CALL FOR TEACHERS
Quilt Canada 2017
Guidelines for Proposals
The deadline for applications is Monday, March 14, 2016.
Please read these Guidelines before submitting the online form. Note that only online applications will be accepted.
Quilt Canada 2017 will be on June 14-17, 2017 at The International Center, Mississauga, Ontario.
Teacher’s name must be in the file name of all attachments – this is essential for admin purposes e.g. Bio Mary Smith.
Information required for all uploaded files:
- Your name and email address.
- For class descriptions may we suggest you use a clever, “catchy” title for the class to encourage registration. Good marketability of your class is an advantage. Class topic descriptions should be written in such a manner that entices quilters to want to register. Choose workshop/lecture titles and descriptions that inspire & excite. Boring and “old” is not good. Fresh, original and contemporary is what encourages quilters to sign up.
- Pictures of class project or technique is ESSENTIAL – must be clear pictures of whole project as well as close ups. More than 1 picture if possible. The more we have to look at the better to assist us in the selection process. All attachments must include class title. You can use FastStone Photo Resizer, a free download, to resize pictures to less than 0.5MB.
- Please offer a good choice of inspiring, original and contemporary topics - 1 day; ½ day and 2-3 hour lecture formats are preferred. We are offering shorter workshops as the members have told us this is what they want.
- Proposals should be compiled in a similar way to an application for a job: a Quilting Resume which gives ALL relevant information briefly and is presented in a logical and professional manner.
- Please avoid sending incomplete proposals with vague descriptions.
- Teacher should include his/her teaching history: where you have taught, what did you teach, how often has topic been presented.
- Please also include any relevant Quilting achievements such as awards, ribbons, publications, etc.
- A website or blog with further information about the teacher and his/her classes & body of work is very helpful and will be listed on the registration page if your workshop is selected.
- References from Guilds and/or previous class attendees are recommended. Names, email and telephone number of references is required so we may contact these for more information about your teaching if necessary.
