CrazyQuilt Classes

I've been working on organizing my Crazyquilt Classes that I plan to teach here at my home.  I need to add more to my Crazyquilt Elements Class.  Any suggestions? Toss your ideas at me!  
 
I also need to finish up on my Crazyquilting From Start To Finish 2 day weekend class.  A little at a time I guess!
 
Could ya'll look this over for me and let me know what you think?  And if you have any suggestions for me to add to my Crazyquilt Elements Class, I would really appreciate your ideas!  Thanks!!!  Below is what I have so far! 
 
 
 
I am available to teach groups of stitcher's in the Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin area.  If you would like me to come and teach a Crazy Quilt class to your embroidery group, please call me at 815-344-3442.


I will be offering classes to small groups of 3 students in my home later this Summer.  Classes will include a healthy homemade lunch, fresh homemade cookies and muffins, work booklets and goodie bags.
 
If you have a small group of ladies who would love to come to my home in McHenry, Illinois to learn Crazy Quilting, please contact me for more information and class fees.

Hi Pamela, I live in Mundelein, which isn't too far from McHenry and I would absolutely love to take your Crazy quilting from start to finish as I am just beginning with crazy quilting. It is just me though, I am not part of any group. Please let me know if we could work something out.

Sounds like lots of fun and a perfect class. I sure wish you were closer. Have a lovely Sunday. Hugs, Kim

Hi, I left a comment yesterday but it doesn't look like it went through. I live not far from McHenry in Mundelein and I would love to take the crazy quilt from start to finish class from you. I am a school teacher so have some extra time in the summer that I don't have during the school year. Please let me know if this would be a possibility. I am pretty sure my email shows up when I leave a comment but if it doesn't it is livetorun@aol.com. Thanks!

I don't have any additional ideas for you Pam, because I really think you have it pretty much covered. How I wish I could come and take your class(es) if only so I could spend time with you!!
