Quiltworx University - MISA 2021 - Ready, Set, Plan Your Projects!

Hello everyone! We’re beyond excited about this upcoming retreat, and the beautiful design options Judy and Brad have created especially for you! We’re pleased to unveil your exclusive project, the Snowfall Mixer which can be purchased for this workshop through Quiltster, and will be supplied by our partner shop at this event, Pine Needle Quilt and Sew.

PLAN YOUR PROJECT!

There are three options for selecting the pattern and your fabrics:

OPTION 1:  Purchase a Christmas Cactus pattern (new in June 2021, but available to your before the retreat!) for $70.50, and choose your own fabrics from your stash or as desired. To purchase just the pattern so you can work with your own fabrics in your stash, open Quiltster, click on the Quiltworx University Madeline Island link (at the top or bottom of your My Projects page depending on your browser) and choose the blank Christmas Cactus template, then click Add to Cart. You can also call Quiltworx at 406-393-2646 and we will process an order over the telephone.

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%! If you are interested in backing and binding, you will have the option to purchase this at the time of kit purchase. Backing and binding purchased with the kit will be discounted 25%. All sales will be subject to applicable sales tax in Minnesota. A separate email will be coming by April 15th, or sooner, with information on ordering, so have fun designing in the meantime and stay tuned for more information on kit purchases. Kit ordering must be completed no later than May 10th, 2021.

Choose your own fabrics and prepare your own kit using the blocks shown here. Papers will be sent at the end of April and some preliminary yardage and kitting information will be provided once you order your design through Quiltster. Ordering will open by April 15th.  If you would like a kit, you can also just click on the pre-colored template in Quiltster (image below), and order a kit in the colorway shown. The kit will be prepared for you and brought to the event.

Christmas Cactus Kit

Snowfall Mixer Kits

If choosing blocks and fabrics seems overwhelming, we’re also offering the following exclusive fabric kits only available to event attendees.

If you select this option, we’ll cut the kit, and prepare it for the class. We’ll bring the kits to the workshop for you so there is no preparation needed! 

To order these options, you’ll need to find the one you want in Quiltster (click on Quilt Planner from your Dashboard, then scroll down to the bottom and click the blue Enter button next to Quiltworx University: Madeline Island 2020 to get started). Once you have opened the desired project (by clicking Customize) and given it a name, save it to your account.

When kits are ready to be purchased, you can click the Add to Cart button and it will walk you through the order submission process. All you need to do from there is show up at the event!

Create your own completely customized quilt, by selecting a quilt size and blocks for each section of the quilt shown below along with new fabrics from over 17 collections!

There are two ways to do this:

  1. Use Quiltster!  Prior to this event, you’ll receive a 6 month subscription to Quiltster (as part of the fee for attending the event), allowing you the opportunity to mix and match blocks and fabrics in 5 different quilt sizes and 5 different layouts to achieve your perfectly unique quilt!  
  2. We’ll Design it With You!  For an additional design fee you can work one on one with Judel Niemeyer as she uses Quiltster to mix and match blocks and fabrics to create your one of a kind quilt. You’ll have final approval before your quilt is kitted.

Whether you use Quiltster on your own, or have us do it, your finalized quilt kit will be prepared for you and brought to the event for you to complete! No preparation on your end will be needed!

 


BLOCK AND FABRIC OPTIONS

Your options for blocks and fabrics are shown below. If you have any questions about how to use Quiltster, we strongly encourage you to visit the Quiltster Youtube Channel and watch some tutorials before you get started.

Here’s a valuable video (not directly related to this project, but related to the Quiltworx University Planning process) which gives you a great walk-through of how the program works. While the video below is in an older version of Quiltster that looks slightly different than yours, once you click into the Quilt Editor, the process works the same. Click the image below to watch the tutorial.

Madeline Island School of the Arts - Quiltworx is visiting two locations in 2021. Madeline Island and Tucson Campuses
 

We are very excited to be returning to both the Madeline Island and Tucson campus locations in 2021.

During these Quiltworx University events, you’ll have the unique opportunity to work with Judy and her daughter Judel along with a team of Certified Instructors. You’ll also design a unique quilt (or choose from some already designed projects) using Quiltster. The projects will be cut and prepared for you to be ready at the start of the workshop by a Quiltworx Certified Shop. There will be select options where you can choose to work with your own fabric stash as well, if desired.  

Plan to attend trunk shows, special technique demonstrations and presentations that showcase the latest Quiltworx tips and tricks–including the future of Quiltster, Judy’s answer to fabric auditioning and project planning for the quilting community. 

You’ll leave the workshop with great skills and new confidence in quilting. Not to mention some brand new friends and an incredible creative experience.

Secure your spot with Judy as soon as possible. We anticipate a great turnout for these one-of-a-kind Quiltworx University events at these two fantastic venues.
