ZOOM Lectures


 1. Poppyprint: The Search for Signature Style

Krista can present this Powerpoint slide show live at your meeting on ZOOM (60 minutes with question period), or send a pre-recorded .mp4 file to overseas guilds in not-so-convenient time zones* to share with their members (45 minute recording).

As a traditionally-informed modern quilter, Krista has explored many different styles and techniques since she began quilting in 2000. In this photo-rich presentation, Krista shares simple yet effective strategies that have worked for her in the search for a unique creative voice while remaining connected to myriad inspiration sources like print and social media, quilt shows, conferences, local quilts shops and guilds.





2. Who Gives a Flying FQ About Accuracy?

Krista can present this Powerpoint slide show live at your meeting on ZOOM (60 minutes with question period), or send a pre-recorded .mp4 file to overseas guilds in not-so-convenient time zones* to share with their members (50 minute recording).

In this live Powerpoint slide show, Krista presents an update version of her webinar originally produced for the Modern Quilt Guild. In it, she discusses the why and how of cutting, piecing and pressing accuracy, then follows up with the “but when is it really important?” part. This presentation is chock full of information, myth-busting tips, many detailed photos, notion recommendations and piecing tricks. We may even get into the side vs open pressing debate!







3. AURIFILOSOPHY
Krista is a certified Aurifilosopher, having trained with Aurifil's owner/President Alex Veronelli and Master Thread Educator Karen Miller. She can deliver a live, professional Powerpoint lecture on the origin, history,
production and uses of all Aurifil thread weights with photographic samples of projects and specific threads stitched out onto quilt sandwiches for comparison. Each Zoom attendee will receive one small spool of Aurifil thread in a random colour & weight and a product catalogue (shipped after the presentation directly to a guild representative for distribution).



Threadplay Pouch AufilosophyWorkshop

To support guild programming, Krista also offers a half-day (3 hour) workshop to follow the presentation. Students will make a Quilt-as-you-go zipper pouch. The pouch is designed to show off stitch patterns in multiple thread weights. Participants may purchase custom Poppyprint Aurifil sample thread packs in advance that include 5 small spools of thread in weights 12, 28, 40, 50,  & 80 wt. A minimum of one month lead time is required to order and ship sample packs to the guild representative for distribution to members.





*Krista lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in the Pacific Time zone.
