Mark your calendars! For the first time, Quiltworx University is heading to the West Coast and its heading for Thimble Towne! February 28th through March 4th, 2018, join Judy Niemeyer and six hand picked Quiltworx Certified Instructors, for a fun filled Quiltworx University!

Judy will be designing a never before published quilt to be introduced at Quiltworx University! You will be given exclusive access to Quiltster to design your project from a select set of components and several lines of fabrics! No need to worry about bringing a machine, because Thimble Towne is providing every event attendee with the use of their very own sewing machine for the week! Every attendee will also be receiving their own dedicated work space with cutting mat, pressing board and iron.

The week will begin with an opening night Meet & Greet cocktail reception with Judy where you can get relaxed and mingle with other event attendees. Your event fees will cover 4 lunches, 4 dinners, and brunch on the final day, with daily snacks and refreshments. A kit fee is separate from your registration, and will be finalized late summer 2017.
