NC Quilt Symposium 2010 Registration is open!

North Carolina has an annual symposium where quilters from across NC congregate to take classes, listen to lectures, join in on all sorts of quilt related fun, shop at the vendors, and visit the quilt show which always includes amazing quilts. It is always fun; it is always inspirational. 

The Symposium moves around the state as quilt guilds across the state take turns hosting this annual event.  The 2010  Symposium will be held in Charlotte, NC this year and I am so excited about it.  Classes and accomodations will be at Johnson and Wales University in Uptown.  Most will choose to stay in the dorms at the University and it turns out to be a lot like a grown up sleepover/pajama party. If that’s not for you, there is a hotel across the street where you can make your reservations to stay and still be close to all the classes.  And if you live locally, you can choose to be a day student and only come for the classes, but I encourage you to stay over with us even if you just live a few miles away. It’s just too much fun!

It’s going to be so nice to have it so close this year. Registration began Friday,  please  check out the teachers and activities and put your registration in the mail to join us.  I’m excited and I can’t wait!  I keep reviewing the list of classes and teachers available and I’m having a hard time choosing which ones I want.  There are classes for everyone from beginner to advanced quilters, from very traditional to “out there” art, and from hand work to dyeing to thread painting and bobbin work.  Here is the list of teachers coming this year:

Charlotte Angotti
Cynthia Corbin
Melody Crust
Patti Culea
Kim Diehl
Karen Eckmeier
Ellen Anne Eddy
Robbi Joy Eklow
Flavin Glover
Bonnie Hunter
Janet Lasher
Susan Purney Mark
Velda Newman
Jenny Raymond
Paula Scaffidi
Pat Sloan
Karen Stone
Carol Taylor
David Taylor
Laura Wasilowski
Elin Waterson
Terry White

You can check it all out at the website    I hope you’ll decide to come join us!

And finally, the donation quilt made by the Charlotte Quilt Guild in Charlotte, NC was designed by Susan Brubaker Knapp, a good friend of mine. Isn’t it beautiful????  The pattern will be available for purchase at Symposium with all proceeds benefiting the Symposum fund. It is called “Nothing Could Be Finer.”
