Not a demo idea, but if you are ever stuck for a speaker, this is a fun idea. A long time member of my guild told me that they once had several members' husbands get up and give humorous talks about what it was like being married to a quilter. Wish I had been there, worth a repeat. I should ask the current program person to have some men lined up as a back up (occasionally speakers have to cancel on short notice).

I am a program co-chairman for our guild. Here are programs that were successful: Christmas gift ideas (potholders, purses, bags, ornaments, placemats, table toppers....members can bring what has been successful); paperpieced hexagons,
yo-yos, importance of correct needles and thread types, caring for your sewing machine, favorite notions and tools, sewing the accurate 1/4" seam, ways to sew half square triangles (there are many), embellishment ideas, borders and variations, quilt labels, making a hanging sleeve. Fat quarter projects are popular. There are many blogs with ideas...sign up on Facebook with Mark Lipinski or Martingale Press, or fabric manufacturers to find more ideas than you can use.

I think fussy cutting and stack&whack would be good demos.

Missouri Star Quilt Co also has one called Serendipity. You end up with two quilts when you are finished. I am going to do this one. I have the fabric, but have not started it yet.

There is a very hot topic at the moment disappearing 4 patch, 9 patch, pinwill, and hour glass - you can see those videos by youtube at missouri star company.

or methods like inklingo, weaving strips for a block, to do a totes or a bag in different methods.

good luck dear.

How about one-seam flying geese. Ricky demonstrated how to do this.

Is there a piece of your work that's been particularly admired. I'd search for the show on here that demonstrates the technique you used then demonstrate that one :)

Hi Laynie and welcome to the Forum! One thing that comes to mind would be to do a demo on how to do a piped binding, very popular, not terribly difficult and something many would like to be able to do. Just one thought. Another might be to demo how to cut and piece a pineapple quilt, they're a lot of fun to make.

Everyone gets a turn and I am an intermediate quilter.

Hi Laynie, and welcome to the forum. I like your partner - even if he is a little wooden! :lol: Is there something you are particularly good at that you can demo or is this just something your guild makes everybody have a turn at?

I have been asked to do a Demo for my Quilting Guild.
Can anyone give me some ideas?

Thanks
Laynie
