Our Schedule We begin with Registration on Thursday afternoon and a reception in the evening. Classes are scheduled Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until noon. Our schedule is always a mix of software classes, design inspiration, and how-to, special projects, quilt challenge, show and tell, and fun. Joan and I don't write our specific lesson plans until just a few months out since we want the information to be the most current we can offer.
Names not automatically added to list. We will add your name as soon as possible
Our Belle pins have been a favorite item and we are offering them again this year, along with a two-sided charm that can be added to a Pandora bracelet, necklace, or any other way you might want to show you are a Belle.
Pins and charms must be ordered in advance and will be paid for at our registration table when you check in. We do not mail pins, but if you know a Belle who cannot be here this year, you may order one for her and pay when you pick it up.
We can keep the prices the same as previous years; $65 if we order in volume. Both of these were made as suggestions from our Belles and we expect them to sell quickly. We're hoping you love them as much as we love all our Belles. Our last date to have them made is March 1.
Machine Maintenance and Computer Basics with Mark Elliott Maintenance and Computer Basics are scheduled for Thursday evening, after Meet and Greet. These are optional classes. Each will last about 60-90 minutes. If you are interested in one or both, please use the link here to register and pay. Mark Elliott's classes

Week 2 Waiting List Peggy Tanler David Conrad Marji Killion Jeannette Aspelin Jeri McConnell Peggy Lewis Maryellen Robinson Cathy Schwegel
We know that unexpected things can happen in our lives and we occasionally have someone who will not be able to join us. Anyone having to cancel after February 1 will not receive a refund but will be moved to our 2020 calendar.
If your guest cannot come with you, those meals can be cancelled and refunded up to 2 weeks ahead.
Designer Policy We welcome designers to join us at Southern Belle as students. Designers will be introduced during our reception and may put a quarter page B&W advertisement/discount coupon in our handout booklet at no charge.
Designers wishing to stay for both weeks to meet and socialize with all of our Belle students may join us by paying only a guest fee for the additional week. This will allow access to our reception, show and tell, quilt shop, quilt show, hospitality room, and our Saturday evening program, but not to the classroom sessions a second time. Student week and Guest week can be scheduled in either order, depending on availability and which group you prefer.
Every year we have a complaint or two about distractions or interruptions during class time. In order to provide for a better learning environment for everyone during class, we ask that you keep your personal conversations to a minimum so that students sitting near you can hear the presentations. Everyone wants to see and hear what is being offered and we want your attention, too.
We understand that no one travels these days without a cell phone to keep in touch with family. And, we do encourage you to bring your laptops for use after class to practice new techniques or to study pattern choices and share ideas with others.
But, please, no use of cell phones or laptops during class time. If there is a need for an emergency phone conversation, please take it out to the hallway. And due to safety concerns with laptop cords, we ask you to schedule your your laptop time after class.
Also, because some of our students have problems/allergies with fragrances, we ask that you be thoughtful about this as you get ready for the day.
