I had such a wonderful, fun, productive day learning to make a quilt with Amanda last week. Amanda is a very calm and patient teacher, with a wealth of experience and advice to offer. The fabrics that she had curated were lovely and I am so pleased to have come away with a completed mini quilt and the skills and enthusiasm to embark on my own quilting projects. The course was everything I hoped for, and more. Highly recommended to anyone thinking of giving it a go!
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Thank you Pauline for your review. It was a pleasure to teach you. This is just the start of your quilting adventure!
It was a very inspiring day and made quilting very doable even for a beginner - the fabrics were lovely and so were the flapjacks! Amanda was very patient and helpful with knowledge, experience and advice you just can't get in a quilting book. Thank you!
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Dear Zoe, Thank you for your review. You progressed so quickly during the day as you made your first quilt - you took to quilting like a duck to water! I hope you get lots of pleasure from this new craft.
I did a one to one course with Amanda at the weekend and it is the best thing I have done in a long time. It was such fun and so rewarding as I came away with my own mini quilt! All in one day.!Amanda took me step by step and was so helpful with suggestions and expertise . So inspired have bought my own equipment and am about to start on my own project and its only Tuesday. Thankyou
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Dear Helen,
I thoroughly enjoyed the day spent with Amanda learning the skills of traditional quilt making. As it was one to one tuition from a very experienced quilter it was fabulous. I even managed to leave with my own quilt sampler. Couldn’t recommend the day enough.
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Thank you for your review Pauline. It was a pleasure to teach you yesterday in the studio. I hope your sampler quilt will be just the beginning of your quilting experience!
What a great day! Very patient teacher with a novice and full of tips and tricks. Everything planned perfectly so I went home with a great mini quilt, having tried the techniques needed to make a full size one. One to one teaching means you have someone making suggestions and sharing expertise all day and so learn quickly. Aftercare great too- follow up email with more tips and a newsletter and advice re suppliers. Feel I’ve taken a leap forward and have the confidence to get started on my own!
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Dear Angela,
Thoroughly enjoyed the quilt making course. Amanda is very patient and a fantastic teacher. Measures were in place to maintain a social distance for Covid. Beautiful building and a great day of learning. Would do it all again :)
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Dear Lynsey,
Fantastic day in a beautiful historic building quilting with Amanda. She is a patient, careful and inspiring teacher. All Covid precautions were respected and a safe environment for learning was created. I’m very pleased with my finished quilt and ready to start on my next project. Thank you so much
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Thank you for your review, Sue. It was good to meet you and your finished quilt was lovely. Well done. Lots of quilt-making ahead!
I spent a day with Amanda on this course and found her experience invaluable. She was patient, informative and understanding. I completed a sample quilt which I thoroughly enjoyed making. I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in quilting.
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Thank you for your review Tracy. I hope this will be just the start of your quiltmaking! Looking forward to seeing the photo of your finished item.
I really enjoyed my day with Amanda, her studio is in the beautiful surroundings of Ushaw college. All COVID precautions had been taken and rules observed at all times. This was my first time quilting but after Amanda’s excellent tuition I am confident in giving it a go myself. I was given lots of advice and tips to help with my future projects. The course was delivered in a comfortable atmosphere and led by my pace, as the course is one to one it could have been intense but it was amazing how quickly the day passed. I left with a completed quilt. I would totally recommend this course to anyone looking to begin quilting.
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Thank you for your review, Barbara. I'm glad that you enjoyed the day at Ushaw. It was nice to have fine weather, so we could eat lunch outside in the grounds. I hope you continue to enjoy quilt-making in the time ahead.
I thoroughly enjoyed my course with Amanda. I’m a first time quilter and was shown lots of good basic steps to get me started. The quilt I left with is really lovely. She followed all covid rules and made me feel very safe. Additionally the building she works from is beautiful, adding to an altogether great day.
Response from Amanda Jane Textiles:Thank you for your review Pauline. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and hope that it will be the beginning of a long and pleasurable journey into quiltmaking.
