This was an excellent course, well taught. The resources to use were plentiful and varied. I came away with a great Dartmoor landscape, exactly what I wanted to achieve. Alison is a very good teacher with a wealth of experience which she is only too happy too pass on. I would highly recommend this course.

I had a lovely day at Alison's Seascapes Embroidery course. Alison was very relaxed and encouraging and everyone in the group produced an individual piece of work ready to hang on the wall. I will definitely be signing up for future courses.

A very enjoyable and absorbing day. Alison is very patient and totally inspirational. I cannot recommend this course too highly, and as long as you have a sewing machine, some basic knowledge of how it works and want to discover your inner creativity, this is for you.

I did this workshop last year (2020) really enjoyed it. All materials were supplied - real fun rummaging around looking for bits and pieces to make up the picture. Alison kept the day moving at a good pace, giving a lot of information in bite size chunks so I didn't feel overwhelmed. I even managed to finish my piece which was a first. Thank you Alison for an enjoyable 2 days!

What an exciting day, with lots of fabrics to choose from & lots of ideas to inspire.
Alison is a truly amazing artist & teacher. She also had a vast collection of her hand made cards available, which help with ideas for your own work.
Thank you, Alison.

A really informative course for all levels. Alison shared lots of tips and, because of the small number of participants, gave lots of individual tuition. Looking forward to the next course in September.

What an amazing inspirational course! Alison is very clear, patient and encouraging in her teaching and made this introduction course a complete pleasure to attend. Fun, relaxed and informative and I learned loads including those hard to find tips and secrets gained only through experience and which Alison was so happy to share. She is an attentive teacher and is flexible and creative in her teaching style. I will be back for more and TOTALLY recommend!
