Quilt University

July 28, 29 & 30, 2017

Held in odd-numbered years, Quilt University is our biennial gathering for fun and camaraderie, all in a setting that allows us to learn new skills to use in our craft of choice, quilting!  Join us in the Morris Lawrence Building at Washtenaw Community College for a three-day weekend of learning, friendships and fun!

The time has finally arrived to announce our QU 2017 classes!  There are one-day classes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as two-day classes on Saturday & Sunday.  Click on each class below to open it, then click on ‘more’ to see the full details.  GAAGQ members may begin registering right now.  NOTE: you must be signed in as a member to reach the registration page in the Members Only section of this website.

Non-members can register for any available spots beginning May 1.  If you haven’t renewed yet, or want to have the best chance to get the classes you want, join now!

We have invited a wonderful group of internationally known teachers as well as our talented local teachers from the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild. The class selections are exciting and include classes for all skill levels. Additionally some classes will be two-day classes to allow for a more in depth learning session and result in some finished projects.

We are also planning some “Make and Takes” and demonstrations in the evening. There will be additional fun and surprises each day for all to enjoy. The building will be open until 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evening for additional sewing time and the Make and Takes.

Please note that class selections are reduced in number from last QU, so early registration is suggested. Also, we have not blocked any hotel rooms for QU 2017 because there is another event going on in Ann Arbor that same weekend. We suggest that if you plan to stay in Ann Arbor that weekend, you begin to look for a hotel room right away.

All attendees will have the opportunity to attend lunch catered by Washtenaw Community College or you are welcome to brown bag it. This year we will not be serving dinner at Quilt University but you can get together with a group of friends and order food from one of the local eateries. 

We hope you can join us for the entire weekend, or you are welcome to register for any events that fit your schedule. Please join us for the fun and adventure of it all!
