Quiltworx University:

October 13-18, 2024

If you’re interested in being one of the first people to create a quilt using new blocks, never before released to the public, this is the retreat for you! We’ve created this exclusive retreat project from the Congo Star Mixer series, and the results are going to be FABULOUS!

Before the event, we’ll help you design your project one on one, or you can choose from a number of spectacular kits designed by Judel Niemeyer using Quiltster. Did we mention you get a 6-month subscription to Quiltster free?! You could design your own project from blocks to fabrics, or we can help you. Either way when you arrive on site, we’ll have a personalized box with your kit waiting for you to begin sewing.

At the event, we will have instructors along side the illustrious Judy Niemeyer, demonstrating all of the new blocks for your quilt design. You’ll know how to complete every block of your quilt before you leave!

Also, you won’t want to miss this beautiful venue, Snowline Acres, where you’ll enjoy breathtaking mountain views, legendary sunsets, and enjoy spacious sewing areas. There will be laughing, creativity, trunk shows, demonstrations, people with an abundance of tips and tricks sharing techniques that help make these quilts come together like a dream!

Don’t miss out on the last few spaces left. Contact us today to reserve your spot! Click the button below for details and to sign up.


“Had the best time and learned so much!!! This retreat was a dream come true and I hope to do it again!!! The CI’s were the best! Made some awesome new friends that will stay in touch with for a lifetime! The employees were amazing and so helpful. Judy and Judel were everything I imagined! I cannot imagine what all I will create after this but it will definitely be better after all that I learned!!!”

~ Arlene Madding Mears, QU Texas 2024

“Yes I learned so much! The entire experience was wonderful. I would love to do another one of these.

~ Susan Womack, QU Texas 2024


If you would like the opportunity to explore Glacier Park, Flathead Lake, or any of the beautiful and historic communities in the surrounding areas in between sewing, this option is for you! Our Quilt Camp retreats allow quilters not only time to sew with Judy, but time to explore one of the most sought after summer vacation spots in the US, Northwest Montana!

These events include 9 nights of lodging, 5 days of classes, catered food (on the 5 days of classes), and 3 days to explore Northwest Montana on your terms (lodging at the Training Center included)!

You are welcome to bring any Quiltworx pattern in any stage of completion to work on!
