Trunk Shows

Attention All Shop Owners and Guilds!  Book a fabulous Dragonfly Fiberart trunk show!  We bring all the fun and samples to you.  Also keep us in mind for your Shop Hop!  We have great ideas for themes and special pricing for patterns.


Trunk Show Presentations & Lectures
Schedule a lively event for your shop or guild.  Great opportunity for Saturday samplers where we can demonstrate new tools and techniques as well as a full trunk show of our wonderful quilts and runners.  For guild presentations, format can be worked into a one hour format.  Choose from The Great Traveling Tote Bag Trunk Show, The Art of The Small Quilt, Perfect Mistakes and Other Design Journeys, Beating Your Stash Before It Eats You, Table Runners Galore or Seasonal Fun Projects. We plan a Trunk Show to run about 1 to 1-1/2 hours, with time allowed for questions and answers and of course a raffle of goodies! We also love to do these in conjunction with a workshop or class.

A wide range of machines have been used on the bags including the following brands: Bernina, Babylock, Brother, Singer, Viking and Janome. Let's get folks excited about the machines they own or are considering the purchase of. Everyone gets a free pattern to take home as well as a handout which covers the highlights of the discussion for future reference. If you are a machine reseller, we speak to your particular brand when describing accessories such a feet and tools.

Classes & Workshops
Classes are tailored to the interests of your group.  Call us for suggestions.  Tote bag classes and technique classes are a specialty!  Need to teach a new ruler or block method? X-Block, Hexes, Triangles, Paper Piecing, fun techniques like Disappearing Nine Patch, Raw Edge Applique With Style, Quilt As You Go, Block Border Bonanza are all great skill builders.  For Tote Bag classes, we pick one pattern for the entire group.  Of course we love to teach ours (Carolina Bag, Kennebunk Carryall, Jamestown Bag, Newporter, etc) but will also teach other pattern designs like Pink Sand Beach, Noodlehead or Lazy Girl.  For all classes and workshops, pre-class prep sheets are sent in advance for distribution.  Most classes require some cutting prior to the class to save time. Students may require additional time beyond the class format to complete their project. Maximum number of students is 14 per class or 20 for a full day workshop.
An optional class or workshop can be added to any event with a pattern of your choosing or one recommended by us based on the demographic of your client base.  We also supply a list of add-on sells such as specialty notions and rulers so that the shop can order sufficient stock.Let us know what your would like!
