Woodside Quilting brings Judy Niemeyer Retreats to Central Iowa and Des Moines! Want to learn how to make and create beautiful paper pieced projects? Then come to one of our Judy Niemeyer retreats to learn and grow your paper piecing skills. Our retreats will focus on YOU and YOUR paper piecing projects you would like to complete. Our retreats will offer 3 - 4 more simplified smaller project patterns. So if you are a "beginning paper piecer" we can re-introduce you to what Foundation Paper Piecing is all about and get you started off right! If you have been doing foundation paper piecing and want to learn more advanced skills or start a larger more difficult project we will also offer in the same retreat time those "skill building" techniques. In both instances you will be on your way to creating beautiful heirloom projects large or small. These will be your creations you can call your own and cherish for years to come. Our Certified Judy Niemeyer teacher May Black will help you with pattern and fabric choices as well. This is a class to be able to work on ANY Judy Niemeyer or similar paper piecing project. So don't be intimidated or scared of these beautiful creations, you too can learn these skills to create treasured Heirloom quilts and projects that will last for years to come. Join us on a beautiful fun filled exciting journey with Judy Niemeyer Foundation Paper piecing!

Retreats are 9:30 am - 4:30 pm each day. Once you find your pattern (s) that you would like to work on either call or email the shop and we will order the pattern for you so you can receive your class discount. Also it is recommended that you come early and choose your fabrics for your projects to utilize your retreat time unless you are wanting May Black to help in your fabric choices There are no refunds for these retreats.
