Quilt Guild Presentations

Robyn Gotch and Lulu BearA BIT ABOUT ME:

Before we get into the presentation part, I thought I would tell you a bit about myself.

 

My name is Robyn Gotch, and while originally from Wisconsin, I have called Texas my home for over a decade.  I LOVE Texas!  This is an amazing place to nurture creativity.

 

I am an award-winning quilt creator and long-arm quilter. Over the years, I have created hundreds of custom quilts. Some were commissions, some gifts and many remain in my own possession.

 

My own quilting adventures started when a friend from our bowling league shared her own quilts with me. I could not believe something so beautiful could also be so functional. I was hooked.  For years, I learned the craft by looking in magazines and talking to friends – NO YOUTUBE for me!  But since the dawn of the internet age, I have upped my game.

 

My own take on quilting is to be creative and make my own designs.  These designs are showcased in my blog on a weekly basis and offered in my presentations to guilds. I try many different techniques but love Paper Piecing and Applique.

 

 

I currently have 4 presentations that I offer to quilt guilds. Each has a specific focus.    Also, as time goes by, these are refreshed with new projects and information.

The base price for presentations is $300. Depending on your location, travel and lodging may apply. Duration is approximately 1 hour each.

Below you will see more information on each program. If you have questions, feel free to give me a holler!

NEW for 2024!

Your Long-arm Quilter and You

Are you the type of person that has more finished tops than finished quilts?  Not everyone is cut out for long-arm quilting, and not every quilt can easily be finished on a domestic machine.

 

Whether you routinely have quilts finished by a long-arm quilter or are considering your first, there are many things to consider.

 

In this presentation, I provide information from BOTH perspectives. There are responsibilities on both sides and sometimes having a great long-arm quilter can be akin to finding that right hairdresser.

 

As always, there are quilts to see and examples of some of the elements I discuss.

 

The base price for this presentation is $300. Depending on your location, travel and lodging may apply.

From Kits to Custom

If you have seen this presentation before, you are in for a whole new experience!

 

This is a very well-received trunk show/presentation that focuses on the way I approach quilting.  As many know, I tend to like doing things my own way, so why not be unique? The focus of this presentation is on all the fun ways to put your own stamp on a project, or start from scratch and do a one-of-a-kind quilt. It is not as hard as you think.

 

 

The presentation includes dozens of quilts that tell stories and act as examples of ways to produce custom projects. Each year, new quilts are added.

 

Base price for this presentation is $300. Depending on your location travel and lodging may apply.

Quilted Gown and Doublet

Renaissance meets Quilting

Ever think to yourself “I wonder what else I could do besides quilts, bags and mug rugs”?  I did too!

 

Then I had the idea to combine two of my loves – Sewing and Quilting.  Add to that my love for Renaissance Fairs and you can imagine how much fun I am having.

 

This presentation provides for a little break from the normal Trunk Show.  For approximately an hour, I will show off my custom gown creations, doublets, and custom-quilted designs.

 

Are you looking for an entertaining evening that is a bit outside the norm?  Let’s have some fun!
