On the Road...

I realized the other day that I really haven't posted much on all the new places I'll be visiting in the coming months.

I'm going to start updating ya'll with my upcoming lectures and workshops, quilt shows, and vending spots so just in case you're around NC or SC, you can stop in and say "hello!"

Here's the latest list of upcoming events:

March 29th - Picturing America: Quilting with Leah Day - Cleveland County Memorial Library, Shelby NC at 6:30 pm. In this 1 hour lecture I'll show a variety of quilts and discuss the history of quilt-making.

April 8th - Lecture and Workshop with the Piedmont Quilter's Guild - Greensboro, NC. The workshop is in the afternoon from 1-4 on Fantastic Filler Stitches and the lecture starts at 7 pm and will be on the 3rd Dimension of Design (Quilting!)

May 1st - 2010 Quilting and Needlecraft Expo - Albemarle, NC - One stop shopping at the Stanley County Fair Grounds from 9 am to 6 pm. I'll be doing free motion quilting demonstrations and have the whole shop of stencils, dvds, ebooks, tools, and notions as well!
June 2nd - Lecture with the Piecemakers Quilt Guild - Lincolnton, NC - 11 am - This will be a trunk show featuring many quilts evolving from when I started quilting in 2005 to the present.

June 3rd - 6th - North Carolina Quilt Symposium! - I'm attending as a student this year and am planning to enter 2 quilts in the show. Guess which ones?!

July 19th - Lecture with the York County Quilter's Guild - York, SC - 7 pm - This is a lecture about the 3rd Dimension of Design - Quilting and the role it has played in many of my quilts.

I think that's enough for now! Right now I'm only traveling within NC and SC, and limiting myself to 1 engagement per month. I don't want to get too busy I don't have time to quilt!

Of course, if you're interested in having me come to your guild for a lecture and workshop, please just contact me and we can set it up.

Let's go Quilt!

Leah Day


  1. I would love it if you would eventually expand toward Atlanta! We have a lot of quilters here, especially north of the city.

  2. It would be a pleasure to meet you in person!!! And one day, it will happen.....

  3. you ever get up to the Hendersonville, NC area or even into Western NC?

  4. we feel very fortunate that Leah is coming to our guild in Judy... I for one can't wait... Gail

  5. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilts at Symposium!

    I also find myself constantly telling quilters about your weblog! I think it's a fantastic resource. I was telling Sharon Schamber and a bunch of workshop attendees about you this last weekend. Were your ears burning?? LOL

    I'm hoping our (Capital Quilters Guild) program chair calls you too. :-)
