LECTURES

How To Sew Art!
This lecture will tell how “Quilted Photography” was developed. I will share with the group how I remain creative. I will show my first quilts and the newest quilts to explain the evolution of “Quilted Photography” from the beginning till now. This lecture is funny, entertaining, informative and inspiring!

WORKSHOPS

Easy & Amazing Quilted Photography
In my class you will transform ordinary fabric strips in to unbelievably beautiful photographic quilts! You will choose your own photo to quilt. The quilts look intricate and difficult to make, but it’s easy, even if you are just beginning to quilt. Each quilted photo takes only a few hours to make and you’ll learn the simple sewing techniques that will reduce your sewing time by 85%. Your friends will gasp in amazement when they realize your quilt is really a photograph! This class is based on my second book “More Amazing Quilted Photography”. As seen on HGTV’s “Simply Quilts” (episode #819), Friends of Kaye on PBS, Sewing With Nancy.

 Amazingly Contoured Quilted Photography
In this class you will learn how to make an amazing photo quilt with my free form technique. This technique is what I used to get into the Smithsonian Craft Show and also to win the Japan award for Quilt National. This class is based on my fourth book “How To Sew Art”.

Visuals to promote workshop and lecture can be sent upon request including biographical material and pictures for brochures, newsletters, and introductions.

The Guild may cancel a workshop due to insufficient enrollment at any time prior to the purchase of non- refundable airline tickets, or any other expenses incurred by Tammie.   If a workshop is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, Tammie must be notified before she has incurred any expenses.  If a workshop is canceled after the purchase of airline tickets, the guild will be responsible of paying for the tickets.  If a workshop is canceled, and coming to your group for fewer workshops or lectures than originally agreed upon in this contract will cause economic hardship for Tammie, she reserves the right to cancel the remainder of the contracted workshops / lectures.

If an engagement is cancelled while I am enroute or at the engagement location, the sponsor will be responsible for all contracted fees. If I am unable to fulfill this contract due to illness, injury, or serious family emergency all previously incurred expenses are my responsibility.


If Tammie will be in your area for extra days in order for your group to share expenses with other groups in your area, the guild / conference will be responsible for sharing all expenses on these extra days with the other groups involved.
