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

Live online course
Julie - - #32457

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.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

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

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

Live online course
Helen Clark - - #32328

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!!

Response from Green Man Quilts:

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!

Patchwork and Quilting Workshop with Green Man Quilts - Simple Stained Glass

Live online course
Jane Landsborough - - #32204

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.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

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.

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!

Response from Green Man Quilts:

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!

I had a great day on this Zoom course- Sheena explained and demonstrated all the steps as well as providing an excellent pdf handout. There were lots of opportunities to learn from Sheena and from each other and it was lovely to be able to complete my wall hanging in one day (I did everything but the hand sewing of the binding during the class). I really feel I achieved something and will be making more as it’s been much admired.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

As always, it is great to have you along and you contribute so much to all classes.

So glad you enjoyed the day and it was lovely to see the photo of your wall hanging.

Thank you

This was my first experience of online classes and I found it very easy to follow. Sheena gave clear instructions and the handouts were very informative. The project was just the right size for the workshop, with most of it completed on the day. A very pleasant day, lovely to meet other quilters and of course Sheena. Thank you.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

It was lovely to have you along. Thank you for taking part. I do hope to see you again at another workshop soon.

Best wishes

Sheena

What a fun, interesting and informative day! Sheena’s a great teacher - her live demos, supporting videos and info, and her inclusive approach made for a really successful day. I’m looking forward to practising and developing what I learned and will certainly be back for more.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

Oh, Thank You! Delighted that you had such a successful day and I am looking forward to seeing what else you make.

Thoroughly enjoyed this online course. The teacher is friendly, supportive, approachable, knowledgable on her subject and quick at responding to queries. The teaching material, written instructions, photos and videos are very clear and very easy to follow. The whole experience worked very well and I will certainly be doing another of her online courses in the future. I can’t recommend her enough.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

Thank you for such a lovely review. You always bring so much to classes and I love the fact that you made TWO pieces during this course and not just the one. It is amazing how different the pieces are as a result of your fabric choices. Great work.

Brilliantly organised course. Sheena’s got the knack of imparting her knowledge with good humour and grace. She gives loads of practical advice, tips and encouragement. The mix of emailed instructions, downloadable videos, online community and constructive feedback is really successful. Answers to queries come back inhumanly fast - she seems never to sleep! I thoroughly recommend Shena as a tutor

Response from Green Man Quilts:

Thank you. You really are too kind! I really value your contributions to the class and you have such a good eye for colour.

Oh My! What a lovely review. Thank you. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and have appreciated the comments that you have made to support others. Thank you for joining the class and I look forward to working with you in the future. (Seam allowances really can make or break a project, can't they!)

I'm really enjoying this course. The online course materials are excellent, comprehensive and clear. It's also great to have Sheena on hand for individual help. Sheena is very knowledgeable and I've greatly appreciated her hints for doing things the easy way, instead of making things more difficult for myself. Funny too! Can't recommend highly enough

Sheena is a positive, kind teacher. She works hard to give everyone the guidance and encouragement they need and makes classes fun and motivating. I’ve learned about so many aspects of patchwork and quilting- choosing fabrics, colours, shade matching, cutting, as well as specific patchwork and appliqué techniques.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

Thank you, Sue. I really appreciate those kind words. And I am delighted that you find classes fun and motivating.

I really enjoyed the course, and found it very challenging. This had more to do with my skills and creative talent than anything.

I think it made me realise that I need to do a lot more practice of the basics which I am getting more confident it.

When life is a little less hectic I would like to join one of your classes as this would mean I got regular support and instruction.

Thank you once again. Ginny

Response from Green Man Quilts:

Hi Ginny

You did really well. Please don't undervalue yourself!

Free motion is something that really needs regular practice to come good and you will get there. You had some challenges with your machine and I am sure that a new stitch plate will resolve that. I am glad that my spare came in useful for you and enabled you to get the most out of your day.

I would love to have you along on one of my regular classes, but until then, do keep an eye on my day and weekend workshops to keep you "boosted"

Thank you for spending the day with me and allowing me to help with your quilting skills

Sheena is brilliant at conveying the common-sense approach while still encouraging to step beyond one’s comfort zone. She has the knack of congratulating success as well as focussing on areas for improvement. She’s full of hints and tips. I love my patchwork class - the fastest 2.5 hours of my week

Response from Green Man Quilts:

That is so wonderful to read - thank you.
It goes pretty fast for me too, and is always very enjoyable.
You have really highlighted what is, in my belief, a core principle of teaching - common sense, lots of support and a decent amount of challenge!
Thanks for being such a great student.

Response from Green Man Quilts:

Understanding that your tension dial can be your friend (and is not a scary monster!) is so very important and with these newer electronic machines it is easy to forget that we are allowed to change the tension! You really did well during the day and I can't wait to see how you incorporate free motion into you work in the future.
Thanks for a lovely review, and thanks for being one of my students.
