A New Style Of Classes At Road 2015

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Road to California 2015 – 20th Anniversary Show

will have the familiar feel of hands on classes along with lectures where experts share their knowledge on products and techniques.

But Road 2015 will also be offering a new, exciting style of classes featuring remarkable quilt makers, Web-TV stars, and authors, Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson

These new Lecture-Demo Classes will be held Friday and Saturday in the state of art lecture hall at the Radisson Hotel.  The lecture hall is perfect for this type of class as it features tiered seating with a large projector screen so attendees can see the minutest detail from the comfort of their seat. Ricky says, “I promise this educational event for quilters is not like any other quilting experience.”

Why is Road offering these new types of classes? Carolyn Reese says, “I have attended Ricky and Alex’s Super Seminar in the past. When I left their seminar, my brain was saturated with ideas and techniques and not a single UFO in sight. These lectures are presented in the same style.”

What can attendees expect in these Lecture-Demo classes?

  • Great lecture style master classes.
  • Lessons are suited for experienced, novice, traditional, and contemporary quilters.
  • Learn simple, efficient techniques and explore the principles for successful original designs.
  • There is no sewing, there is no supply list and you won’t be going home with a UFO
  • The classes are loaded with projects that will allow you to try the various techniques when you get back to your sewing studio. Prepare to have your head spinning with excitement!

Ricky Tims will be teaching morning classes from 9:30 – 12:30, 5018R Improvisational Patchwork on FridayRicky Tims Improvisational Patchwork

and 6017R Kool Kaleidoscope and Convergence Quilts on Saturday.Ricky Tims Kaleidoscope and Convergence Quilts

Alex Anderson will be teaching afternoon classes from 1:00 – 4:00, 5019R Beautifully Quilted & Fabric A – Z on FridayAlex Anderson Beautifully Quilted

and 6018R Scrap Crazy & Studio Dream Tours on Saturday.Alex Anderson Scrap Crazy

There is a $60 supply fee for each class that includes a full color syllabus with the projects and lecture information.

We hope you are as excited as we are to be offering these new style classes.

Registering For Classes

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Class registration is right around the corner. While the webmaster is moving as fast as she can on getting our 2015 classes online, we thought we should give you all a crash course in our online registration system. 

First, make sure your internet browser plays nicely with others. Our system does not work well with Internet Explorer and some versions of Mozilla Firefox. The most recently updated Google Chrome, and Apple Safari play really nice with others, and have been tested and verified to work on our system. Unfortunately, we have not been able to optimize our website for touch devices (including iPads & iPhones.) 

On the same note, you should make sure prior to online registration that you have installed updates for your internet browser. This is very important to your own personal internet security and will enhance your experience with our online registration program. There is a great how-to article on updating your internet browser on the web that you can find here  

Now that we are done with computer housekeeping, lets move onto the Second Step, logging on. Open that fancy new updated internet browser and navigate to: https://online.roadtocalifornia.com. You should see a photo of our beautiful San Gabriel Mountains kissed with snow and the Road to California logo.  If you remember your email address and password from last year, enter it now and skip ahead.Blog 1

If you don’t remember your password, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Click on Forgot Password. A yellow box should appear (See Photo Below). Fill out all the required information and click change password. Hint: Your new password needs to be 8 characters long and include a capital letter and a number. Blog 2

If you don’t remember your email address, send us an email to: info@roadtocalifornia.com. We will be happy to assist you with your online account. In your email, please include your name, email address and mailing address. We will use that information to find your account and email you a new password. 

If you have not taken a class at Road before, click on the blue create an account link. The following page should appear. Fill out all required fields and click create. Again, your password needs to be 8 characters long and include a capital letter and a number.Blog 3You should now be logged in! On July 11 at 8 AM PDT you can move your mouse to ROAD2015 and click on Register! 

Once you’ve clicked on Register, you will see the following screen. Make sure if you wish to purchase cancellation insurance, you drag over the Cancellation Insurance selection. Simply Click, Drag into your calendar and Release when the calendar turns red. Blog 5

Change the drop down from Miscellaneous Items to the date of the class you wish to register for. Here we have chosen Friday, and want to take Dancing Dots with Nancy Mahoney.Blog 6

Simply Click down on Dancing Dots and Drag the Dancing Dots block over to the calendar (the calendar will turn red) and Release.Blog 7 

Let’s say you also want to take a Sunday class (gotta leave Thursday and Saturday to do some serious shopping in the vendor mall). Being a big fan of stars, you want to take Sparkle Star with Donna Thomas.Blog 8

Click down on Sparkle Star, Drag it over to the calendar and Release. The calendar turns red when you have dragged the class to the proper location. Release when the calendar is red to enroll. Blog 9

What if you change your mind and instead of taking a Friday class, you’d rather take a multi-day class? To remove the Friday class, simply Click on the class under Events/Classes to be Purchased, Drag it out of the calendar and Release.Blog 10 

Multi-Day classes are sorted by the first day they begin. For example, you would love to take a class with Rob Appell, and he happens to be teaching a Three Day Seascape/Landscape Extravaganza starting on Monday! Click on class 1302R, Drag it into the calendar, and Release when the calendar turns red! Blog 11

Once you’ve verified that you’ve got all your classes and cancellation insurance (you can’t add on cancellation insurance after you click register), it’s time to pay and check out! Fill out your credit card information, and verify the contact information we have on file. Once your registration is final, our cancellation policy takes effect, so make sure to read it carefully when classes are posted online! Blog 12

Click Register, and you will be redirected to a page with a confirmation of your registration. You will also receive an email with this information confirming your class enrollment. Take note of the cancellation policy found on the bottom of your confirmation. We will not be granting exceptions for cancellation hardships this year. Please take special care to remember the dates for cancellation. 

That’s it! Class information will be posted by July 1!  Class registration begins on July 13, 2014 at 8 AM PDT! We can’t wait to see you in January!
