Where has Scarlett taught and lectured? Here's some testimonials, followed by a list of guilds and conventions:
"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
Pinnacle Quilters of San Benito County, San Juan Bautista/Hollister, CA
"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."
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.
