Back by Popular Demand, Quiltworx University!

Our last retreat at Madeline Island School of the Arts (MISA) was so well received, that we’re doing it again!

Join us July 23-27, 2018 

Get ready to embark on a Quiltworx Special Event that is a once in a lifetime opportunity!  Madeline Island School of the Arts, ranking among the top five art and craft schools in the country, provides exceptional workshops, renowned instructors, and superior on-site accommodations all in a unique island setting.

During this unique retreat, take a series of collaborative workshops with Judy Niemeyer and three of our Certified Quiltworx Instructors, Jodie Madison, Kristin Bender, and Jennifer Eubank.  Also, Quilters Quest, a Certified Shop, will be returning as our on-site vendor with fabric kits, patterns, notions, tools, and general support for the project.

We’ll be introducing a NEW mixer pattern where you can use Quiltster to custom design your own quilt with a special layout only our Quiltworx University students at Madeline Island will have access to!  The project will be announced in March of 2018, and will be available in both a wall and queen size.

There will be trunk shows and color workshops in the evenings, and plenty of time for free-sew or personalized attention with Judy and her instructors. You can also get feedback on projects brought from home!

Three delicious meals will be provided each day, plus unlimited refreshments, and snacks. The crew at MISA makes sure their famous bottomless chocolate chip cookies jars stay filled too!

The results will be stunning and unique!  Just check out some of the finished quilts from last year!  Click the thumbnails to enlarge.  Also note the last two are Facebook videos created by Jeanette Walton showing work in progress for many of the finished quilts shown below.  The first video is from day one of the retreat, and the second video is from day four.

With over three-quarters of our students returning from last time and a smaller group size, there are only a few spaces left!  So don’t delay!  A 25% deposit is all you need to hold your space in this retreat.  We hope you can join us for this new and fun experience!  Click here for more information and to register.
