Specific requirements for each class and lecture can be found at the bottom of each class and lecture summary.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED FOR LECTURES

I will be showing actual quilts and pieces that I have created. I will need 2 tables in the front of the room for display of work. If a quilt stand is available for hanging quilts, that can be used for larger pieces. Most of my quilts are fairly small, so this is optional. Public address system for audiences of more than fifty people.

Travel arrangements will be made by Sue Andrus or the travel agent of the conference / guild, with Sue's agreement on dates of travel, routes, airline etc.


In order to secure the most economical air transportation, Sue must be provided with all necessary information about exact dates and times of workshops and other events at least 90 days prior to the first scheduled event on the trip which includes your events. Please keep in mind that you may not be the first group on her itinerary, and you may be required to provide this information more than 90 days prior to your events. If your failure to provide this information results in increased travel expenses, your group will be solely responsible for paying the difference in cost.


EXPENSES: All travel expenses will be borne by the guild / conference. These include:

Transportation:













LODGING provided by your group will be at:

Name of hotel/motel or guild member:


Street address::


City and Zip Code:


Phone:


Reservation #:


AGREEMENT OF PROGRAM CHAIR/CONFERENCE DIRECTOR TO DISTRIBUTE THIS INFORMATION: The program chairperson understands that she may not be the person doing airport pickups, preparing meals, and setting up class and lecture rooms. She may also have passed on the office of program chair to someone else before Sue's visit. Therefore, the program chairperson agrees to pass on the information contained in this Letter of Agreement to all of the group members, hostesses and caterers, etc. in charge of these activities.


Cancellations:
The Guild may cancel a workshop due to insufficient enrollment at any time prior to the purchase of non- refundable airline tickets, or any other expenses incurred by Sue Andrus. If a workshop is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, Sue Andrus must be notified before she has incurred any expenses. If a workshop is canceled after the purchase of airline tickets, the guild will be responsible of paying for the tickets. If a workshop is canceled, and coming to your group for fewer workshops or lectures than originally agreed upon in this contract will cause economic hardship for Sue Andrus, she reserves the right to cancel the remainder of the contracted workshops / lectures. If your workshop cancels in the middle of a multi-venue tour, your group will be responsible for covering Sue's daily minimum fee of $300.00. If an engagement is canceled while I am en route or at the engagement location, the sponsor will be responsible for all contracted fees. If I am unable to fulfill this contract due to illness, injury, or serious family emergency all previously incurred expenses are my responsibility.


Sharing Expenses: When expenses are shared by several groups, expenses will be split for groups having similar programs. If groups sharing expenses will have disproportionately more or disproportionately less events than other groups, expenses will be apportioned fairly. Each group will be charged a percentage of total airfare, parking, tolls, and mileage, as well as meals, and lodging on rest and travel days. Individual groups will be responsible for lodging and meals on the days I am working for them. In order to simplify accounting, a $25.00 per diem will be assessed for meals on days when they are not provided by your group.


A signed copy of this letter of understanding or the must be returned to Sue Andrus before a firm commitment can be made.

If your group would like to reserve future dates, but has not yet booked a venue or made decisions on which workshops to schedule, a copy of this agreement may be used to reserve the time in Sue's schedule. A completed copy of this contract must subsequently be forwarded at a later date and at least 60 days before the scheduled workshops/lectures. (90 days for international venues) Contracts that have not arrived by 60 days prior to the scheduled dates are subject to cancellation by Sue. Airline tickets will not be purchased until a contract is completed.

Images from the workshop pages on Sue's website may be used in brochures and other publicity materials to promote her workshops and lectures.













The Guild/Conference will also provide the name of a second person in your organization who can be contacted in the event that the organizer/program chair is not available.
