Modern Celtic: Bias and Beyond Zoom lecture and New Circuitry Zoom workshop

We were thrilled to have Scarlett Rose present a lecture and workshop with our guild this month via Zoom.  Her lecture on “Modern Celtic” quilting was a fantastic presentation in showing how bias tape could be used in a multitude of ways through traditional, modern, and Celtic quilting.  It was truly fascinating to see the wealth of ideas and suggestions in how to incorporate bias tape in all of your quilts through borders, frames, outlines or knot designs.  This lecture was a true eye-opener in learning how this technique could add so much to your modern or traditional quilts!
Scarlett’s workshop, “New Circuitry”, was the perfect compliment to her lecture in learning how easy it was to make your own fusible bias tape, and the tricks in creating your own Celtic knots with the ease of a pattern template.  The results were beautiful!
Scarlett is an excellent instructor and lecturer.  She is extremely knowledgeable and is very patient and helpful in the learning process. 
Thank you, Scarlett, for a wonderful presentation and workshop!

Zoom lecture: "Modern Celtic: Bias and Beyond"

"Scarlett Rose’s Lecture "Modern Celtic: Bias and Beyond” was a very informational and fascinating look at modern Celtic quilting. She was knowledgeable and engaging and it was clear that she is passionate about this work. We are grateful for Zoom because since we are in Massachusetts we would not have access to such an accomplished quilting expert."

Round Robin Quilts Presentation & Camellian Star Workshop

Scarlett recently was the guest speaker at our guild meeting and led a workshop the following day. Her presentation was all about Round Robin quilts. She had so many wonderful, creative and diverse examples of Round Robins she has participated in over the years. Several people mentioned they would now like to participate in a Round Robin. Her workshop the next day was on the Camellian Star. She was so patient and helpful wanting to make sure we all understood the process and were successful! Scarlett, you are an amazing, interesting person! I would highly recommend her for any guild's meeting or workshop.

My Life as a Quilt Artist Zoom lecture

We were very pleased to host Scarlett at our recent Zoom monthly meeting. All our meetings usually are live but due to Covid over the last 12 months or, so we have been using the Zoom platform and have hosted many speakers in that time. I would recommend Scarlett to any Guilds looking for a competent speaker with good online presence, backed up by good technical skills using high speed bandwidth.

After each segment of her talk, Scarlett would pause and allow time for our members to ask questions which was very helpful.

Scarlett covered her work starting in the early 1990’s to the present day. We were particularly impressed with the designs she had put together for her wedding focusing on her Japanese heritage. Her skills in blending different types of quilting techniques in particular Celtic and Sashiko were very impressive. A lot of her work tended towards the modern even before that became popular. We found Scarlett’s work very innovative, and she gave an informative and interesting talk.

Overall, an hour well spent – Thank you Scarlett!

Trent Valley Quilters Guild of Brighton, Ontario, Canada 

"Scarlett Rose recently gave a zoom presentation “Celtic Quilts Around the World” to our quilt guild, the Mount Vernon Chapter of Quilters Unlimited, on September 28th, 2021. She has developed a large network of master Celtic quilters from Canada, South America, Australia, South Africa, the United States, Italy, Japan and England showing their work. Each quilt is a master piece incorporating the Celtic knot with the culture of the country. Every quilt is museum quality and a feast to a quilter's eye.  What an inspiration and treat to view these beautiful quilts. Scarlett is very knowledgeable with a smooth presentation and answering questions during the presentation as well as after. I highly recommend her for your quilt guild programs."

Sharon McAuliffe
MVQU Vice President

Here's more testimonials, followed by a list of guilds and conventions:

“Our guild recently hosted our first virtual speaker, Scarlett Rose. The Nov. 18th 2020 lecture she presented was ‘Quilts + Genealogy = Family Stories.’ What a fantastic lecture! Who knew so much family history can be found in a quilt! Her presentation consisted of a PowerPoint presentation and a live portion. The PowerPoint portion was well prepared. All of her pictures were clear, vibrant and in focus. Not only did she share full quilts, but also up close detail of quilt blocks as well. She managed to capture detail in all of her photos. If you have members that share an interest in old quilts as well as family research and documentation, I would highly recommend this lecture! Not only did she totally draw us into the past, she inspired many of us to start documenting our own family histories through the use of quilts for generations to come!”

