What kind of teachers is the Global Quilt Connection looking for?

Teachers who are confident in the VIRTUAL world. Quilt Guilds come to us looking for quality programs, workshops, and events that they can offer VIRTUALLY to their members via Zoom. Individual quilters come to us looking for individual-enrollments that they can sign up for without having to go through a guild.

If you offer any kind of program that is of interest to a quilt guild, are available for hire, and are confident in your technical abilities online, we invite you to sign up to present your offerings at an upcoming Live Meet the Teacher webinar.

Please review our terms, conditions, requirements and refund policy below BEFORE you register to present at a Global Quilt Connection webinar.

Terms of purchase

When you register to present at a Global Quilt Connection webinar you are purchasing a one year membership.  

Your membership includes:

  • Opportunities to share your virtual offerings via a live zoom webinar to a global audience
  • Your lectures and/or workshops marketed to a targeted audience to thousands of guilds
  • Your name listed on GQC website teacher directory page with links directly to your website
  • Your information included in all of the searchable documents available to thousands of guilds and potential students on the GQC website
  • Membership to a supportive community of virtual teachers on FaceBook
  • Quarterly teacher roundtable discussions via Zoom
  • Access to valuable informational resources for virtual teachers
  • Opportunity to apply for the yearly virtual sampler platter event
  • Your membership will expire one year from the date of the webinar your video is presented at
  • Webinar recordings stay live on the GQC website for two years

You  will have the option to renew your membership for a second year without presenting at a new webinar.  After that time, if you wish to renew for a third year you will need to create a new video for an upcoming live webinar. 

If you have new offerings and wish to present a new video at an upcoming webinar before your year’s membership is up, you must pay a new registration fee. Your 1 year membership will be reset to 1 year from the date of your most recent webinar presentation.  

Changes and updates to your GQC directory listing

When you register for a GQC webinar all of the data you enter on the registration form is used to populate the GQC website.  You will receive an email when your information is added to the website so that you can verify that it is correct.  If after that time you want to make a change to your listing (for example a new website, email etc) there will be a $10 change fee and it may take up to three weeks for the update to appear on the website.

Video requirements

Each teacher must prepare a 3 minute video advertising their virtual workshops, lectures, and events. The video will be due a minimum of four weeks before the live webinar.  All videos will be compiled and played by the GQC host during the live webinar. This will guarantee a professional presentation and provide a much smoother experience for your viewers. We do not allow live presentations during the webinars. We strongly recommend that you spend some time viewing recordings of previous GQC webinars.

Video content recommendations:

Introduce yourself by name and present a clear representation of the lectures, events, and classes you give. Most importantly, look like you are comfortable with the technology that you are using.  

Make sure to repeat your name and your website during your closing statement.

You must prepare an entirely new video for each webinar that you present at.

Do not announce your prices in your video. The videos are available on the GQC website for 2 years and you may want to change your pricing during that time.

You will be required to be present at the live webinar in order to monitor the chat for questions about your video and for the live Q&A session with attendees. 

Guilds and viewers will be provided a PDF in presentation order for your webinar that includes your website and email contact information.

Guilds will be responsible for contacting you. The more hiring information you have easily available  on your website the easier it will be for them to hire you. This includes course descriptions, contact information, pricing, and sign-up links for on-demand courses.

Please read the FAQ for GUILDS to see the repeated questions we get after each webinar.

Video update policy

We are not able to update videos in our webinar recordings. 

Refund policy

We do not issue refunds for any reason. Lots of work goes on behind the scenes as soon as you press that registration button. Just as much goes into having to remove you. Thank you for your understanding.
