You never know who is going to walk through the door at Checker on any given day. And, sometimes that person makes memories that will effect shops for a lifetime. We experienced just such an occasion recently – and those participants will never be the same!
Judy Niemeyer is a legend in our industry and was the featured presenter at our Open House last summer. When she told shop owners about her Certified Shop program, they wanted to participate but, of course, there was a waiting list. Class act that she is, she offered to come to them!
Judy taught a three day symposium just down the street from Checker for over 20 shops located East of the Mississippi. These shop owners and their assistants learned six different techniques and actually sewed samples so they could demo and wow their customers as soon as they got home!
As a shop owner, how often do you actually have a chance to sew??? They could watch everything that Judy did on a big screen T.V….
But the quilts are always the stars of the show! And it always helps when Judy is available to pick out all of the fabrics for your quilts – and classes! Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words – and this is one of those times! Being surrounded by heirloom quality quilts for three days is the quilter’s version of heaven!

We can’t wait to hear how they use the techniques they learned to encourage their customers to try new techniques. We will keep you posted on the Checker and Creative Grids Facebook pages. Why not “like” us today???
