Annie Smith

Annie, who? Is coming to town!

Annie Smith, the teacher of the UQG’s Exploring Fabric Choices online class, is coming to Salt Lake City for the HMQS show and Quilt Market. The online Chat is scheduled for Thursday night, May 5th, but instead of just doing an online chat, we have arranged for a Meet-up at Quilts, Etc. in Sandy. The Meet-up will be an informal get-together like an Open House. We will meet in the Quilt shop and Annie will have all of her Exploring Fabric Choices sample quilts so you can see them up close and personal. Bring your camera so you can take pictures!

If you can't make this Meet-up, Annie will be sharing Booth # 631 with Valerie Burton at HMQS and will be available for questions.

The Meet-up details:
Thursday night, May 5th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Quilts Etc. (the quilt shop side)
11 East Main, Sandy.

I hope more of you take advantage of this class.  Full instructions on how to register is in the previous post.  The Utah Quilt Guild will have more on-line classes for ALL members, providing there is enough interest.  
Okay!  If you've read this far, here's a little tidbit to entice you even of our esteemed board members who has gone above the call of duty (I think all of us know her) is in at least one of the class videos.  Leave a comment on this post if you've seen the clip and know who it is.  There may be a little prize waiting for you.

Here's what Laurie of Brigham City had to say about Annie's on-line class:

I have watched all the lessons. Everyone should take advantage of this opportunity. Even those of us that are "experienced" can be reminded of tips that we may have forgotten. I also attended her live chat session (I was the ONLY one that showed up....lucky for me, I had Annie all to myself but the membership missed an opportunity to "meet" her and ask questions). The next chat session is in May and I hope to see y'all there. Laurie in Brigham City

Exploring Fabric Choices

Good news for Utah Quilt Guild members!  The new online education program for members is up and running.  "Exploring Fabric Choices" by Annie Smith is a "go at your own pace" class comprised of 14 Workshop episodes and 14 Quilt Project episodes.  You will have access to all the episodes until the end of June, and during that time you can watch any episode at any time.

Some of us had a little trouble registering which must be done in order to gain access.  So, here are the steps: log onto the UQG website, click on "Membership", then click on "Online Class".  This will take you to the UQG page on Annie's site.  On the right sidebar is a place that says "Click to Register".  Once there complete the information required and submit.  Now comes the hard part.  Waiting for verification that you are a UQG member and an email that will give you your password.  Make sure that you save that password!!  The easiest way is to copy and paste.  Once you have access to the class, you can have your computer "remember" you.

 This class is great for beginners and a nice refresher for every level.  Hope you all enjoy the program.
