1 hour 15 mins.
Our terms are easy! We do not charge a fee
for the trunk show and lecture
instead we are compensated by
setting up our “traveling quilt shop” so at the end of the program your
group can shop for not only “Less Than Traditional” products but lots of
popular quilting notions as well!
Hands on workshops are also
available for a fee of $30 per person. We have a minimum payment requirement
of 10 people or $300.
We also provide door prizes for your meeting.
For every 10 members in attendance we will provide a door prize so if you
have 60 people in attendance that’s 6 great prizes! If your guild has a day
and night meeting we are happy to do both!Note:
For our set up we will need a total of 3 -8 foot
2 available to set up our quilt shop and 1 for the trunk show
as well as an area to set up our mobile tables.
In order to unloaded and set up in time for your members’ arrival we will
need access to your meeting location at least 1 hour
prior to the start time of your meeting social time.
rising gas prices it has become necessary for us to charge round trip
mileage at a rate of .56 per mile round trip. In addition,
locations far enough to require an overnight stay will require you to
provide hotel accommodations. (Determined on an individual basis. I am sorry
we do not stay in private homes but a cheap motel 6 type room is fine as
long as it’s in a safe area) For more information or to schedule a trunk
show or workshop please email us at
. Keep in mind we are often available on short
notice should you find yourself with a last minute program cancellation.
