  • Dandelion Clock – Saturday, October 30 – 9 am to 2:00 pm

Explore Jo’s Freehand Foundation Piecing technique in this skills-based workshop. We will be drawing up our own Dandelion Clock on a foundation fabric before foundation piecing and then tackling wonky improv curves.

Workshop Fee 

$60 per participant for TBQG member


The registration process will open on Tuesday, May 18. There are a limited number of spaces for the workshop.

The email will give instructions about submitting your payment. Your payment must be received within one week to secure your registration.

No Shows are not entitled to a refund.

Very rarely, the workshop will need to be cancelled by the teacher or the Guild.  In such cases, all registrants will receive a full refund of fees paid.

Take care everyone,

Traditional and Curvy – thanks for the great workshops Daisy!


It was great to have Libs Elliot as our guest quilter in January 2021 for two workshops and a Lecture “Quilting by Code”.


Many thanks to Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop who led us through two two fantastic workshops and presented a trunk show to all of our members in October 2020.
