      Frustrated by your current scrap storage but aren’t sure how to create a workable system to efficiently categorize and store them.

      Struggling to find ways to effectively utilize your fabric scraps with projects that align with your quilting skills and interests.

      There has got to be a better way!

        What if there was a way to organize, store, and use up fabric scraps that fits seamlessly with the way you like to quilt?

        Imagine how it would feel to...

        Step into your space and be greeted by a well-organized and inspiring collection of fabric scraps.

        Confidently mix and match colors for both scrappy and coordinated projects.

        This is exactly what you'll experience at the

        No more rummaging through overflowing storage bins or feeling overwhelmed by the chaos. It’s time to create an efficient scrap system that works for you.

          Meet your host ... Hello, I'm Nicki!

          When I took in several bags of fabric remnants from friends who were decluttering their stashes, my sewing and quilting scraps multiplied overnight. I couldn’t bring myself to throw anything away, and I quickly realized the scrap management system I had been using would no longer work. My sewing space was crowded with unorganized scrap bags, and I knew I needed a different approach.

          Through research, personal reflection, and a whole lot of testing and tweaking I developed a scrap storage and organization system that allows me to utilize my scraps in such a way that fits seamlessly into my own sewing process. Repurposing my scraps has also led to many new exciting quilting and sewing projects along the way.

          That's exactly what I want for you and why I'm hosting this online event.

          Let me help you discover a scrap management system that works for you and introduce an inspiring number of scrap projects so you no longer feel uncertain, disorganized, and burdened by the weight of your exploding scrap pile.

          Join me and 20 quilting experts for a one-of-a-kind event that will help you take control of your fabric scraps.

          I can't wait to see you there!

            Meet the Teachers

              The summit officially kicks off on August 15 but you don’t need to wait until then to start learning! In the email you receive right after you register,  you’ll get immediate access to value-packed videos from all the teachers as they share scrap tips and tools with you. These short videos will help motivate you to jump start your scrap organization before the first day of classes.

              Private community

              Upgrade for a VIP experience

              Upgrade your free ticket and get the Scrap Success Bundle!

              This includes additional classes, patterns, and resources from the teachers and access to several live events after the summit to keep your momentum going. Also, you won’t need to watch all 27 classes in 4 days. With the Bundle you’ll have extended access to ALL the classes and videos so you can take your time learning the techniques and making the projects.

              You’ll get all the Bundle details (and a special price offer) after registering for the free event!

                The only event for quilters focused exclusively on helping you take control of your exploding scrap stash.

                You don’t need another event highlighting new quilting projects that are just going to add MORE to your expanding pile of fabric leftovers.

                I know you care about conserving resources and reducing waste, and I want to help you unleash your creativity while making the most of your scrap stash and reducing its volume.

                Sure, you can quickly search online for ways to use scraps, but the Conquer Your Fabric Scrap Summit is so much more than scrap-busting projects.

                This summit dives deep into guiding you to create a workable plan of action for your scraps. I’m talking about:

                • building a collection of scrap-friendly patterns, projects, and techniques 
                • learning ways to organize and manage your fabric scraps
                • eliminating obstacles that may be getting in your way of using scraps 
                • increasing your confidence with mixing colors and fabrics

                Here's what some past attendees had to say!

                The summit was beautifully organized with a great variety of approaches to using scraps. I was actually quite impressed and would definitely join next year and buy the bundle 😊

                ~Suzanne

                This was a fabulous summit and every style of how to quilt and use scraps was explored. The presenters were clear and had great ideas and inspiration. The obvious joy the presenters have in their personal quilt journeys was wonderful to see and hearing about their creative journeys was fun and exciting. So grateful for the summit and finding these like minded folks.

                ~Lori F.

                A worldwide gathering of inspirational speakers. All brought something different to the table, and gave many ideas for dealing with/managing/using scraps. I’ll be back for the next summit! Thanks Nicki for setting this up.

                ~MG

                The Summit was the impetus for me to rethink the scraps and fabrics in my stash. It gave me concrete steps to take to organize my scraps and terrific ideas for how to turn them into quilted treasures.

                ~Whitney B.

                Every single day I had multiple ideas I took away from this summit. Each speaker was interesting and I learned so much! I woke up every morning looking forward to the classes for the day. I put this program ahead of my chores, which is the highest praise I can give any activity, (normally my “me time” comes at the end of the day). Thank you for producing this wonderful program.

                ~Jodi G.

                  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

                  Conquer Your Fabric Scraps Summit is all about helping quilters discover practical tips and techniques to organize and store fabric remnants as well as creative ways to repurpose scraps of all sizes. Summit classes cover:

                  • Creative and practical ways to utilize fabric scraps in new projects.
                  • Establishing an organized system for storing and categorizing fabric scraps.
                  • Mixing colors and fabrics to achieve the look you want.
                  • Innovative ways to incorporate fabric scraps into quilting designs.
                  • Getting out of your own way and having fun with your scraps.
                  • Gaining confidence in decision-making regarding which fabric scraps to keep and which to discard.
                  • Feeling motivated and excited about working with fabric scraps.

