Welcome to the QuiltCon 2024 Faculty Submission process!


What are we looking for? 
* Experienced instructors with fresh material, teaching techniques of interest to modern quilters 
* Three-hour or six-hour technique-based workshops that yield some type of project 
* Topics that range from intermediate to advanced levels of difficulty in content 
* 45-minute lecture proposals on technique, history, style, and other quilting topics
* Applicants must submit a photo sample for each proposed workshop. JPGs are preferred, with a max size of 16 MB per photo. 
 
NOTE: If you wish to teach workshops, please be sure to submit at least one three-hour workshop concept. Three-hour workshops are crucial to filling the QuiltCon schedule, and each workshop instructor is expected to teach at least one three-hour workshop. 

As you prepare your application, ask yourself these questions: 
  1. Are you showing your best work? Are you showing new work? QuiltCon attendees want fresh, new workshops and lectures, so be sure to offer new options, especially if you travel to teach frequently. 
  2. Is your course unique? Is anyone else teaching what you are proposing? 
  3. If the workshop is not a quilt project, how does it directly translate to quilting techniques? 
  4. Are the photos of your projects clear and styled in a professional manner?
