  2. Pricing: $400 for a 60-90 min presentation. Presentation includes a Sample Project for all guests which will be shipped ahead of time to the zoom host to disperse. Some quilts will be sent to the host (quilt shop or guild) so that the attendees will be able to see them up close.

Teaching Engagements 

Our owner and founder Mattie has taught Quiltsmart classes at quilt shops, trade shows, virtual retreats, and even cruise ships!

We will customize an event for you! 
Mattie will visit your shop, guild, or group in person. 
A typical event starts with an evening trunk show and/or quick project, followed by 2 days of classes, sometimes more. We will chat with you about your customers needs, the facility, and any other issues that might be unique to your venue. For example, you can concentrate on one quilt, one method, quick projects, or one method one day, and another the next.
Price: $750 per day plus expenses. Expenses include mileage and/or airfare, travel insurance, and meals during the event. 50% deposit is due at time of booking. Quiltsmart will email a detailed invoice for this deposit.
If cancelled by the host: 50% refunded if cancelled prior to 2 weeks of the event. Plus, any non-refundable expenses already incurred will be responsible by the host. If rescheduled, we would apply your deposit to the future event if within 1 year.
If cancelled by Quiltsmart: your deposit will be refunded in full. That doesn't happen often (twice in 30 years!), but we would then discuss rescheduling the event.
