What is this site all about?
This is a FREE website that lets guild members search for traveling quilt/craft teachers and hire those teachers for their guild. It works! Guilds across North America are using it daily to find, query, and book quilt teachers.
The intent of the site is to connect guilds and quilt (craft) teachers. Guilds can search the Calendar to find teachers who are already booked near their guild (in the same state or a nearby state) and then BOTH guilds can hire the teacher and split the teacher’s travel expenses. Guilds can also search for teachers based on the teacher’s home state or teaching specialty.
Great idea, right?
How to use this site – Guild Members
Use the Search the Calendar link at the top and then select the state or province you are in or near, and see who’s booked in the coming months.
Click any teacher name on the calendar and you will see a pop-up with more details about the Teacher’s engagement.
Contact the teacher to see if she has time to travel to your guild before or after her engagement.
Contact the other guild to split expenses.
Have fun with a great new teacher!!
