We are proud to announce the first Quiltworx University right here in Judy’s hometown of Kalispell, MT!
Quiltworx has rented the Snowline Acre’s building, which is a beautiful relocated and updated event center with giant cross beams, beautiful windows on every side, and room for everyone to spread out and quilt with mountain views in beautiful NW Montana.
Our Quiltworx University events are perfect for both beginning paper piecers and those with a full-on Judy addiction! Judy will be joined by four Quiltworx Instructors who will be teaching alongside her, Quiltworx staff will be on-site for all your Quiltworx needs, Judel Niemeyer will be designing quilts, and we will have a wonderful pop-up store full of all of Judy and Judel’s favorite fabric collections! There will be classes, demonstrations, nightly trunk shows of gorgeous quilts that will surely be inspirational. We will have on-site shopping, fun give-aways, show and tells from your fellow Quilters, Quiltster demonstrations, and more! The Snowline Acres building will be available from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day for those who want to sew late into the evening, or early before class. We have a maximum of 80 spots available, but they go quickly, so reserve your spot today!
For every Quiltworx University, we create an exclusive project, giving you the opportunity to create a completely unique quilt! You will be required to work on the class project, but will have the opportunity to work with a wide range of quilt sizes and blocks to mix and match and customize your project. We will offer 3 quilt sizes and you will use Quiltster to plan your project, place your order, and the kit will be cut and waiting for you to start class when you arrive. The kit cost is separate from the event cost. But, 6 month of Quiltster is included with your signup, so you will have plenty of time and access to the program to pick the perfect project for you!
For this Quiltworx University, we’ll be expanding the Congo Star Mixer Series, offering new block layouts (A wall size, the existing queen, and a King). Quiltworx University attendees will be the FIRST to create with them! Full project details will be released March of 2024. We are so excited to reveal all the fun surprises with fabric collections, block options, new techniques and more!
