RECEIVING YOUR PATTERN: A pattern will be sent in advance on by the end of April, which will give you a few weeks to familiarize yourself with everything and complete the final preparation prior to the event. You’ll need to cut your own kit based on the strip size suggested in the unit charts in each pattern booklet, and label your pattern prior to the workshop with the fabric references. This way, you will be prepared to begin working on your project at the same stage as the rest of the students.
OPTION 2: Select one of the Snowfall Mixer kits, exclusive to this event! There are 5 options that have been created for you to choose from. You will have a Quiltster account for six months (from sign up) as part of your event and will need to use it to purchase your project if you choose one of these options.
We have not finalized all kit pricing at this time, but to give you an idea, your kit will include the following:
A pattern, ranging from $32.50 to $80, depending on the size and number of papers required.
A kit with fabrics included, pre-cut for you to the strip size, (Small patterns will range from $175, with larger designs being as much as $400).
A 17% kit cutting fee will be included so the shop and Quiltworx staff can prepare your kit for the workshop.
OPTION 3: Create your own completely customized quilt, where you pick the combination of blocks for your quilt and your favorite fabric collections from the list shown below! If you haven’t received it already, any day (or upon sign-up!) you’ll receive a 6 month subscription to Quiltster, allowing you the opportunity to mix and match blocks and fabrics in 5 different quilt sizes to achieve your perfectly unique quilt! You may use Quiltster, or contact Judel Niemeyer for an additional design fee ($25/design) to help you create your perfect quilt.
All kits will be based on a yardage price of $13.99 per yard, regular price, however, kits purchased for this event will be discounted at 10%!
