Judy Niemeyer Workshop

November 2014 I (Kim) undertook training with Judy Niemeyer from Quiltworx to become a certified quilt shop. It was AMAZING!!! Judy and her husband Del where the loveliest people and Judy was a very patient and fantastic teacher. Joanne Wearing, the very first Certified Instructor for Australia, was also there helping Judy and Del out and was a great support.

So what does a certified shop mean?
Well it means that a Certified Shop has exclusive selling and teaching rights over certain Patterns put out by Quiltworx. It also means we are supported by Judy Niemeyer and her team from The team at Quiltworx have a commitment to TEACH people the art of paper piecing and to develop this process for application to a world of amazing quilt patterns in an effort to bring Traditional designs into a modern world through the use of tools, technology and innovation.
I am very excited about the paper piecing technique that Judy Niemeyer uses and am very passionate about teaching. So February 18th will be the first of many classes I will be teaching and we are starting with a beginners table runner from the Leaf Series ONE

This beautiful quilt below is the new Technique of the Month (TOM) by Quiltworx and it is called "Paradise in Blooms "

These classes will start on February 28th and will be a series of classes once a month. Kits will be available for this extraordinary quilt.

Paper Piecing is fun and rewarding when you do it the QUILTWORX way

Being very organized is the key, and the right tools it makes this amazing technique all the more enjoyable.

I can't wait to kick off teaching with the new skills I have learned and look forward to seeing everyone's creations.

Happy Stitching! Kimz Team x
