Ready for something new? Have we got some great news for you!
A few months ago, you were asked to share your ideas for programs and activities you’d like to see. We had a great response to that survey. Some of the
requests were for techniques you wanted to learn or things you want to do that don’t really fit into a workshop day. The answer? TECHNIQUE DAYS!
These will be days when talented members in our own guild will demonstrate something. These won’t exactly be “classes” and they usually won’t take a whole day.
Best of all- they will be FREE! We’ve scheduled 4 Technique Days in the remainder of 2024 and if they are well received, we’ll schedule more next year. They will be on a Friday or a Saturday at Aloha Sew and Vac. You can just come in the morning for the demo or stay all day and work on the project.
These days will be a great opportunity to learn, make new friends, and have FUN!
Our first Technique Day will be on Saturday, June 8. You will need to register but there will not be a charge.

2024 Technique Days:
Saturday, June 8   Claire Gottschalk – Wrist wrap clip holder, collapsible thread catcher

Friday, August 2  TBD
Saturday, Nov 2     Sue Hauser – Holiday light strand (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Xmas)

You’ve heard of Christmas in July…. But chances are, you’ve never celebrated Christmas in June!  Join Karen Walker in making a project with her newest pattern, “Frosty”.  Frosty isn’t just for Christmas, though.  He likes to warm you all through the winter.  Karen teaches tips to improve your piecing accuracy.  And there just might be a few Christmas cookies to nibble while you sew.

***Important Info when registering for Workshops: ***


We use a 2-step on-line registration process to enroll in workshops. Please remember that you need to have paid your membership dues for the current year in order to be eligible to attend a workshop. 

The process is as follows:

  • Click on the workshop link button above (right below the workshop description) and you will be directed to complete a registration form which is submitted to the Registrar.
  • The registrar will review your request and if there is room in the workshop an email will be sent to you which gives you a link to make payment through the portal. If not, you will be placed on a wait list. Please remember that you are not registered in the class until you make payment and receive a confirmation email and receipt.

If you need assistance to register or to pay by check or cash, please contact the registrar directly to make arrangements.

Workshop Cancellation Policy

If a participant finds it necessary to cancel, they need to contact the registrar as soon as possible so the seat may potentially be offered to someone else.  If the cancellation is 3 weeks or more prior to the workshop, a refund will be issued.  If it is less than 3 weeks prior to the workshop, no refund will be issued. However, the member cancelling may gift or sell their space to the next person on the waiting list. If there is not a waiting list they can gift or sell to a person of their choosing.

Registrar: Carol Sayles

Non-Member Participation in Workshops 
Workshops are offered to members at a very reasonable cost, as a benefit of membership. Members will be given the first opportunity to register. For most workshops, three weeks prior to the workshop, IF space is available, non-members will be permitted to register at a slightly higher cost.  This is subject to the discretion of the Program Chair and Registrar.
