3 Day Quilting Workshop w/Cat - Judy Niemeyer Coral Reef (SM) San Marcos Location

Join Catherine Wilson for this 3 day Quilting Workshop making the new Judy Niemeyer Coral Reef Quilt. 

The Coral Reef includes many of Judy’s techniques for paper piecing, including cutting, stacking, chain piecing, curved piecing, strip piecing, smart corners, appliqué, the use of Transition and Registration Point (TRP) Lines, and curved paper piecing. This is the perfect beginning project to learn more advanced techniques.

Instructor Bio:
I have been a crafter my whole life, but didn?t take up machine sewing until just after my 17th birthday. By the time I was 21, I had declared myself a quilter, and told my family I only sew flat things, and my quilting journey had begun. Fast forward 25 years, and I have been teaching quilting for the past 15 years. I am a Quilt in A Day Certified Instructor as well as a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor. I teach approximately 100 days a year, throughout California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, with an occasional class in my native Tennessee. I love all types of quilting, however, most (but not all) of my classes are paper piecing based. I teach beginner and advanced techniques, as well as color theory, and design your own classes. People often ask my why I love paper piecing, and my answer is simple, I can get shapes that that are simply not possible in traditional piecing, and I can replicate them exactly every single time. I hope you will join me one day in class!
