Is Quilter's Affair 2021 Cancelled?

Some classes were cancelled.  There are 73 classes that will be online through Zoom and 3 offered through email.  These are listed on the Quilters Affair website:  Quilter's Affair (quiltersaffair.com)

When is Quilter's Affair 2021?

July 5-9, 2021.

What time do classes start and end?

Currently, we are working with teachers all over the world to create a master schedule.  That schedule is not in place just yet, but we hope to have it very soon.  When it is created, the time will be on the Quilters Affair website class page.

What is the format for the classes?

Participants will receive an email with access to a private web page for their class that will have instructional videos from the teacher, as well as handouts.  Participants will have access to the web page two days before the scheduled class and three days after the class. 

There will also be a link on the private web page to the zoom call to be held on the day of the class.  Depending on the teacher, the Zoom call could last anywhere from 1-3 hours.  The Zoom call will NOT be recorded.

The Zoom call will be interactive.  It is live and real-time.  Participants can ask questions, ask for help, get feedback, and celebrate the work of their classmates from all over the world.

Do I need to buy a kit for my class?

Some teachers will have kits available that may be purchased directly from them.  Participants will receive an email with supply lists for the class and any messages from the teacher.  These will go out sometime in May.

If you are enrolled in "Stitch Like An Egyptian," you will need to order a kit from them as soon as possible as the kit is shipped from Egypt.  Please note:  The kit is $45 and the shipping is $45 as it is shipped from Egypt.  The kit has everything you will need (minus thread, scissors, and other tools) for the class.

Do I need to do anything special to take the class online?

You will need to have an electronic device that is connected to the internet.  You will need to install a Zoom account.  It is suggested that if you are not familiar with using Zoom, you install that sooner, rather than later, and practice using the app with friends or family members.  Here is where you can access the Zoom signup page:   https://zoom.us/signup. 

Where can I get a supply list for my class?

If you want to see what is needed for a class before you register, here is the link:  Supply Lists – Quilter's Affair.  You will also receive the supply list once you complete your class registration.

Who do I contact if I have questions about Quilter's Affair?

The most efficient method is an email to Lawry@stitchinpost.com.  Lawry has a large volume of emails to process so it may be a few days before you hear anything from her.  Stay patient as she will get your answered as soon as possible.  Please do not call the Stitchin Post as they will only refer you to email Lawry.

Do you have wait lists for sold out classes?

Yes!  Please email Lawry with "Wait List" in the subject line.  In the email just designate the class for which you would like to be waitlisted. 

How do the wait lists work?

Names are added to the list by the time stamp of the requesting email.  When a spot becomes available, Lawry will contact the first person on the list.

When can I expect to hear back from you?

We currently have a very limited workforce (about 6 people) to do everything from processing your orders to sending newsletters and updating both websites.  With social distancing, staggered work times, and working from home we are further limited.  Please trust that we are working hard and doing our very best to get you information, refunds, and orders as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience.

Why am I charged a registration fee when I sign up?

Your non-refundable registration fee covers administrative costs.

Where is my confirmation email?

A confirmation email is sent when you create an account or place an order.  If you don't see the email, please check your junk/spam folder. 

If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact Lawry by email at lawry@stitchinpost.com.
