I enjoyed the class today

I enjoyed the class today even though I wasn’t doing the actual Judy Niemeyer quilt that was being taught. My feedback is that I would like to have seen a little more of the actual stitching, especially doing the inside

Quitworx Class #5 and I still learned new tips!

Thank you for the marvelous Poinsettia class! This was my 5th Quiltworx retreat. I took the class to learn about Zoom. The added bonus was the several tips you gave us to make things a little

Shipshewana Spring 2025 – Quiltworx Technique of the Month Retreat

June 3, 2025 - June 8, 2025


Save your spot today!  In 2023 — we were over-filled.  I’m reducing the number this time so don’t miss your opportunity to visit Shipshewana in Late Spring 2025 to work on  your Quiltworx Technique of the Month Quilt!  We haven’t seen it yet — but you know you’ll want to make it!  Or bring any pattern you wish to sew!

We are adding an extra day this year — so we’ll be retreating from Tuesday, June 3 (start sewing at 10:00 AM) and we will sew until Sunday afternoon (4:00 PM).  THAT IS 6 FULL DAYS OF SEWING!!!   That week is also the week of the nearby Elkhart Quilt Show — so you can sneak away one day to take in the show if you wish!  It’s about a 20 minute drive.  Not to mention a visit to Yoder Department Store, The Cotton Corner, Lolly’s,  Essenhaus Quilt Shop, Caroline’s, Zincks and more!  And don’t forget your stop at JoJo’s Pretzels or Ben’s Pretzels!  Yummy is the word of the day!

As always — I’ll start the instruction on Zoom in February — and you can join me then and get started or wait until the retreat to get going.  The full Zoom Series is included with your retreat registration!  A $300+ value!

Once the pattern is announced — I’ll add the Zoom series independently as well as update all pricing.  You can choose RETREAT ONLY or ZOOM ONLY or you can purchase your pattern with your registration (I discount them 15% with registration!) for either the retreat or the Zoom Series.  Once the pattern is released — Certified Shops will be offering KITS — which can include fabric only or fabric with pattern – make sure you don’t purchase 2 patterns!   I can also help you custom design your own colorway using Quiltster if you want your own unique quilt.

Deposit will be refundable through January 31st, 2025.  Final fees will be announced once the pattern is released — but will be very comparable to past fees.  Reserve your hotel rooms independently at The Farmstead Inn or plan to stay at the nearby campground or check out some of the nearby VRBO / B&B options.  There are other hotels a little less pricey nearby as well.  You do NOT need to stay at the hotel to participate in the Retreat.

I hope you’ll consider joining me.  With the Zoom support added — this is a GREAT value — 5 days of sewing and the full Zoom Series (and my support from start to finish regardless of your timeline).

Reserve your spot today!
