During lockdown our usual round of Guild events and those with our local sewing groups were put on hold. Now our thoughts are moving towards autumn when we would usually be contemplating regional days and workshops. Despite the easing of restrictions not all meeting places have re-opened. Many of us are reluctant to venture out to a live event and so online or video conferencing options are being considered as a possible solution.
We have already seen some successful events in the regions so we are keen to ensure that regions and quilting groups can easily access information about those who are able to offer talks and workshops at a distance. If you are an established speaker or tutor and a member of the Guild there are two things you can do to publicise your offering. You can update your member profile and you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and your details will be added to an easily accessible page on the Guild website. We will also keep a list in the files on our Facebook page and on qgbi the members’ group. If you are looking for an online speaker or workshop tutor then this will be the perfect place to start. Look out for an update and a link to the page shortly. It will be accessible to everyone but at the moment only members may have a listing.
Obviously we cannot endorse the various talks and workshops for quality and content but we are very enthusiastic about helping tutors and quilters get together in this safe and inclusive manner. The success of the venture depends on accurate and current information - your email address and a brief description would be perfect.
