Josephine has been an avid quilter for many years. Three friends gave her a quilt as a gift which introduced her to our wonderful world of quilting. After that she was hooked! She says her “first few quilts were examples of everything not to do when making a quilt.” Things have certainly gotten better since then!
She loves teaching and she also continues to take classes from other instructors, thus enabling her to stay current in the “how to” department and, of course, to incorporate additional information when teaching others.
After living in Southern California since she was born, Josephine and her husband decided to move to Utah where she continues her involvement in all aspects of quilting. In Utah she has served as an officer of the state guild for many years.
Having made more than 172, over 50 of them Quiltworx quilts in just the past 15 years, she was honored to be an Artist in Residence for Empty Spools Seminars at Asilomar. She exhibited 40 quilts at that time, including eight designs by Quiltworx.
Josephine has exceptional skills in all areas of quilting including design, piecing techniques, and border options. She has an excellent awareness of color theory including value and texture, and she thoroughly enjoys assisting her students in the color/fabric selection for their projects.
As an example of her talent, expertise, and joy of teaching, in just the past year she has taught numerous classes, and has exhibited some of her quilts in shows resulting in various ribbons, including first place at HMQS for her Bali Wedding Star and the Teachers’ Ribbon for Fire Island Hosta. In 2019 the UQSM Show in Sandy, Utah held an exhibit of her quilts.
Josephine will be teaching at EmptySpools Seminars in 2021, during Session 5, April 16-21.
Josephine says “Call me – I look forward to helping quilters at all levels to experience the joy of making a Judy Niemeyer designed quilt.”
