Sure, you're a great quilter, but do you have what
it takes to teach?
||Lesley Riley, here with her 'Ten of Cups' quilt at the SAQA
Tarnish exhibit, will present 'What it Takes to Teach--
Quilting and More' in a live web seminar May 28, 2014.
Fresh from the opening of Tarnish

by members of Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA), where her stunning "Ten of Cups"
quilt was shown, Lesley Riley has agreed to share her tips, tools, and techniques
for deciding whether teaching is for you and, if so, how to go about it.

hosted by our friends at Quiltmaker, Lesley will help you combine
your art skills, knowledge, personality, and style into classes that your
students will love, recommend, and want more of. There will be plenty of time for questions!
