Denise teaches at quilt retreats occassionally so students can immerse themselves in creating a Judy Niemeyer quilt and have some fun with other quilters at the same time. These retreats are for all those who love the idea of spending several days focusing on a particular quilt with a expert to help them along and a room full of other happy quilters.

She's always working on plans for another retreat, so check back occassionally to find out when her next retreat will be.

The Captain's Wheel pattern by Judy Niemeyer will be the focus of this retreat.

Captain's Wheel Retreat
Held August 14th - 17th, 2014
Wimberley, TX

We were very excited to hold our first retreat - the Captain's Wheel Retreat was held August 14-17, 2014 in Wimberley, Tx. Wimberley is in the beautiful Texas Hill Country and it was a great place to have a retreat.

The retreat was quite a fun success! Each student made great progress on her Captain's Wheel quilt. Checkout the Captain's Wheel Retreat blog post where I've posted photos.

The Fire Island Hosta pattern by Judy Niemeyer will be the focus of this retreat.

Fire Island Hosta Retreat

Our second retreat, the Fire Island Hosta Retreat, was held again in Wimberley, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

As the name implies, this retreat focused on constructing the beautiful new Fire Island Hosta quilt from Judy Niemeyer which is shown to the left.

Total Eclipse Wall Hanging by Judy Niemeyer.

Beginners and Finishers Retreat
June 29, 30 July 1, 2, 2015
Wimberley, TX

This was an opportunity for attendees to either start learning Judy Niemeyer techniques by working on one of several beginner patterns (Total Eclipse, Dancing Batiks, Sunflower Illusion or 4th of July) or for those who had already started a Judy Niemeyer project in a class or retreat to continue working on that.   

As usual, everyone had tons of fun and got a lot accomplished. You can read all about the retreat on Denise's Beginner's and Finishers Wimberley Retreat Blog post.
