Machine patchwork courses with Green Man Quilts

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.

1-day Patchwork & quilting workshops in Watford with Green Man Quilts

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.

My day of “free motion quilting” was enjoyable, informative and inspiring. Sheena has a great knack of sharing her knowledge in a humorous way. She encourages and motivates and gives tips and short-cuts to simplify tasks. The limited class size means that you get plenty of one-to-one time with Sheena as well as discussion and sharing ideas with the other students. I learned so much

I attended the Fibonacci for Quilters recently. Although I am a reasonably experienced sewer, I was a complete novice to quilting. The group was small enough that Sheena was able to give us individual help as needed and by the end of the weekend I had produced something that I will be proud to display!

Response from Green Man Quilts:

It was fabulous to have you along for the weekend. You had such fabulous ideas and really worked so amazingly hard. Do send me a photo of it in situ. Well done.

Machine patchwork courses with Green Man Quilts

I am in my second (or possibly third) year of evening classes with Sheena. She is an amazing teacher who manages to have work rounds for my many mistakes. Her projects each term have improved my skill levels as each one is different. If you are a total novice but like the idea of quilting, Sheena's courses are just for you. I would highly recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed the "Get that quilt finished" course with Sheena. I loved experimenting with the walking foot and free machine quilting. Much more practise needed!! As always the tutition was first rate, developing my knowledge, skill set and confidence to think outside the box. Thank you Sheena

Had a wonderful day with Sheena today. I learnt so much about my machine and how I can get so much more from it. Sheena is an exceptional teacher and makes things so much easier. I've got a lot to practise which I know I will enjoy. This was a real fun day and so enriching. Thank you so much Sheena.

Thank you Sheena for a fantastic year. I have gained an enormous amount of confidence not only on how to use my sewing machine, but to tackle the different technicks of patchwork and quilting, from a very unsure beginner to someone who can't wait for next September.....bring on the " pinwheels "
