Proposing a Business Seminar, Take & Teach or Schoolhouse Session at Quilt Market
Business seminars are 1 or 2 hours, and are how to run your business (not product-driven). This might be taxes, employee management, display, scheduling classes, advertising, or Facebook & Internet venues.
take & teach
Take & Teach is a 90-minute session each morning before the Market opens. These sessions are led by current Market exhibitors and are about their product generally. At fall show, there might be a classroom of 25 machines, each attendee is making a shop sample of your pattern to take back with them. Or you could have a hands-on session with kit provided, so shop owners and teachers can learn to use and to teach your product.
Schoolhouse is a 15- or 30-minute session, all the day before Market opens. This is a lecture/demo format and still product-driven. BUT you want to be informative, and not offer just a strong sales pitch.
You are welcome to propose all three options. The Take & Teach and Schoolhouse require that you be an exhibitor at the current Quilt Market.
