Scheduled Workshops and Lectures

Our world has changed tremendously in the last few months and we will all have to adapt to the changes. I am in the process of getting everything ready to do all of my workshops and lectures as Zoom meetings or on demand classes. You can read the descriptions by clicking on the links below. My Zoom lectures will be $495 for 45 minutes plus 15 minutes of questions and answers. My 6 hour Zoom workshops will be $49 per person with a 12 person minimum. I can do a 3 hour workshop by adapting the 6 hour. The 3 hour will be $39 per person with a 12 person minimum. Everyone in the classes will need to have a working camera so I can see them and they can see me. The students will need to register and pay through me if possible for the workshops. I will be doing my multi day workshops as on demand with email for questions or possibly a Facebook group for each class.

At this time I have two lectures. 

Indigo Shibori Dyeing from Itajime, Arashi, Nui, Kumo and beyond.

This is a combination slide presentation and trunk show. I will explain the concept of Shibori and show examples of many of the different techniques. The slide presentation is of my Shibori experiences in Japan and the US where I have done extensive studies. I will also show a collection of hand dyed fabrics and quilts made from Shibori fabrics.

No Diamonds/ No “Y” Seams, Old Quilts—New Methods Trunk Show /Lecture

Learn about the technique Debbie uses to design quilts that are beautiful and look complicated; but they are truly simple to master and will put beginners on a lifelong path of quilting. Accomplished quilters will appreciate Debbie’s sophisticated designs and ease of completion. Quilters also will get an up-close and personal look at 75-80 quilts pieced using her designs in various fabric selections.

Please email me if you have questions. debbie@debbiemaddy.com
