Teaching/Speaking Schedule 2015 - 2017

Interested in a lecture/trunk show, book signing, or a workshop or two? I am currently scheduling for 2017 with very limited availability. Please look at the schedule below to see if I will be in or near your location.  It may be possible to share expenses or events with other guilds or shops.

Feel free to contact me at bookingforTPS@gmail.com  I will be happy to send you my current contract with requirements and rates and talk with you about the needs of your shop, guild or organization.  Please read my contract carefully.  It is important to understand that dates and rates are not confirmed until a contract is signed by both parties. The classes I am currently teaching are under the class offerings tab on this blog. I am no longer traveling for a lecture/trunk show only unless it is in my local area.  I will only travel for the minimum of a lecture and one workshop. I look forward to hearing from you!

Be sure to sign up to receive my newsletter for announcements of new classes and all the news and events from Tallgrass Prairie Studio.
