"What a lovely workshop. Date changed by myself without fuss or trouble. Sue was a very knowledgeable lady who was able to pass on her expertise with ease. I have come away with a sampler, which I am very happy with, and many ideas for future projects. I would highly recommend this workshop for all levels of sewers. Thank you for a great time Sue."

"This was my first workshop with Sue. She was very welcoming, friendly. All the way through the day she was interesting and knowledgeable about her subject. I learnt most of the things I wanted and came home with a sample that I was proud of, and would continue to improve on. The cabin that we were in was full of Sues brilliant work which was encouraging. We were given lovely home made cake and lots of coffee to add to the fun day."

Jill Essex reviewed: Beginners free motion embroidery workshop in Buntingford, Hertfordshire

"This was my second workshop with Sue. She was helpful and encouraging as ever, particularly when I was having trouble with my 40 year old sewing machine. Sue makes sure everyone is making progress, intervening in a non-obtrusive way when things aren't going so well. I came away with a piece which I felt quite proud of and I was doubly pleased today to see it as an example of beginners' work on her website. Thanks for another great workshop."

Sue Nicholls Designs responded:

" Thanks for the lovely review Jill."

Jill reviewed: Free Motion Embroidery Landscapes in Buntingford, Hertfordshire

"I am not yet very confident with machine embroidery but Sue was so reassuring and encouraging that I was soon getting the hang of things. I had a great day experimenting with paint, colour, different fabrics and stitching techniques and went away with lots of ideas to work on. We were well-supplied with drinks and homemade cake and made to feel very comfortable in Sue's inspiring workshop. After the course, Sue sent us an email with a list of suppliers for the materials which we were using from her plentiful stocks; nothing seemed to be too much trouble."

Sue Nicholls Designs responded:

" Thanks Jill for the lovely review."

Ros reviewed: Free Motion Embroidery Landscapes in Buntingford, Hertfordshire

"A lovely way to spend a day in Sue's studio filled with her own wonderful work, inspiration and lovely crafting materials. Sue not only encouraged us to experiment in our introduction to machine embroidery but also taught me things I didn't know about my machine and hand embroidery. Topped off with lots of tea and cake. I'm inspired to get embroidering for our wedding!"

Sue Nicholls Designs responded:

" Thank you for the lovely review, Ros. So glad you enjoyed the day."

Sonia Galan reviewed: Free Motion Embroidery Pictures in Buntingford, Hertfordshire

"Sue Nicolls is a lovely lady and the course was just brilliant. It was informal, in a lovely setting and very informative. I learnt the basics of machine embroidery plus, I feel, some more intermediate techniques - certainly enough for me to now practice and experiment on my own. Apart from the practical elements, I also learnt about the sewing machine attachments/set up, threads, fabrics, equipment etc needed for machine embroidery with advice on where to purchase them from. I was very pleased with the work that I produced - Sue's help & guidance has given me confidence to expand on what I learnt. She certainly is one talented lady as her log cabin is full of her very creative and stunning pieces; and work in progress. It was also good to discuss a subject we are both very passionate about. I would certainly recommend Sue and her course/s. Her husband makes very good tea too!"

Sue Nicholls Designs responded:

" What a lovely review, thank you. It was a pleasure to teach you"

Jane Guy reviewed: Free Motion Embroidery Pictures in Buntingford, Hertfordshire

"This was my fourth session with Sue and the opportunity to try something new. As always Sue's clear explanations and demonstrations gave me the confidence to tackle new materials and techniques. To come away with a completed wreath was a real sense of achievement and the fact that my friend and I chose completely different styles is a further tribute to Sue. If you want to escape for a few hours of creativity this is the course to try!"

Jenny Thomas reviewed: Free Motion Embroidery Pictures in Buntingford, Hertfordshire

"Anyone who loves sewing and crafty things will fall in love with Sue's studio and all the bits and bobs she has there - let alone the marvellous display of her creative skills. And as for the course - it was fantastic. Sue is a great teacher - clear in her instructions and so patient and ready to help with advice. Through her I managed to overcome my fear of free motion machine embroidery and produce a lovely wreath which is proudly hanging in my sewing room prior to be on display for Christmas. We have already signed up to another course in January and if you live in the Buntingford area in Hertfordshire and want to increase your craft skills then I urge you to get in touch with Sue and you will have a great, creative time."

"Sue was quick to establish my level of experience and what I wanted from the course. The garden studio is a perfect workspace with all materials readily to hand. I was delighted to finish some appliqué autumn leaves and have already booked another class. A lovely way to spend a morning!"