"Our guild, Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild in Lakeport, California, recently invited Scarlett to come to our guild in light of our upcoming 2019 County Fair, and our own Falling Leaves Quilt Show. Topic: The Judging Process from Both Sides: Competitor and Judge. Fifty-two members came to hear her talk, and they were not disappointed! Scarlett had their undivided attention from the start, and she held it for over an hour. While reinforcing much of what some of them already knew (points, bindings, corners, straight lines, quilting stops/starts, etc), she illustrated her statements with samples (hers and ours) and answered all questions that arose. She then phased into what she, as a judge, had to consider when making her various decisions, again, with illustrations, and answers for questions. As far as programs go, hers was truly instructional AND entertaining. The timing was perfect, because it gave our members valuable pointers to incorporate in the bindings that they were putting on their entries! I've served as Program Chairman for 5 times, and Scarlett gets an A+, in my opinion."

Jane Alameda, Program Chairman of the Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild, Lakeport, California


"If any one is looking for a fantastic judge for a show, Scarlett is one of the best that I have ever worked with. She helped judge at the Tampa TAS show and I had the pleasure of working with her. I ran the judging room for our local Guild for 18 years and Scarlett excells. All of the judges that I worked with over the years were good but some stand out as excellent. Scarlett is one of the excellent."

Geneva Davis, member of the Creative Quilters of Citrus County, Florida, the West Pasco Quilters Guild and the Heart in Hand Chapter of TAS in Crystal River, Florida. Geneva is a charter member of TAS and Heart in Hand is the oldest TAS chapter in Florida.


"Scarlett Rose taught a class entitled Celtic Style Applique for our Ct Piecemakers Quilt Guild on November 18th and 19th, 2008. As a lecturer, Scarlett Rose is both entertaining and educational. She is an outstanding teacher who not only knows her craft but has the rare ability to teach it effectively to others.  She was both patient and encouraging, working one-on-one with students who were struggling, and encouraging others to take their designs even a step further. 

The guild was most pleased with the two-day class.  Everyone felt they had come away with something—for some it was learning and being able to practice a new technique; for others it meant completing a gorgeous block to show at our next guild’s “show and tell.” As a person, Scarlett Rose is delightful.  She made a wonderful companion for the few days she was here, a considerate house guest, and a warm and friendly teacher.  I would highly recommend her as a teacher and as a person."

JoMarie Coster, Program Co-Chair of the Connecticut Piecemakers of Trumbull, CT


"It gives me great joy to write these special notes about Scarlett. She is a very delightful person. She is very willing to share her knowledge, skill and talent. Her teaching approach is so positive that no one can ever feel timid about wanting to learn what she is so wonderful about sharing. Her smile is not only seen at all times, but can be felt in her happiness in working with each person in her workshop. She has a wonderful ability to make each and every participant feel important and appreciated. I personally enjoyed sharing quiet time with her in my home sharing ideas, thoughts and many great laughs! Scarlett is definitely welcome to return not only to my home, but to join our Guild activities again."

Laurel Doll, Program Coordinator

"The Surprise Valley Quilters Guild is a very small guild in Northern California. In 2003 we enlisted the help of Scarlett as a judge for our fair which is held in August in Cedarville, California. She was very accommodating, not only judging the quilting division of the fair, but allowing open judging for anyone who was interested. Those of us who came learned so much from her. We were able to utilize her again in 2004. After a two year break, we enlisted her halp again in 2007 and 2008. Our fair averages between 70 and 80 quilts. We highly recommend Scarlett and look forward to having her come back in the future."

Susan Jost, President
Surprise Valley Quilters of Cedarville, CA

Scarlett Rose taught several Celtic applique classes at "Bee" College held by Brother Sewing Machine in Nagoya, Japan. Her classes were easy to follow for everyone and she was very kind and helpful. All the students learned a lot and were satisfied at the end of her classes even though they learned through an interpreter.
