Delilah: Jen Kingwell’s Newest Block of the Month Series Begins April 19th

Come and join a new group of quilters!  Bring your machine to sew each month with new friends, as we quilt our way through Jen Kingwell’s newest Block of the month series, Delilah.  This intermediate to advanced template set is only available at a few select stores around the world, and we are proud to bring you this creative class.  Delilah Quilt offers 6″, 9″ & 12″ Blocks.

Find yourself conquering y-seams and curves using her expertly made, heavy-duty templates to build a beautiful sampler in her distinct style and colors.   Learn more about color theory and explore several notions that will make all of your patchwork easier in our large, beautiful classroom.

Classes will run every third Wednesday of the month, beginning April 19th from 10AM until 12 PM, for 12 months.  Please feel free to join us anytime during the year.


Class fee will include sewing time and tips and tricks specific to that month’s pattern.  In addition to the monthly template and pattern, the first and last month will also include some helpful overall tips and tricks for choosing fabric placement and assembling the project.

Template and pattern purchase will be auto billed each month.   A fabric kit identical to the sample can also be purchased and will be provided at your first class.  A bonus 25% off your backing at the end of our Delilah journey will be offered to all class members, before we begin on our next Jen Kingwell adventure together!

My First Experience Staying at The Quilter’s Lodge

I wanted to let you all know how great I thought your Lodging Facilities were last week during my stay for the Laura Heine Collage Workshop.  First of all the staff for the Lodge was awesome, I was not left wanting a single thing.  To me your facility was more like a Bed and Breakfast than any Retreat Center I have ever been to.  I could have easily brought along my husband and he would have also been very comfortable.  It was great having extra time at the end of class to continue working on my projects and not feel like I had to get back home right away.  Even some of the local ladies decided to stay the night at the last minute!  The Lodge is located in a quiet area yet within 5 minutes to any other kind of shopping I may have wanted to do.  I will definitely be back and hopefully next time with friends or family!

Fiberworks Retreat – Customer Testimonial

We had such a great time at The Quilter’s Lodge. What a beautiful place.
Jonell & Instructor, Laura Heine
My husband, Tim, and I arrived late in the evening to find quilters busily working on their projects in the large classroom.  Introductions were quickly made and not to impede progress, we settled into our room while the ladies continued to work into the night. It is such an advantage to be able to work after the designated classroom time.
The classroom adjoins the quilt shop which displays full lines of fabric collections and all the notions you could possibly need. So perfect for a retreat or workshop to have everything in one facility, especially if you are traveling.
Sherie, you and Mindy were so accommodating. Your willingness to setup additional work areas following the workshop was very much appreciated.
Tim was provided several areas to relax and work on his projects and appreciated all the effort to make his stay so comfortable.  The Quilter’s Lodge is designed to feel like a “home away from home”.
Thank you for a wonderful experience,
JoNell and Tim from Colorado
