Guest Speaker Classes

In addition to workshops led by guild members, we also sponsor professional classes with guest speakers from our monthly general meetings. It is a great opportunity to learn from accomplished quilt artists.

Registration opens 90 days prior to the class date. Payment reserves your spot in the class. Classes are non-transferable and non-refundable. Non-members are welcome to sign up, but will be charged a slightly higher fee. Registrants may cancel up to 35 days before the class.

GQCCC may choose to cancel the class if the minimum number of signups is not reached 30 days prior to the class date. The minimum number of students varies by class.

If the instructor is available to teach locally, the class will be held in-person GQCCC’s Farmhouse location at 5554 Clayton Rd in the “Big Room”. Otherwise, the class will be held over Zoom.
