2018 Workshop Announcement

Greenville Modern Quilt Guild is excited to announce a Fall lecture and workshop with Yvonne Fuchs!

See below for information on Early Bird pricing.

Yvonne Fuchs has been quilting for 20+ years. In her earlier career, Yvonne worked as an aerospace engineer until April 2014, when she radically redesigned her life to focus on her physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Her company name, Quilting Jetgirl, is a blend of her professional histories and the tagline "Sewing at the Speed of Sound" is a nod to her work on the second privately funded (non-government) vehicle to break the sound barrier. Yvonne is a Quilter, Designer, Tech Editor and Blogger with a love for monochromatic minimal quilts. She often explores transparency in her designs and considers being transparent as a life challenge: removing the sense of needing to live behind a veil of secrecy and living fully and authentically.
