Latifah Saafir Workshop Sign-Up Details

April 28, 2016

Latifah Saafir will be teaching her Glam Clam workshop for the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild at Thimbles quilt shop in Lockport, IL from 10am-4:30pm on Saturday, July 16th (lunch will be included).

The cost of the workshop will $75 + materials (fabric for your quilt, plus her clammy ruler will be available for purchase).

Registration and payment for this workshop will be online only, and it will be first come, first serve. 

In order to reserve it for Chicago MQG members only (at least for the initial wave of registration), the link to registration will be found in a private post on the MQG forums in the Chicago MQG’s group. There are 24 slots for students in the class, and you must pay online at the time of registration (via paypal or credit/debit card). A waitlist will be created for any sign-ups beyond that 24 slots, and they will be contacted if there are any cancellations. If you need to cancel up to 7 days in advance of the workshop, we will refund your whole payment as we are able to fill your slot off the waitlist. If you cancel within 7 days of the workshop, we will try to fill your slot, but we cannot guarantee a refund.

The registration page will go live at 10am, Saturday, May 21st. The page and link WILL be posted BEFORE that date, but it will not link to a live registration form UNTIL 10am. 

 Registration will be opened to the general public on June 16th IF the class has not been filled by guild members by that time.

 This is a new style of registration for our guild, but we are using it because we believe it will be a fair way for interested parties to ensure their slot in this class at the time of registration. The live registration will be programmed in advance by computer, think of the process as akin to buying tickets for a concert or event OR registering for classes at Quiltcon.

 We recognize that not everyone uses the Modern Quilt Guild Forums regularly, so we will be posting a blog post with details on how to do it. We will also be presenting a walk-through presentation of how to sign-up/join during our May 15th meeting. We strongly suggest that, if you are not fluent in getting online into our group (there is a link on the sidebar of this blog at all times directly to our group) and logging into the site, that you do a practice run before you intend to sign-up and possibly even before the May 15th meeting. At the meeting, you are encouraged to bring your smartphone, tablet or laptop and play along, there will be people at the meeting to help you troubleshoot and sign-up. There will not be tech support on call during the start of registration.

If you have not activated your Modern Quilt Guild forums registration, please be sure to do this in advance of registration. If you have activated it, but you are not sure of your password or login, etc, we strongly suggest you address this well before you try to register. If you haven’t been paired to/joined the Chicago Guild’s particular group and forum, please be sure to address that in advance. There will not be someone available that morning to address personal technical difficulties.

Watch for more information and the registration form in the coming weeks.
