FABRIC SCRAPS BECOME TWINE

Fabric Scraps Become Twine

Those who sew and quilt have mounds of excess fabric.   Some pieces are too small for future projects and are discarded.  How can you upcyle or recycle these tiny scraps of fabric?  The tutorial video below illustrates a very simple way to turn fabric scraps into spools of twine.  A simple, easy, DIY project!

teacher-lecturer-submissions

QuiltCon wouldn’t be what it is without the amazing instructors and presenters who share their wisdom in workshops and lectures. We’ve had some amazing speakers throughout the years, and now we’re opening the floor for applications for QuiltCon 2017 in Savannah, Georgia!

We’re looking for experienced instructors who can teach techniques of interest to modern quilters. Our workshop instructors are leaders in their fields for a specific technique, and they offer unique workshops that inform and inspire. QuiltCon instructors also teach techniques that are new to many modern quilters.

In general, we like a balance of technique-based and project-based workshops.

For more details on the application process, please read the application details and complete a submission. Please read through the whole page completely before emailing us with questions.

The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2016 at midnight CST, and applicants will be notified by March 31, 2016. Good luck!
