We're excited for all of you who have already signed up for next year's workshops and the winter retreat. Some classes are full and have a wait list - those are indicated below. Contact Linda Click if you want to be placed on a wait list. We've got a great year planned and are grateful for your participation!
Please make sure you have renewed your guild membership dues before registering for classes. The membership form can be found on the HAAQG web site with Pam Riss's contact information for mailing your form & payment. Per the guild’s guidelines, there must be a 60-day notice on cancellations in order to receive a refund for workshops.
Classes that are full or nearly full are indicated below. If there's a waiting list for a class that you want to attend, you're encouraged to fill out a registration form and write 'WL' (waiting list) on the form. Mail the form to Linda Click - her address is on the form. Please don't send any money for wait list classes. If you get into the class - then we'll collect. There's lots of time before the classes start up so even though a class is currently full, there's always the chance that spots will open up.
If you register for the September Trash to Treasures Pineapples workshop, you'll need to have 2 things: Trash to Treasures Pineapples book and Gyleen's pineapple tool ruler (both available on colourfulstitches.com or Amazon).
If you register for either November class, patterns need to be purchased but will be provided to you at a discounted rate by Pam Buda so you can wait until the workshop to get them.
If you register for the February tote class, you'll need to purchase your pattern by Quilts Illustrated. You have 3 sizes to choose from: ps058, ps054, or ps056.
If you register for the April "Paint Your Own Barn Quilt" class, please remember to include the $15 supply registration fee. (One check for $45 is needed for registration for this class.) The $15 supply fee includes the 2'x2' primed paint board, paints, patterns, colored pencils, etc.
We goofed when we included the 2018 Summer Retreat on the workshop sign up form because that falls under the 2018-2019 guild year. For those of you who have already signed up, you're in. But we won't accept any additional registrations until next spring. There will be an announcement when those registrations are opened back up. We apologize for the confusion.
Here's a summary of each month. Photos of the workshops are on the registration form that's included in this newsletter.
