This course certainly lived up to its title! Lots of instruction in machine quilting with time to practise quilting in the ditch, straight and wavy lines and spiralling within a geometric shape - and I got the maths! Sheena demonstrated free motion stitching and gave us time to practise. We were shown and helped to layer up our quilt tops in preparation for quilting. All of this was accompanied by examples and handouts. We were all given individual help and support too. The preparation and planning that Sheena does to deliver these excellent courses is outstanding. I have the confidence to take my quilting forward. Thank you Sheena. Looking forward to November.
I thoroughly enjoyed the "Get that quilt finished" course with Sheena. I loved experimenting with the walking foot and free machine quilting. Much more practise needed!! As always the tutition was first rate, developing my knowledge, skill set and confidence to think outside the box. Thank you Sheena
I am new to patchwork and quilting. Sheena was extremely helpful especially as my choice of fabric was not ideal. She has great patience and skill at communicating. Really enjoyed myself. The time passed too quickly
Disappearing 9 patch is an intriguing way to make a quilt! I didn't quite get my top finished but with Sheena's illustrated handouts and her detailed demonstration of layering up and binding I am confident I will have it finished. Thank you Sheena. Excuse me, my quilt is calling, must dash!
Sheena is a very experienced and knowledgeable tutor and has a caring approach to her students. She works hard to ensure that all participants are supported and are achieving their goals.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I was pleased to have achieved the first stage of my quilt. As with all courses the tutor has to address the differentials between all participants. Sheena coped with this very well, however, I think it would be helpful if we could have some handouts including pictures to demonstrate each stage of the process, as I have only completed the first stage whilst some of the more experienced participants achieved more at the end of the course. I watched with interest those that were in front but I was so keen to complete my quilt I missed some of the next and subsequent stages.
My quilt is coming along really well but I think I will struggle to finish it without some clearly written instructions and having invested both time and money into this it will be great to see the finished article.
I look forward to working with Sheena in September.
An excellent weekend quilting. I am always amazed at how much I and others achieve in just two days. Clearly this is down to the excellent tuition, relaxed working atmosphere and friendly co quilters. Thank you Sheena for your encouragement. See you in September.
Sheena's Disappearing 9 Patch course was, as always with Sheena, a safe environment to push boundaries. I don't often do random - but I had decided to work in an array of batik - so the fabric lent itself to a random design. With Sheena's encouragement I stopped trying to control the layout of colours and just went for it and guess what - it looks wonderful. It is good to work at my own pace and know that I can call on help when its needed. Felt like a friendly supportive group with lots of chat and much needed coffee and muffins / biscuits. Thanks Sheena
Just completed 2 day disappearing nine patch quilt course with Sheena, my fourth course with her. Sheena is a gifted teacher, breaking course content down, sharing her skills and knowledge generously and inspiring us with her enthusiasm. Her flexible approach allows us to work at our own pace and put something unique and personal into our work. Lots of group and one to one help and support. Highly recommended.
