Now a 6 Night Event!
Judy Niemeyer/Quiltworx Event Center
Kalispell Montana

Contact Teresa if Interested

We think that 2022 is going to finally be a great time for us to all get together again!  Join your hostesses, Teresa and Julie in gorgeous Montana for a fun-filled EXTRA extra-long, quilting event!   For this retreat we are doing something a bit different -- as Teresa and Julie work their way toward their Judy Niemeyer Teaching and Shop Certifications, it is the perfect time for us to spend time in Judy's stomping ground.    Wonderful retreat accommodations together with new and exciting Judy Niemeyer quilting designs will make this retreat a time to remember.   Our first annual retreat was held in September 2007, and the tradition lives on - and now it's a 6 night event! 

Sure to be a truly pleasant mix of quilting, learning, friendship and fun - you will  certainly come away with memories for a lifetime, and a quilt that will be treasured.  This is the perfect opportunity for you to gather with old friends, or plan on making new.   Plus, don't forget to ask all of the important quilters in your life - your mother, sister, aunt or friend - if they would like to join you!

 Thursday October 6 through Wednesday October 12, 2022  - Check in at the lodge is 3:00 pm nd checkout at 11:00am .   We will begin with our first project at 4:00pm on the date of arrival.

The Judy Neimeyer Event Center is Kalispell -- in the Flathead Valley and jumping off point for the Glacier National Park. .


We have two different lodging locations, and both will meet or exceed your expectations.   Teresa will contact you with your location when your reservation is finalized.

DINING...Please note: We are not able to accomodate any special meal requests.  Meals will be provided from a variety of sources, and will include Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks, and several beverage options.

QUILTING... As in year's past, we will feature a mystery quilt that you will love ... and this time it is a Judy Niemeyer design.   You will have your option of two different colorways - Christmas Colorway or Winter Colorway.

Best of all, the materials for the regular retreat projects are included, but you can also opt for a larger quilt, backing, Early Bird and more!     
Of course, no quilt retreat is complete without a bit of fun  -- special drawings, great prizes, and fun games will add to the festivity.   

FRESH AIR... Everyone can view the spectacular mountains surrounding the Flathead Valley, maybe even catch a glimpse of the wild life,  breathe in the freshest air and enjoy the spectacular blue skies and relaxing way of life here in Montana while you stitch!  You will find time early in the morning to take a refreshing walk.  For those of you who really want to get a taste of Montana, we recommend arriving or departing a day or two after the retreat.  We will help you make arrangements at a local hotel if you like (we might be able to get you a room at the lodge for 1 night ahead.).

SEWING MACHINES... We have those available to rent, or you can bring your own.  But, we have found that today's machine carry bags make traveling by air or car a snap.

GETTING HERE... The closest airport is Kalispell Montana.   The cost for transportation to and from the airport is approx $75 per taxi trip.     We recommend a car rental as this will likely be more economical than a taxi. You can also take an Uber. 

WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER?... Like Colorado, one thing we can say about Montana, is if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes because it will change.  We recommend casual clothes, comfy shoes, and a light sweater and jacket - it can get very nippy in the evenings.   October can be fickle with lots of warm air and the possibility Frosty showing up, too. 

Full Plan - $1850 per person  

This Cost Includes :
6  Nights Lodging (individual bed/shared bathroom), All Meals & All Materials for the Mystery Quilt  Standard Size Top  - Backing and Early Bird additional. 
Does not include transportation costs or applicable taxes.

You will also need to fill out Registration Form and a Personal Waiver Form, which we can finalize when you arrive.
