I'm reasonably confident with my sewing machine thanks to the Sew Forest of Dean "Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine" course, but was worried I wasn't precise enough to do patchwork. She's helped me with my cutting and piecing skills, and I've now made cushions, and a baby quilt. Feel like I'm now ready to tackle my first grown up quilt, I've learned so much! Thank you Jen!
Response from Sew Forest of Dean:You have some great ideas for your projects Emily, I'm so glad I've been able to help you gain confidence and to get you started with them. Your bookcase quilt is going to be stunning, I can't wait to see it finished.
I learnt so much on this course. I had always wanted to make a quilt but didn't know where to start. Jen explains things in such an easy to understand manner. I really enjoyed the course and I am now making quilts for all of my grandchildren!
Response from Sew Forest of Dean:Thank you Jane, it was a pleasure to get you started on your quilting journey :-)
