The Clearing Folk School

Quilt with Judy
The Clearing

THE CLEARING is a school of discovery in the arts, humanities and natural sciences in Ellison Bay, Wi (Door County).   It is a "hands on" folk school experience where students reside for a full week of camaraderie, beauty in nature, quilting and great food. The week offers a project or theme that most participants choose to work on but Judy is open to students working on quilts of their own choosing as well. Students sew in the Schoolhouse, a short walk from the Main Lodge and campus.

For information on how to register... go to their


May 3-9 or Sept 20-26

This years class will be an open studio format with a theme of "houses" for those wanting to have a focus or challenge for the week.  

Enter the construction zone and create a quilt "block by block".  It could include traditionally pieced house blocks, log cabins, improvisational houses, appliqué or maybe a reproduction of your own home.  

Feel free to join me for the camaraderie and ambiance of The Clearing while working on your own individual project or on the theme project.
