Saturday January 2nd and Saturday February 6th

Anna Brunner will help us make a professional tote.  This Professional Tote Pattern also makes a great bag for travelling. There is a pleated pocket on each side of the tote to hold a bottle of water, umbrella, magazine, baby bottle or cellphone. On the front is a zippered pocket to hold your ID and Passport for airport travel. Behind that pocket is one for your boarding pass. On the backside is one large pocket for a newspaper. On the inside, there is a large center dividing zippered pocket that holds file folders. There is plenty of room inside for a laptop computer. Several pockets are inside for your business cards, keys, pens, PDA and more. To finish it off, there is a zipper that will close tightly to keep the contents secure. This would also work great as a sewing tote with a place for patterns or books, fabrics and notions, and it would make a great diaper bag. Approximate finished size is 15″ tall x 18″ wide x 5” deep.

Cost is $25.00.

We encourage everyone in the Guild to take advantage of the Workshops offered. Professional Teachers are booked months in advance and at considerable expense by the Guild. Please check your calendar before signing up for a workshop.

Your Registration is not confirmed until a check is received by the Registrar either at a meeting or by mail.  Post-dated checks will not be accepted. Each Workshop requires a separate check dated the day you register.

A copy of the supply list will be sent to your email address or provided at a meeting only after payment is received and confirmed. Full payment is required at least two weeks before the Workshop. If the Registrar does not receive your payment, your spot will be released to someone on the waiting list.

CANCELLATION BY STUDENT: For workshops with Professional Teachers, to be fair to everyone and to cover the cost of the Workshop, NO REFUNDS will be issued.

There is no “auditing” of workshops. The Annex is closed to anyone but registered students on workshop Saturdays. Guests and children are not permitted to sit in on workshops.

If a workshop is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, you will receive a full refund. Please register early to ensure that minimum enrollment numbers are met so that a workshop you wanted isn’t cancelled before you sign up.

If you have questions or suggestions, please email
