"The Early Days"
How it all started for the Humble Bee. Whether you want to get into
the business or just find out what it really takes to get a pattern
from idea to the quilter, I think you'll be amazed. I will share
some of my first ventures, how I got going and what I really had to
learn to publish. I'll bring all the quilts - from beginning to end.
"Why doesn't Mine Look Like Yours?"
What many quilters overlook when piecing a quilt. Let's look at all
the reasons why blocks don't measure correctly, quilts don't lay
flat and borders are ruffled, just to name a few. Lots of tips -
lots of humor.

All day class
Spend some time with Amy and learn how to combat bad piecing, strong
arm pressing and other problems that plague quilters. We will make a
beautiful quilt, but even better, we will explore all of Amy's "get
outta jail free" tricks to fix it when it's not playing fair. Learn
what a "Screaming Intersection" is and why having a big bottom isn't
all bad. Most of Amy's patterns can be a workshop. Contact us for

students comfortably, have good lighting and enough electrical
outlets to support all the sewing machines and irons.
I will supply you with supply lists and the students must receive
these before class. Students are responsible for their supplies.
If the class is a project class, an original pattern (not a copy)
will be required of each student.
I will send a class sample, when I have one available. Samples must
be returned in the same condition as they arrived.
