Karen reviewed: Free-Motion Quilting

"The course was interesting, but I have to admit that I thought it would cover a lot more of the basics, I just wanted to learn the basic technique and getting the tensions correct, my machine was struggling with thread breakage and lots of eye lashes even though I was adjusting my bobbin tensions both up, down and auto. Free motion quilting around applique is not something I plan on doing, if anything, I would have preferred simple basics for a course, and an additional course to cover more difficult free motion quilting including shadowing etc. I appreciate the course help many and several others were having issues like myself. Being told it was probably my machine that was faulty was reassuring, especially as it seemed that I had the technique. Once I get my machine fixed I will keep practicing until I finally nail it. "

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your feedback Karen. I am sorry that you had trouble with your sewing machine on the day, and I hope that you manage to resolve the technical issues. Jacqueline "

Tessa reviewed: Quilting: Quilt-in-a-Day

"A very relaxing day spent achieving more than we could have imagined possible. Good pre course info meant I had all required materials and a little time to decide pattern in advance. Course not rushed breaks for coffee and cake. Good venue easy parking and plenty of room to sew."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your kind comments Tessa. It was a pleasure teaching you and your daughter. I hope you will enjoy more quilting in the future. Jacqueline "

lydia baos reviewed: Quilting weekend for beginners and novices - near Salisbury

"Absolutely brilliant. Only 7 people, so a nice small group. The tutor was excellent, especially bearing in mind 5 of us were definitely novices! I did not feel pressured for time, nor lack of attention. The lunch was just about right - not too much so that we wanted to sleep in the afternoon, even if we had wanted to. Would recommend this one to anyone thinking of trying quilting. I have already told a few of my friends, and plan to attend more courses as and when I can."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your kind feedback Lydia. I enjoy passing on the skills of this wonderful craft. I hope to see you again. Jacqueline "

Helen Morris reviewed: Quilting weekend for beginners and novices - near Salisbury

"I attended a weekend beginner's course recently and had such an enjoyable time. Jacqueline is an excellent teacher. Her demos were clear and easy to follow and well timed. She created a relaxed and supportive atmosphere and the group of people attending were lovely. I had a lot of fun over the weekend. The food Jacqueline provided was delicious (her meringues are to die for and her brownies were chocolatey slices of heaven). Whilst having a great time chatting and laughing as we sewed, I learnt a lot about quilting and picked up some great hints and tips. I'm looking forward to booking another session with Jacqueline."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your kind feedback Helen. It was a pleasure to teach you. I always enjoy passing on the skills of this addictive craft! I hope to see you again. Jacqueline "

Helenalilly reviewed: Quilting: Quilt-in-a-Day

"I thoroughly enjoyed making my quilt in a day. We were sent preparatory tasks vital to making the day a success. Follow what it states. I followed examples on an online format and I washed my squares. They shrunk which meant I had to cut extra pieces. The tuition was well delivered by a well experienced and versatile quilter. All the steps were fully explained with examples. A light lunch, tea, coffee and cake at breaks were included. The hall was very spacious and everyone had a table to themselves. Only issue is that there is no parking near the hall. The hall is behind the pub and up a short incline. The parking is in front of the pub. You need to move your sewing machine and equipments up and down a small hill."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your feedback. I’m pleased that you enjoyed your day. Hopefully my new teaching venue will have level parking nearby! "

"I just loved this landscape quilting workshop. Learnt so much from Jacqueline who is so attentive and supportive throughout the day. She was so helpful with every element of the quilts we were creating. It was also very good to chat and swap notes with the other attendees. I’ll definitely be booking more of Jacqueline’s workshops - so relaxed and creative. Can’t wait for the next one."

" Thank you for your kind comments Sarah. It was a pleasure teaching you and seeing the landscape quilts develop during the day. I look forward to seeing you again for another workshop. I did warn you that quilting is addictive! "

Maggie Felton reviewed: Quilting weekend for beginners and novices - near Salisbury

"The two day quilting weekend was a perfect introduction for absolute beginners to the craft of machine quilt making. The five beginners and the two novice quilters formed a friendly and encouraging group whilst Jacqueline taught at a pace that was appropriate for everyone. Jacqueline is an excellent teacher giving helpful tips for us to use for future projects. My quilt needs finishing at home, and I have been taught the skills to confidently complete my work in my own time. Jacqueline provided refreshments and delicious lunches on both days and is a warm and welcoming teacher. I wholeheartedly recommend this weekend course as the perfect way to acquire a new skill. I will certainly be keen to return in the future to learn more techniques."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you so much for your kind feedback. I am pleased that you enjoyed your weekend. I love to see how students projects develop during the workshop and I hope that you will find time to continue with this therapeutic craft."

Sarah reviewed: Quilting weekend for beginners and novices - near Salisbury

"As a hand sewer I felt some trepidation about going on a 2-day quilting course which was based around the sewing machine. However, I need not have worried. Jacqueline was a marvellous teacher who gave everyone, no matter their skill level, all the time they needed. The quilt I produced wasn't perfect but for my first proper attempt with a sewing machine I was very pleased with the result. I have learnt so much. The home made lunches and cakes were a joy and the venue a good space to work in. I'll be saving up for next time."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you so much for your feedback. It was a pleasure teaching you; I enjoy passing on the skills of this heritage and addictive craft! Look forward to seeing you again in the future."

Sue L reviewed: Patchwork cushion kits - to make yourself

"I originally had a problem with the cushion kits I received, but on speaking to Jacqueline, she was incredibly helpful and replaced the kits by return post. The kits are really lovely and the instructions for assembling the pieces are very straightforward and easy to understand. I am really pleased with the finished products. Can’t thank Jacqueline at Bee-spoke Quilts enough for all her help."

Allison Nicholls reviewed: Quilting weekend for beginners and novices - near Salisbury

"I booked on to the 2-day quilting course with only a few weeks experience of sewing so was a little nervous. However, Jacqueline was an excellent tutor and I learnt so much over the weekend and came away with a beautiful quilt. Jacqueline was so helpful, and demonstrated each step, which we could then carry out ourselves. The venue was ideal, in a lovely location and we were provided with a lovely home-cooked lunch each day, plus plenty of cake! I would thoroughly recommend Jacqueline’s quilting course and am looking to book on to another in the near future."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your kind comments Jayne. It is a privilege to pass on the skills of this heritage craft to keen newcomers like yourself. Quilting is addictive!"

Jan McColl reviewed: Quilting: Quilt-in-a-Day

"I have long wanted to learn to quilt whilst also viewing it as a mystery skill which I’d never manage. Jacqueline was amazing today. She taught each bit in sections and I came away having a very good understanding of the basics. I need lots of practice but I have definitely got the bug and can’t wait to do more. Jacqueline remained calm and patient. Nothing phased her. Highly recommended."

Bee-spoke Quilts responded:

" Thank you for your kind comments; it was a pleaseure to start you on your quilting journey. I hope to teach you some more in future!"
