Quilter's Calendar

I just learned about a great new service and wanted to share the information with you. If you know the program chair at your quilt guild or another guild, please share this.

The Quilter’s Calendar is a brand new website that connects quilters and guilds with quilt teachers, using an easily searchable online calendar.

Instead of having to search through every quilt teacher’s website, looking for opportunities to book that teacher or attend a class, quilters and guild members can use the calendar, which is searchable by state or province, to see quilt teachers that are scheduled in their state/province or nearby.

Guilds can then contact the teacher to book them to their guild, sharing expenses between guilds. That means less expenses and more opportunities for classes for guilds and their members.

Quilters can easily see what events, classes, retreats and shows are happening in their state, month by month.

Teachers can submit their teaching engagements for free, and by being visible on the calendar they can enjoy higher attendance and increase their opportunity to receive “piggy back” teaching engagements.

Visit today to see what’s happening near you!

  1. Annie, thanks for this link. I am just finishing up two years as co-program chair for my guild and wish there was a tool like this. We can't afford to bring teachers that we have to pay airline fares and hotels, so we are always looking for local teachers (within 2 hours of Metro Boston)
    We have tried sharing in the past with other guilds but no one meets in alignment with our date.
    But I have passed it on the new Program Chairs and hopefully they will be able to use it as the tool matures and gains more users.


Thank you for submitting a comment on my blog!
