Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) presents
2016 Quiltworx University with Judy Niemeyer
As we get closer to the big event, we’ve been working diligently to organize some exciting pattern and kitting options for you to choose from in preparation for the retreat. With that said, we need some input from you to proceed.
We’re providing three options below for you to consider. Once you’ve had a chance to look through them all, we need you to email us with the option you’d like to choose including your choice of pattern and fabrics if applicable. We’ll provide you with an email template at the bottom of this post, which will consist of text you can copy and paste into an email informing us of your selections.
Please respond by Friday, June 17th!
There are three options for selecting the pattern and your fabrics.
OPTION 1: Purchase a Lakeshore Sunrise pattern.
OPTION 2: Select one of the Madeline Island Sunrise Kits, exclusive to this event! (3 to 5 kits are estimated to be available of each, and will be considered on a first come, first served basis!)
OPTION 3: Work with us on a completely customized quilt, where you pick the combination of blocks for your quilt and your favorite fabric collection from the list shown below! We’ll create something truly unique to you!
EXCITING NEWS! Judy will be in Chicago mid-July to help Quilters Quest prepare kits for this workshop!
Continue reading below for more information including photos, pricing, and links to yardage sheets for each option below.
Lakeshore Sunrise Pattern/Kits
Choose one of the following options:
The above quilts feature colorways created by Quiltworx from our newest fabric collections. Click on each quilt to go directly to a yardage chart for that design!
You’ll receive 10% off the fabrics and pattern from Quilter’s Quest.
If you purchase a kit for Lakeshore Sunrise, we will cut and ship to you mid to late July, and you will need to complete the cutting instructions before bringing it to the workshop.
Madeline Island Sunrise Kits
PRICING: $190 to $275 depending on color and block combination, including a $45 pattern and $15 kit preparation fee. Final cost will be provided before cutting. The costs below are based on estimated yardage calculations and may vary as final cutting templates are designed.
These kits are only available to attendees of this workshop! 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!
As we work out final yardage, we will let you know the final cost of the kit that you have selected before we prepare it.* These prices are based on a 10% discount on fabrics and pattern pieces as well!
Click the images below to view a larger Quiltster quilt mockup.
* Substitution Note: We anticipate we will be able to cut about 3 to 5 kits of each colorway shown here and these will be available on a first come first served basis. If we cannot provide you the colorway requested, we will contact you and verify you want to move to the second colorway you have selected.
We will do our best to accommodate the fabrics that are shown in the samples here and in the custom packages that you have selected. In the event that we have to substitute a fabric, we will make a judgment call on whether our substitution is close enough to work in the pattern or not. If a suitable substitute is not available, we will also move to your second choice kit and/or call and discuss.
Lakeshore Sunrise Mixer
PRICING: Individual pricing for each design option is listed below. Overall, we estimate between $225 to $300, depending on fabric selection and block layout. It includes a $45 pattern fee, a $25 design fee, and a $25 kit cutting fee. The design fee will allow you to see your quilt and request changes once the color has been laid out. The kit cutting fee reflects the cost for staff to prepare only one kit at a time, as opposed to cutting several at once.
Customize the Lakeshore Sunrise pattern by selecting options A, B, or C for each of the 3 Sections (Center, Ring, Border). You may also choose fabrics from 7 new fabric collections.
You will see your quilt before we finalize it, and have the chance to make changes before it is sent for kit cutting.
When you have approved your design, we will send you the final price and this will include a 10% discount on fabrics and pattern pieces. The kit will be prepared for you and brought to Madeline Island for you to complete! No preparation on your end will be needed!
Your Section choices are as follows (Click images to enlarge):
You may choose one or more collections for your quilt.
Wildflowers Collection – Timeless Treasures
Lakeshore Batiks – Timeless Treasures
Tonga Petals Batiks – Timeless Treasures
Copper Batiks – Timeless Treasures
Peacock Batiks – Timeless Treasures
Crystal Cove Collection – Island Batiks
ME & YOU Collection – Hoffman Fabrics

A Few Other Things to Remember
CAN I BUY MORE THAN ONE?
Once we have prepared all the kits for this workshop, we will be looking at the leftover fabrics and will determine how many additional kits of each colorway we can cut! We will share this information in advance of the workshop and if you would like one, we’ll bring it with us (we will even prep it, if you want!). We will also have some additional kits available at the workshop.
USE OUR MACHINES!
Don’t forget, Quilters Quest will be supplying new Bernina’s at the workshop for you to try out and purchase at a workshop discount! So, please keep this in mind if you are in the market for a new machine! Staff will be onsite to train you on the machine as well! What an opportunity!
SHOPPING AT MADELINE ISLAND:
Quilters Quest will have an on-site shop with notions, kits, patterns, and more! Find not only additional kits from what we’ve shown here, but others featuring new Quiltworx patterns and collections! Let them know if you are in the market for any kits of current projects or others! They’d love to bring them right to you at the event!
As a Certified Shop, they’re prepared to kit anything, including any of the Technique of the Month patterns! And, with delivery to your workshop you can pick Judy’s brain on questions, work on your own projects in the evening, and plan your next project right at the event with Quiltworx and Quilters Quest staff, along with our Certified Instructors and Judy!
Leave room in your suitcase, and they’ll help you fill it. They’re excited to be your exclusive Certified Shop for this workshop and can’t wait to provide service that only a Certified Shop can give. After spending a week in Montana with Judy learning the January 2017 Technique of the Month and working with Judel and Judy on your Madeline Island projects, they know your projects inside and out! We are confident you will not only love the opportunity to Be Unique, but you will be headed down a path of making your future Quiltworx designs your own.
See you at Madeline Island!
We’re excited to release several new patterns along with new fabric collections designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures, including Tonga Petals (an extension of the Wildflowers Collection), Peacock, and Copper.

Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) Retreat
After our whirlwind visit to Madeline Island in early March, Quiltworx and Quilters Quest are ready to share with you some more information about our once in a lifetime Quiltworx University event!
In this newsletter, you’ll find a supply list and updated schedule information based on what we learned on our trip to Madeline Island this Spring. We’ll talk about space, schedules, fun possibilities, and you’ll also learn a little bit more about your project. You’ll see a preview of fabric collections including two never before seen collections set to release in late summer! You can choose from any of them, or if you’ve chosen to make the Lakeshore Sunrise pattern, you may pick your own fabric to complete your design!
Retreat Supply List
You’ll need to bring the following items with you to class:
We’ve changed a few details in the schedule and would like you to review this information for arrival time, special programs and events, and check-out information!
Sunday, September 25th:
Note: The sewing studio has (2) rooms, each with (30) students. Every station has its own 4 foot table, and, each room is outfitted with (4) ironing and pressing stations. You will not be able to have an iron at your own personal station, but with your own personal table, you will have some space to complete much of your trimming needed during the paper piecing process in your quilt.
Don’t forget, you are invited to arrive to a station that has already been set up with a sewing machine (so there’s no need to haul your own). These complimentary machines are provided from Bernina and Quilters Quest, your exclusive Certified Shop on the island!
Staff from Quilters Quest will be on hand throughout the week to help you learn about your machines and will provide some excellent workshop specials for those of you that may be in the market for machines! The prices are so good, Judy is buying several of the machines for her training center and retreat house in Montana!
Saturday, October 1st, 9:00 a.m.: Official Check-out
New Project Information
We are excited to provide you a little more information to prepare you for your project! Again, if you are wanting to prepare your own project and bring your own fabrics, your project to work from during the retreat will be the Lakeshore Sunrise.
However, if you are looking to gain the most from this retreat in terms of learning something new and having a great time, we encourage you to consider the Workshop Projects, using the same layout as Lakeshore Sunrise, but with new blocks and techniques you have not seen before!
We will be designing (3) different blocks (or block groups) to fit the layout of the Lakeshore Sunrise spaces and you will be able to mix and match your design!
Not only that, but Quiltworx is working with Quilters Quest to provide pre-cut kits for the workshop! You may choose any of the following fabric collections designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer, with Timeless Treasures, or from (2) shop-selected fabric collections for your quilt. So, please review these collections and think about which one might be your favorite!
FABRIC COLLECTIONS NOW AVAILABLE!
The collections below are currently available in a quilt shop near you.

NEVER BEFORE SEEN FABRIC COLLECTIONS!
On June 1st, you will receive a newsletter for the workshop that will show you the (9) possible quilt options (mixing and matching the blocks we have designed for the workshop). You can pick your layout and your collection and submit your order to Quilters Quest!
You will have two weeks to make your selection, and not only will they prepare the kit, but they will complete the pre-cutting as well! When you show up to class, you will simply need to “cut on the Cut Lines” for each Template Layout Sheet as you complete each block in your project!
There will be no class prep required by you, simply show up to your kit, ready to go for class! And, you will learn to make your project, along the way!
With (4) Instructors, (2) Shop Owners who are also experienced in Quiltworx designs, and (2) staff from Quiltworx to take care of you during this retreat, there will be many in the room to help you along the way!
In June, you can expect official kit prices based on each layout as well. We are so excited to bring you all such a dynamic and interactive classroom experience with your Madeline Island Retreat! Stay tuned for even more information, and we will be in touch again by June 1st!
With (9) possible layout options and (8) different fabric collections to choose from, there are up to 72 different project possibilities with this retreat!
While attending the retreat, you’ll see demonstrations and learn techniques to make all of the possible blocks. So don’t be afraid to let us know you like more than one. Work on one during the retreat and take the other home to make another project using all that you learned! And, take advantage of the opportunity to have your projects prepared for you, at excellent prices by Quilters Quest!
If you see a layout or colorway you just love while at Madeline Island, you will have the chance to custom order a kit for other variations there as well!
Happy planning! We can’t wait!
