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?
Support the guild and take some classes! Sign up today! Try something new. You’re bound to develop some new skills and you’ll definitely have a good time while making new friends and strengthening old bonds.
Talk to your friends and suggest teachers that several of you would like us to contact for the upcoming year. We’re always looking for ideas, and we want to be sure we are hiring the people you truly want to see.
If you have any questions or want to sign up for any of our wonderful classes,
Send your checks made out to Naples Quilters Guild to: Judy Bauckham

Our August class will be Folded Log Cabins taught by Judy Bauckham.
Most quilters have tried their hand at making a Log Cabin block.
Our August program is all about Log Cabin Blocks Gone Rogue!!
These quilts and quilt blocks have taken the log cabin block into a whole new dimension and yet, they are still basically the familiar log cabin design.
Thanks to our guild member, Wynn Ridgeway, we will once again be hosted at Ridgeway’s Restaurant for our August class.
Our project will be Folded Log Cabins.
These quilts are great for wall art.
The technique has been documented by Sarah Kaufman in her book Folded Log Cabins.
The blocks are easy and fast to make and the results are stunning.
Below are some examples of the quilts and details about the class.
