Judy Niemeyer

 We just got in two amazing samples of a Judy Niemeyer pattern!  This is the "Christmas Tree Skirt", though it's been made with non-Christmasy fabrics, and the hole in the middle has been left out, so now it can be a wallhanging or table topper. 

You can make this wonderful quilt during a class/retreat with Catherine Erickson, a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor.  This is the description of the class/retreat from our latest newsletter: 
October 28, 29 and 30
Retreat + Workshop option
Catherine Erickson, a certified instructor for Judy Niemeyer Quilting, will be holding a 3 day workshop during this retreat.  Students can either choose the Christmas Tree Skirt (makes a great wall hanging for any time of the year) or the Bali Wedding Star. Want to get a sneak peek? Take a look at The fee for the workshop is $130.00, separate from the lodging fee of $145.00. Students wanting to "sleep at home" will be charged a meals and conference room use fee of $85.00 each instead of the lodging fee. Please contact Delphine's @ 989.732.1252 to register for the Workshop.

If you don't want to take the class, but want to see a Judy Niemeyer trunk show, there's this option:

At 7 pm on Thursday, October 27th at the Alpine Lodge, in Gaylord, Catherine Erickson, a certified instructor for Judy Niemeyer Quilting will be holding a Trunk Show with a Punch and Cookies Reception! Catherine will show several fabulous quilts that were made using Judy Niemeyer patterns, including Bali Wedding Star, the Christmas Celebration tree skirt or table topper, Summer Solstice and more. Prepare for lots of eye candy as these paper pieced quilts are colorful and contain many pieces. If that's not enough, TWO lucky quilters will win a Quiltworx pattern, provided by Delphine's Quilt Shop. It's just $5 to attend, which you can pay in advance at the shop.

There are two other retreats, without the workshop, that you can also participate in:

November 11, 12 & 13 or 14, 15 & 16 - Retreat ONLY
The cost of lodging and meals for all retreats is $145.00 per person based on a double occupancy. Price includes 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 2 dinners and one ice cream social, plus coffee, tea and water in the conference room. There will be door prizes provided by Delphine's.
