The American Quilter's Society is accepting applications from quilt instructors for the 2011 AQS Quilt Shows in Lancaster, PA (March 16 - 19); Paducah, KY (April 27 - 30); Knoxville, TN (July 13 - 16); and Des Moines, IA (Sept. 28 - Oct. 1).
Information on becoming an AQS instructor is available on the AQS Web site; click here. You will want to send your class information on the Instructor Application form also available on the Web site; one form for each class. The form is in pdf format and you can copy and paste information into it, save it, and e-mail to: Marcelle Cashon, Education Coordinator at marcelle@AQSquilt.com or mail the forms to: AQS, Attn: Marcelle Cashon, PO Box 3290, Paducah, KY 42002-3290.
Most classes are three hours in length so your best opportunity to teach is if you have a good variety of 3-hour classes from which to choose. Remember, quilters do not want to purchase a ton of supplies for a 3-hour class. Kits can be used with a recommended kit fee of $5 - $20. We are always looking for new techniques, and fun and colorful projects. Please send photos of your projects with your application form. Indicate your availability in a cover note when you send the application forms.
If you have any questions, call Marcelle at 270-898-7903, ext. 141.
AQS will contact you when you are selected to teach at one of our shows; otherwise we will keep your information on file for future consideration.
