    Ladies, I have a question for you. If you had the opportunity to attend a quilting workshop, whose would you want to attend? If you go to workshops, what are the most important things to you? How much does the price of the workshop factor into you decision if you will attend or not? Just wondering!

    I would like to attend a workshop regarding Welsh Wholecloth Quilts and North Country Wholecloths and I want to learn more about design and history.
    There are some teachers in UK (Barbara Chainey, Lilian Hedley, Sandie Lush) who offers workshops like this but unfortunately I can't affort to travel to UK for that reason. But I really love to.

    Barbara Barber - she has some fabulous paper-piecing circular patterns. I have her book but a hands-on lesson would be better. Yes, price would be a factor.
