Classes

I love sharing quilting with others through classes. Below you'll find a list of my upcoming classes, be sure to check back regularly for new offerings! I am currently teaching full day (6 hour) and half day (3 hour) classes and workshops, as well as trunk shows of my quilts. If you are a shop owner/guild program director and would like to learn more about my offerings and/or to schedule me to teach at your shop, please email me at elizabeth(at)dontcallmebetsy(dot)com.
