This amazing All-Star Sampler is free to our individual members. We will also be live streaming the classes at the Fiber Arts Center for those who would like to view this virtual presentation in person here. We will have a “quiet room” for viewing and doing hand work and a “chatting” room where participants can do handwork and socialize if they need a break. If members wish to attend the classes live at the Fiber Arts Center the cost to do so is $5.00 for both days from 3-6pm.
We will send out an evaluation sheet the following week that has each presenters name, what they presented and a place to rate the teacher. This feedback will be greatly appreciated to help us decide which teachers to hire to teach future virtual classes. Thank you for taking the time to fill this form out and return to us. Have fun at the All-Star Sampler!
Hello Quilt Friends,
The All-Star Sampler is almost here and we can’t wait to showcase some of our amazing virtual teachers!
We are doing something a little different this time and taking you straight to a private Youtube livestream for our All-Star event instead of funneling everyone through a Zoom webinar. This will avoid the inevitable confusion when the Zoom room fills up in the first minute and viewers are re-directed to the youtube livestream. There will only be one link to click and the visual quality should be better for your viewers.
The links below will take you directly to the events live stream on youtube. Note that there is a different link for each day. Please share both links with your guild members and tell them to save the links in a safe place so that they can easily find them on the day of the events. We recommend sending the links and PDF a second time the morning of the Samplers. Each Sampler will be available at these links for 24 hours after the live event ends.
Included with your registration is a pdf document that has details and supporting
documentation about each teachers demonstration. You’ll find that document here:

The class is intended for the brand new knitter, giving him/her the opportunity to practice their new skills –casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off – while completing a project they can use with pride. We will also examine various yarns and needle sizes, types of stitches and techniques, plus learn about the wonderful world of “Ravelry” . WARNING – this could be addictive!
