Judy Niemeyer Quilting Certified Instructors

About the Educators:

Carol has been sewing since she was a child and made her first “Judy Niemeyer” paper pieced quilt, Arizona Cactus, in 2013. After falling in love with the organized preparation and sewing process of Quiltworx patterns, Carol was hooked on Judy’s way to paper piece! Carol attended more workshops taught by Judy and other certified instructors while beginning her journey in becoming a Quiltworx Certified Instructor. In August 2015 Carol became a Certified Instructor.

Carol teaches Quiltworx pattern classes and the Technique of the months at quilt shops and guilds in the Southeast USA.  She loves teaching and seeing her students grow more confident in creating these beautiful quilts. I will always tell my new students that if they can sew on a line on paper, they can make a Judy quilt!

Carol lives in the Atlanta metro-area and is always ready and willing to go wherever the quilters want to hold a class! You will find more information on Carol’s classes and events on her website, www.stitchwithcolor.com.


Victoria has been sewing for what seems like a lifetime, but her quilting really took off when she saw a picture of a Judy Niemeyer wedding ring. “I was hooked and had to have the pattern. That was 2012, fast forward to 2017 and I now have 30 completed Judy Niemeyer projects and became a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor in 2015 after an intense 2-year program. I fell in love with Judy’s paper piecing technique and I haven’t looked back.

Now after countless classes, trunk shows and a retreat of 100+ students I am proud to say that I have found my passion.  What once looked like an impossible task, the wedding ring, now has become a way of life for me. I truly believe that anyone can put together any Judy pattern with a little bit of help, a few tips and tricks and encouragement along the way.  I look forward to meeting you in class, working on a pattern you once thought was impossible but now is a reality, and you too will be soon hooked.

It is easier than you think!”


The Project: 

Judy Niemeyer Instructors, Carol and Victoria will be providing paper piecing techniques and lots of tip to make this project fun and easy.   You will go home with a finished (or nearly finished) quilt top.
