Quiltworx Experience

Featuring the 2023 Technique of the Month "Carnival Flower"

March 12 - 17, 2023

Join us for a week of Creativity, Friendship, and Fun!

March 12 - 17, 2023

You are invited to join us at the very first Quiltworx Experience in Quitman, TX at The Retreat Center located just across from the beautiful Stitchin’ Heaven store and showroom. The Quiltworx Experience is for everyone from the beginner to the most experienced paper-piecers. You will enjoy the opportunity to work with the most knowledgeable Quiltworx Certified Instructors. In addition to great fun and fellowship, you will learn Judy’s newest technique of the month, cutting techniques, chain-piecing, curved piecing. With Judy’s new pattern mixers, you have the incredible opportunity to create an astounding quilt.  

Multiple certified instructors will be demonstrating use of Quiltworx products, tools, and short cuts to complete amazing quilts. This retreat does include 2-days of cutting instruction. However, if you are comfortable with pre-cutting your fabric, you can bring your kit pre-cut and start sewing on day 1!

The Quiltworx Experience classes will take place in our brand new 5600 Sq Foot Event Center that is due to be open in October 2022. Each quilter will have their own table with ample sewing, cutting, and pressing space!

Stitchin' Heaven is proud to be your Quiltworx Certified Shop!

-Land Ahoy Orlando Traveler

"Such a great trip. Everything is planned out so well. Just a very easy, fun, exciting trip."

-Linda A.

"Erin, Amy, Erica were fantastic, patient, knowledgeable, made it exciting and inviting for me to grown in my new adventure of learning to sew and quilting. Nancy and Sandy were very knowledge and explained everything in detail. The projects were exciting but challenging for a person just learning my way around the equipment, not understanding the quilting terminology Naturally it took me a very long time on each project. I will learn about everything and continue the projects at home."
