Sustainable Stashing Workshop On Demand 2023

Course Summary

This ondemand workshop expands on the information shared
in my  lecture on Sustainable Stashing.

This ondemand workshop takes a deeper dive into  techniques for living  a more eco-conscious life as a quilter.

This is NOT about going on a crash 'no buying ' diet.  That isn't realistic for most of us.
This  is not focused on only using repurposed  fabrics -- although that can be one of the strategies that you can use!

Instead, I show ow  we can really USE the stash of wonderful fabrics that we already have in our homes.    We love fabric--we buy it--and yet we do not use it?    We make quilt tops--or at least start them.  And then, they too sit in our closets.

We need rulers and  other tools--but do we need ALL  of them? Which ones do we use regularly?

In these video lessons, I share practical tips and strategies that can jump start or re-energize your commitment to 'Sewing Your Stash'.  These are small steps that can lead to BIG changes and deepen your satisfaction  with your quilting life.

There's also an online community that you can  pop into to get even more ideas.  Best of all, we can share our  small wins and big steps and cheer each other on.