                  This 2024 Conquer Your Fabric Scraps summit is for you if:

                  • You are a quilter or quilting is ONE of your sewing interests.
                  • You want creative ideas for using scraps.
                  • You’re looking for inspiration on how to organize your scraps.
                  • You want to build confidence in mixing and matching colors.
                  • Your scrap bins are overflowing and you’re struggling with what to do with all your project leftovers.
                  • You have been unable to sew your way out of feeling overrun with fabric scraps.

                  If you are new to quilting and your scrap pile is currently small and manageable this event is for you, too. (Because it doesn’t take too long before those scraps get out of control.)

                  If you ONLY sew clothes, this summit is probably not for you. All the teachers are quilting experts, and there are no classes that focus on using or managing scraps from garment construction. However, not all the classes are about quilting. There are a few classes on non-quilting techniques and home decor projects, one class on making things to wear from your scraps and several classes on managing your mindset (being creative, overcoming obstacles, perfectionism, and being an awesome beginner).

                  The free summit runs from August 15 – 18, 2024. The 27 classes are spread out over 4 days. Each day a new set of pre-recorded classes will be released at 9:00 am CDT (central daylight time). The free classes will be available to watch for 48 hours.

                  But you don’t have to wait until August 15 to start learning. Once you register, you’ll get immediate access to 21 Tips and Tools for Scraps videos. In these short, value-packed videos (5 minutes or less), each teacher shares her favorite scrap organization methods, books, and tools with you so you can start conquering your fabric scraps. In addition, you’ll also be able to join our private Facebook community and join in on the fun right away!

                  Yes, you will. No matter what time zone you are in, you have 48 hours to watch the free classes. You just need to convert the start time to your time zone. There are many online tools to help you do that.

                  Classes will be happening August 15 – 18, 2024. A new set of classes will be released at 9:00 am CDT (central daylight time) which means classes will overlap. After registering, you will get a welcome email that includes a schedule of the classes. You can use this to help you plan for the classes you want to watch.

                  Note: The Tips and Tools for Scraps videos will be available for you to watch as soon as you register until the last day of the summit.

                   

                  All the free classes will be available through my website, The Ruffled Purse. After you register, you’ll get an email that has a link to the summit home page. Here you’ll find everything you need to participate in the summit. In addition, you’ll receive an email each day of the event with links to that day’s classes.

                  The presentations are pre-recorded, and available for 48 hours with your free ticket. So I encourage you to watch the teachers you don’t want to miss first! 

                  However, if you’re not able to attend all of the classes that interest you, after you register for the free ticket, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to the Scrap Success Bundle for extended access, premium bonuses from the teachers, and more!

                  Your free ticket includes 48-hour access to each of the classes. If you need more time, you can always upgrade your ticket to the Scrap Success Bundle after registering, which will give you extended access to the classes along with premium bonuses from the teachers and more! 

                  To avoid tech glitches and give you the best possible experience during the free summit, all teacher videos and classes are pre-recorded. The Tips and Tools videos are available as soon as you register for the free event. The classes will be released daily at a scheduled time (9:00am CDT) during the summit.

                  All summit attendees are invited to join the private Conquer Your Fabric Scraps Hangout FB group for community and support before and during the week of the summit. Here you can ask questions about the classes, talk about scraps in general, connect with teachers, chat with me (Nicki the summit host), and share photos of your scrap projects.

                  There will be live events for attendees who upgrade to the Scrap Success Bundle. These will be hosted through Zoom and scheduled out through the end of September. These live events are designed to keep the momentum from the summit going after it’s over.

                   

                  Yes. All classes have closed captioning as an option. You will have the ability to turn them off or on.

                  They are auto-generated so there may be some spelling errors.

                  No. When you register, you’ll be added to The Ruffled Purse email list so I can send you updates for the event and links to each day’s presentations. After the summit is over, you’ll have the option to continue to hear from me (Nicki), but you can unsubscribe at any time. 

                  Each of the teachers will have free resources available that you can access by providing an email address, but the teachers will not get your email address unless you choose to give it to them specifically. That way, you only hear from the people you really love and don’t have to worry about getting added to 20 email lists that you’re not interested in.

                  You can unsubscribe from any teachers’ email list at any time.

                  You can learn more in our Privacy Policy.

                  If you still have questions, I encourage you to go ahead and sign up. Your questions will likely be answered during the event or in the Facebook community, which you’ll be able to join right away after you register for the free event. 

                  However, if you want to ask a question before registering, feel free to send me an email at nicki@theruffledpurse.com.
