Maker's bio

I have been sewing & making patchwork since I was tiny. Have you ever wanted to make a quilt? It looks so easy but do you find yourself thinking “What if I do it wrong?” or "it’s harder than I thought?” These questions are all normal so I put together a variety of programmes that can help. I didn’t start off being a confident seamstress, but I had someone who did not give up on me – and that has influenced me. My passion is in sharing skills. I would love to share that passion with you

Julie reviewed: Patchwork and Quilting Workshop with Green Man Quilts - Improvising from the Tradition

"Really enjoyed the course. We tried various blocks under Sheena's guidance, she let us choose which we preferred. I used lots of scraps and now understand how to modify traditional blocks to make a modern interpretation. Zoom worked well."

Green Man Quilts responded:

" So glad you enjoyed your day. This was such a fun workshop and I loved working with you"

Helen Clark reviewed: Patchwork and Quilting Workshop with Green Man Quilts - Beyond the Ditch : Adventurous Quilting with a Walking Foot

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course, and came away with lots of ideas, hints and tips - and more confidence to try new ideas. Sheena is a great tutor - she explains things well, and is prepared to demonstrate and explain a different way if we didn’t understand it the first time. She never makes you feel that you are stupid! Sheena also coped with glitches in technology with patience and humour. I’m looking forward to the next workshop I’m doing with her in June! Thank you Sheena!!"

Green Man Quilts responded:

" Thank you, Helen. I am honoured by your words. It was great having you along and I can't wait to work with you again. Roll on June!"

Jane Landsborough reviewed: Patchwork and Quilting Workshop with Green Man Quilts - Simple Stained Glass

"This was a fabulous stained glass workshop. I learned so much, Sheena made it fun and the day flew by. The day was really well organised, too, so that it felt like a face-to-face course. Sheena has the skill of imparting her knowledge with good humour and grace and she has loads of tips to share."

Green Man Quilts responded:

" Thanks Jane. It was a lovely day and so nice to be able to create a really enjoyable event for people with lots of lovely interaction and supportive contributions. Thank you for joining us, and well done on a lovely wall hanging."

Paula Prince reviewed: Patchwork and Quilting Workshop with Green Man Quilts - Simple Stained Glass

"The stained glass window workshop was a most enjoyable day. The preparation handouts were very clear and easy to follow, as were the instructions on the day, and Sheena was on hand at all points during the day to help and advise. I felt that I learned some more new techniques, which I have since made use of in another project. I also appreciated the fact that we were able to more or less complete the work during the day. A great day, which I would definitely recommend!"

Green Man Quilts responded:

" I am so happy that you enjoyed the day. And delighted that you are being able to use the skills in other projects. It is nice to have a project that fits so neatly into a single day!"
