Minimum billing requirements are based on the amount of travel time required from my base in Cincinnati, OH.
Local (within a 1.5 hour drive one way) - no minimum
Under 3 hours of air travel - $1600 (lecture + 1-day workshop) or $1800 (two 1-day workshops or one 2-day workshop)
Over 3 hours of air travel - $2500 (lecture + two 1-day workshops or one 2-day workshop)
Hosts provides or reimburses
Roundtrip air fare (non-stop whenever possible) + baggage fees from CVG to your location ($200-$400)
airport shuttle or overnight parking whichever is less to CVG (approx $30-$50)
hotel lodging or air b&b ensuite (you book this, please look up local rates)
meals on program dates (host provides or $50 per diem)
With prior approval, I will consider being hosted in someone's home if all of these requirements can be met --guest quarters include comfortable bed in clutter free room, ensuite bathroom, wireless internet, smoke and pet odor free, my privacy and downtime ensured by host.
For cross country and international bookings, I will work with you to set up a regional tour with other shops or guilds in cities nearby. In that case all transportation costs would be split equally between hosts.
I use my own contract and require a $200 non-refundable contract fee at the time of signing that will be deducted from the program fee. After receiving a signed contract I will provide all publicity materials and images, and workshop supply lists.
For hosts who want to sell copies of The Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters to offset the cost of my visit and/or as a benefit to their members, I can arrange for special event wholesale pricing ($13.25/copy) and free shipping and return shipping of unsold books directly through Abrams, my publisher. This option is not available for local hosts. I will bring copies to sell for my own profit when traveling to an event by car.
Special rates for multi-day regional, national and international festivals and conferences are negotiable. Please contact me with a proposal.
