Book a Fun & Fascinating Program!  

"We had so much fun at your workshop and your lecture was fantastic.  I have to tell you...typically when the lecture is over most guild members take off and leave immediately.  The amount of folks that hung around to mingle with you and look at your books and quilts speaks volumes about your presentation.  Many of them either approached me that evening or sent an email the next day telling me how much they enjoyed your quilts, lecture and humor."--Mandi Percell, Program Chair for Quilters Unlimited, Arlington Virginia

Technical and Practical Guidelines:

All of my presentations include a trunk show, with quilts for touching. These are made by me, or in my collection of anique, vintage, and contemporary quilts. Please try to provide the following:

  • Table or two, for exhibiting trunk show items, plus books for show and sale
  • If the room is large, a microphone is helpful--but not absolutely necessary (I have a good, strong voice)

A few of my presentations include quilts too precious and priceless for my humble budget. In these cases, I have   35mm slides on a carousel, and usually bring my own slide projector. If you are interested in this presentation, try to supply the following:

  • Room that can be darkened
  • Audiovisual cart or table for my projector
  • Extension cord
  • Screen...or white wall, or pressed white fabric taped or pinned to a wall
  • Optional, but nice: podium or table I can put my notes on; a little light; a mike if the room and group are large (otherwise, I have a good, strong voice).

Guidelines for Fees:

Generally, I charge $300 per lecture/trunk show/presentation, plus transportation costs. If I need to stay overnight, I’m hoping you’ll make arrangements for non-smoking accommodations or home hospitality.

If your guild is small and the travel is minimal, if you are booking me for a workshop during the same visit, OR if you can help me coordinate other programs for a neighboring guild on the day before or the day after, I may be able to negotiate on my fee.
