Fast and Fabulous
Rotary Cut Applique
Are your Guild members excited about applique quilts? They will be!!
Hi! I'm Sue Pelland, and I am addicted to Applique. I am amazed how many quilters have "Applique Anxiety". My goal for every quilter is to experience and embrace a new way to applique that is even easier than piecing, especially for beginners! If you can rotary cut, you can applique!
I have designed a series of patented rulers (templates) that can be used to rotary cut 15 applique shapes up to 12 at a time. These "workhorse" tools are essential for every quilt I have designed in the past 12 years. You will be amazed at how diverse these quilts are!.
Not a typical "Trunk Show"
Guild members will be delighted to experience a truly unique 60-90 minute presentation. I'll invite you into my sewing room where I will show you a wide variety of applique quilts from traditional to modern. Throughout the interactive trunk show, I will take a moment here and there to demonstrate Rotary Cut Applique techniques used to make the individual shapes in these beautiful quilts. The presentation is friendly and informal. Guild members will learn the secrets of soft snuggly fusible applique quilts with my favorite fusible web. Members will be amazed at the speed and accuracy of the cutting method and the variety of quilts that can be made with this simple method. Every member will have a front-row seat with three camera angles for the trunk show, close-up on my cutting table, at my sewing machine.
Even brand new quilters can make applique quilts, while experienced quilters will find this new take on an old favorite refreshing and inspiring! There is something for everyone as I share a novel approach to applique.
"A huge thank you for a wonderful program and lecture. Your presentation is so enjoyable - chock full of information, quilts to show the end results, and "how quick and easy" appliqué can be. As you know, every Guild has one member that criticizes everything - well - you won her over and she's a traditional hand quilter - she loved the program. ~~Jeanne, Berkshire Quilters

Have some fun together in half and full-day Workshops!
After experiencing the presentation, your members will be asking for a hands-on workshop! Zoom workshops are almost like being there in the same room. I have taught over 25 zoom workshops since mid-April, 2019 and the reviews are overwhelming! The most popular workshops are No Waste Drunkard’s Path (4 hours), Clever Clam Shells (4 hours), Christmas Baubles (4 hours) and Melissa’s Quilt (6 hours).
Workshops are more fun with up to 20 participants. Small workshops give each person more personal attention, but larger workshops offer a more festive atmosphere with more works in progress to share! Participants will want their own template to use in the workshop. The templates range from $23.95 to $27.95.
My inbox is filled with raves about yesterday’s class and how much everyone enjoyed you and your teaching style. With so much excitement, I’d love to let them know when you are coming back to us next year. It was a joy to meet you in person, and your class was so exciting, and how I wished I had participated. You just know I will be taking your next class for sure! Thanks for giving our members such an fun and unique workshop yesterday!

Our event coordinator, Penny, will handle every detail
Penny will handle all the logistics of the Zoom meeting and will forward an e-mail invitation for guild members through the Program Chairperson. Penny will attend to every detail and be the contact person for your guild. She is waiting for your e-mail!
Presentations are $300 for up to 75 people, $400 for groups over 75-300 people.
Guilds can sponsor a workshop with or without a presentation to the guild first. Typically, a workshop will fill only after the guild has seen the presentation.
The cost of a private workshop is $750. If you choose not to host a private workshop, your members are welcome to join in our currently scheduled Live Online Workshops.
Half the payment is due at the time the presentation and/or workshop is booked. The balance is due one week prior to the engagement.
Once all arrangements are made, Penny will ask the guild to sign a contract with Sue Pelland Designs.
I can't wait to share this unique and instructional presentation with your guild! Let Penny know what month works best for you, and we will get you on my calendar!~~ Sue Pelland
