Sandra Coffey Retreat - October 20-24, 2021

The Class

Cosmic Shimmer

Come to the Cosmic Shimmer Retreat to learn how to create this dazzling star quilt designed by Brad and Judy Niemeyer. This quilt is the result of two worlds colliding. One is the Quiltworx pattern, and the other is Tula Pink fabrics. What a magnificent combination.

With hands-on instruction by Sandra Coffey, you will learn to paper piece the Judy Niemeyer way using Judy's detailed pattern. Sandra will also show you methods to organize your fabrics and sew to success. Then, all the mystery of paper piecing will vanish.

This class will begin at 3:00PM on October 20th.

Here's what our customers are saying about our Trips, Retreats, and More...

"Please don't hesitate you will have new friends from across the country for a life time. It is fun and regardless if you are an older beginner or an advance quilter you will learn and pass your experience on to others. You will not be disappointed. PS I am a shy person and relaxed and had a great time."

"This is the first trip of this kind that I have taken and am already saving to take another! Our "bus moms" Sandra and Nancy were beyond great! The value of the experience, tours, acoomodations, etc. were well worth the price of the trip!."

-Linda A.

"For transitioning from cruising to land for a quilt retreat, Stitchin Heaven did an amazing job. There were lots of little gifts and surprises along the way. Chocolate was handed out when called for. The excursion to the fabric shop was lovely and the lunch they provided top notch. The trip to the Titanic Museum was one that I will not forget for a very long time."
