Workshops

Workshops are a great way to learn new designs and techniques from our guest speakers.   Generally, QAQG offers 2 or 3 workshops per year.  Workshops and their information will be posted here as they are scheduled.  We are currently offering workshops in person, on demand, or via Zoom. The cost varies by instructor.  E-mail Pam Breig, workshop@quakingaspenquiltguild.org, for more information and to offer your ideas and suggestions.
