Here's why you should try piecing the Judy Niemeyer way:
Judy's patterns and process are all about organization. You will learn how to organize your cut out papers and fabrics so that even if you put them down for a while, you can come back to exactly where you were when you left off.
You will learn how to stack and prepare your work for chain piecing. The pieces are stacked in the order they will be sewn onto the paper, which allows you to complete several blocks at a time, saving hours.
TEMPLATES AND LAYOUT SHEETS
You will love template layout sheets included in each of Judy's patterns...instead of cutting fabric in rectangles, Judy cuts in the shape of the piece and indicates the Sew Side on the templates.
Although I have tried every craft known to womankind (Macramé, anyone?), nothing stuck until I signed up for a quilting class in 2003. I caught the quilting bug and I haven't looked back. In 2008, I took my first session with Judy Niemeyer, working on the Amazon Star. I immediately became a "Judy Groupie," taking classes with Judy all across the country.
After retiring from a career as a Human Resources Director with a Fortune 500 company, in 2013 I decided to become a Certified Instructor. That vision became a reality in April, 2014, when I joined six amazing women in becoming a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor.
