We always have exciting programs with nationally known speakers and talented teachers. Please contact our 2nd Vice President for more information.
QGET is proud to be able to provide Tyler quilters with programs and workshops taught by many nationally renowned quilters. Our speakers are authors, quilt pattern designers, fabric dyers and nationally recognized instructors. Many have produced award winning quilts at some of the most prestigious quilt shows in the United States.
Programs are offered the second Thursday of each month following the QGET business meeting at First Christian Church, Tyler. There is no charge to attend a program.
Workshops vary in length from 1/2 day to a full day. They are held on the second Friday of the month. Full day workshops are generally $40 for members who sign up in advance and $45 for members who sign up at the meeting on Thursday just prior to the workshop. Cost may vary with the length of the workshop. Workshops begin at 9am. Participants are encouraged to arrive by 8:30 to set up machines and supplies if necessary. Workshops are in the workshop room at First Christian Church, Tyler. Participants in full day workshops are responsible for either bringing their lunch or obtaining lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Diane Rose, theamazingquilter.com
Program: Sewing without Sight
Diane is the only known totally blind quilter. Vision-impaired with glaucoma all her life, Diane became blind as a result of an accident in 1984, a mere four days before she was to undergo a cornea transplant. Not only has that condition not slowed her down, Diane has used it to serve as a means to motivate others to achieve their true potential. "The way I look at it, if I can do what I have done without sight, how much can you do?" Her quilts hang in the homes of many famous people including George Bush and Dolly Parton.
