Patchwork and quilting week with Dawn Cameron Dick

We both benefited from Dawn's course and returned with information overload thankfully we have made notes for reference. It was wonderful to start off with basics, needles and threads it has made an enormous difference to my machine which is very OLD. Thankfully I hadn't purchased a new model before the course, I certainly know what I should be looking for now.

Patchwork and quilting week with Dawn Cameron Dick

Hi Dawn
Just to thank you once again for a wonderful week. I learned so much and it was a lovely group where everyone was so generous not only in sharing their knowledge but constantly offering words of encouragement. I loved listening to all your tips and learning different techniques. The only downside was the week went too quickly. What a wonderful place Lilac Barn is. Cherry is such a wonderful host and a lovely person. So thank you once again for an inspiring week

One week upholstery courses with Cherry Dobson

I can thoroughly recommend the 5 day course. Cherry is an excellent teacher and as the numbers are small everyone gets her individual attention and can work at their own pace on whatever project they have brought. The workshop is very well stocked with tools and the huge variety of materials used in modern and traditional upholstery. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and we were well fed with tasty lunches and plenty of tea and cake.

Weekly upholstery workshops with Cherry Dobson

Cherry is a fantastic teacher, and so helpful and supportive. I thoroughly enjoy my Upholstery days at The Lilac Barn, and always look forward to spending the day learning from Cherry with such a lovely group of fellow students. I have reupholstered 2 chairs, and am so pleased with them, and another is underway.

Patchwork and quilting week with Dawn Cameron Dick

We are relatively inexperienced quilters who went on the course with an idea of what we wanted to learn. We were not disappointed as we had achieved our aims over the week and more. Lovely welcome from both Cherry and Dawn. Delicious lunches. Dawn's instruction was flexible and each of us within the group worked to our own level. We would recommend this week to anyone wishing to enjoy and learn valuable skills in an ideal environment.
