My name is Michele Everts and I am a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor from Fort Laramie, a small town in Eastern Wyoming. My quilting journey began when my son was born. I had an overwhelming desire to make something for him that he could treasure his entire life. After that first quilt, I was hooked and have been quilting ever since. I am constantly striving to continue learning and perfecting my skills.
Upon seeing my first “Judy” quilt, I was eager to learn to create such an intricate design. When I took my first Judy class, I was impressed by the organization of the process and accuracy of the finished product. Judy’s process takes what looks like an extremely complicated quilt and breaks it down into a set of easily taught techniques that give highly accurate results. I have now completed over 35 Judy quilts with several more in process.
I have always enjoyed helping others, and teaching quilting allows me to incorporate two things I love to do. I continually strive to connect with each student and give them personal attention. My goal is for each student to feel at ease and enjoy the process. I possess a positive, upbeat attitude and I bring that energy into the classroom. Asking questions is how we learn, so I never tire of student’s questions. Helping others achieve their goals is a top priority for me. Each student comes with a different vision for their project. From choosing a pattern, color selection, piecing and assembly, I am excited to help students with each step of their journey. The greatest joy for me as a quilting instructor is to see the smile on the faces of my students when they have completed their projects and realize what they have accomplished.
