About Our Shop
As a child I was always intrigued by colors and nature. I liked to draw whenever I could, and tried to find a way to use these drawings to make art. Soon I discovered fabric, and fell in love with the textures, the prints and the endless possibilities to use them for different projects.
Starting my business at a very young age, I worked for shops and customers on commission, learning every technique I could think of. Soon I discovered quilting and I fell in love again!
I opened my quiltshop in 1990 and it grew for over 21 years. I’ve designed my own quilts, giving classes and found out there was a need for a different approach. When the Judy Niemeyer patterns were available in the Netherlands, I began to make those quilts, and my customers loved them.
After closing my shop at the end of 2011, I didn’t retire, but worked with my own designs, making landscape quilts for customers, and for the Open European Championships, winning ribbons.
When Ada Honders from Patchwork Promotions invited me to come with her to Montana to take classes with Judy Niemeyer, in order to start an European network, I immediately said YES! This was something I always wanted to do. We went to Montana on several occasions, and completed our certification.
Now we are building the Judy Niemeyer/Quiltworx network in Europe, giving classes at shows and with shops. People are very enthusiastic, and love to sign up for workshops and Masterclasses, making wonderful projects.
I am very excited about teaching classes, and hope to meet you soon at one of my workshops or Masterclasses.
