Quiltworx University - Shipshewana Sept. 2019

Posted April 17, 2019

Hello everyone! We’re beyond excited about this upcoming retreat, and the beautiful design options we’ve developed especially for you! Check them out below and start planning your project today!

We’re excited to present Courtyard Fountain Mixer which can be purchased for this workshop from Yoder Department Store and The Cotton Corner.  

 

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

OPTION 1:  Purchase an Irish Thistle (coming July 2019) pattern and choose your own fabrics from your stash or as desired.

At 57” x 57”, you will be able to add C and D Borders of your choice at that time to increase the size of the project if desired. The price of each border option is separate and depends on which ones you choose. The borders will need to be added in Quiltster. Choose the Irish Thistle Queen template to get started planning, but please understand you will only be able to use fabrics in the event for now. Choose fabrics close to yours to play with the quilt. Upon publication, you will be able to add your own fabrics as desired.

Please prepare your kit by cutting the strips up to the point where you would begin cutting with a Template Layout Sheet (you do not need to cut apart the layout sheets prior to class). This way, you will be prepared to begin working on your project at the steps where the rest of the students will begin. We have prepared one kit options that will be available for purchase as well, from Quilter’s Market if you require a kit!

OPTION 2: Select one of the Courtyard Fountain Mixer kits, exclusive to this event!  There are 17 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 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 3 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.

Again, we have not finalized kit pricing at this time, but the range will be similar to that noted above and depend on the selection of blocks and fabrics for your pattern.

All kits will be based on a yardage price of $12.99 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 the state of Indiana. Kit orders will not be placed until after May 15th when we finalize yardage, so have fun designing in the meantime and stay tuned for more information on kit purchases.

Irish Thistle Pattern

Purchase this pattern and choose your own fabrics.

Official Kit

This is the official kits for Irish Thistle. If you would like one, it will be shipped in advance of the program in order to allow you time to prepare your kits in advance. If you would like your kit prepared for you, a 10% kit cutting fee will be applied and you can pick up your kit at the event.

Courtyard Fountain 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 will bring the kits to the workshop for you so there is no preparation needed! 

To order these options, you will need to find the one you want in Quiltster (Click on Quiltworx University: Shipshewana 2019 to get started). Then, save it to your account. When kits are ready to be purchased (we will send an email with this announcement after May 15th), then you can click the Buy Now button and it will walk you through the order submittal 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 12 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 3 different quilt sizes 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 Quilter’s Market for you to complete! No preparation on your end will be needed!
