naples quilters guild   1983 - 2017    34 Years!

Prices quoted are for members only; non-members slightly higher (+$12).   
In-house teachers: $25............National teachers: $35

IMPORTANT:  Only payment in full reserves your workshop space.  In order to hold your spot in any class, you must pay for it now. Make checks out to Naples Quilters Guild, and mail them to Judy Bauckham  7668 Sussex Ct. Naples, FL 34113.

The guild does not provide refunds.  If you are unable to attend, YOU must find your replacement. The program chairman will maintain a waiting list, but it will be your responsibility to fill your spot.

Future workshops are up to you!  Because attendance at workshops has fallen off in recent years, we have adopted a far more conservative policy in booking future teachers.  Although the guild underwrites some of the expense of our teachers, our Standing Rules mandate that workshops shall be self-sustaining.  We have calculated that with all the expenses (travel, teacher fees and an increase in GGCC fee) a minimum of 15 participants is our break-even point.  In fairness to our teachers and to enable us to avoid paying for things we can’t use, we must decide at least 30 days in advance whether we will have a workshop or will need to cancel it.  We simply cannot wait until the day before.  

What can you do to help?  

If you have any questions or want to sign up for any of our wonderful classes,  


 NOTE - Classroom location:   Our workshops are now held at the FLASH EVENT CENTER

​ Saturday, November 18th, at Flash 
Sharon Ralph
will teach you this paper piecing technique using the Cappuccino pattern. 
This is a great pattern that can be used to learn the Judy Niemeyer paper piecing technique by using 2 ½ “ strips of fabric to create a very appealing block design. 

This pattern accommodates all skill levels, making this a fun and quick project for any beginner or advanced quilt maker to sew. 
The Cappuccino pattern with instructions will make 4 placemats
14” x 20 1/2” and a table runner 14” x 40”. 

Sharon a retired Florida educator of 37 ½ years will make you feel at ease learning this new quilting technique.

Your project will make a great gift but when it is finished you may want to keep it for yourself.

To sign up for class: please send your payment of $ 35.00 which includes the class fee and the
pattern to:
