From time to time, we all need a little ‘therapy.’ Joan Ford would love to join you for a guild or shop event.
A 60-90 minute fun and funny talk. A perfect opportunity to see a hearty sampling of the quilts from ScrapTherapy, Cut the Scraps!, ScrapTherapy Scraps Plus One!, When Bad Things Happen to Good Quilters, and ScrapTherapy, The Versatile Nine Patch. Vending, too!
Send an email for fee information and to set a date and time.
By far, a ScrapTherapy trunk show is the most popular request, however, if your group would like to sit and sew, perhaps a project workshop would be fun! Review the projects below, then send an email to settle dates and fees.
The projects below are suitable for a 4-6 hour workshop session.
Supply lists will be provided to the event coordinator well in advance of workshop dates.
A project using the concepts from ScrapTherapy, The Versatile Nine-Patch (release date April 2017)
Further information and project photos coming soon.
Turn your well-loved T-shirts into a quilt. My method is quite different from what you might expect! Fusible batting stabilized the knit shirts, instead of stiffening interfacing. Once you learn the method it’s easy to up-size or downsize your quilt to match your T-shirt dreams.
This quilt has so many options! Start with scrap squares from your ScrapTherapy 5″ scrap collection, or dig into your fat quarter stash and find eight that need to become a quilt. Then add some fabric yardage for the background. Add some cool piecing and cutting tips. . . and CHOP-CHOP! Before you know it, the quilt is done!
Use the leftovers from the quilt to make a matching table runner!
The pattern isn’t in any book, find it at your local quilt shop or right here.
Get ready to dig in–and use up TONS of cut up scrap squares–while learning some great techniques! Printed fusible interfacing designed just for this project make this a great how-to workshop.
Thank you so much Joan for the great workshop on Saturday. I love the 99 bottles quilt and can’t wait to finish mine. You do such a great job explaining/demonstrating your technique that I can’t believe how easy it is to produce a quilt with such small scraps. It was a pleasure spending the day with you and I look forward to doing it again!
The super-skinny sashing and lattice strips throughout this quilt can seem a bit intimidating at first glance. With this workshop, take a no-stress approach and get the ‘skinny’ on a few unusual and easy-to-do techniques.

This perennial favorite is a real scrap-hound. Easy and efficient piecing techniques, cool details and a few surprises make this quilt a satisfying project on many levels.
