Thank you so much for coming along to my Patchwork & Quilting Workshops – your kind words are much appreciated …
“I have just finished a six week course for patchwork work for beginners. I have always wanted to make a patchwork quilt and when I retired I had the time. I went to a course because the books that I had did not make a lot of sense to me, as I little experience of sewing.
The course helped me to understand the techniques and allowed me the opportunity to make a sample quilt in a step by step method using my own sewing machine so that I gained confidence and skill as the weeks went by.
What I liked was the friendly and supportive way that I was taught and being given the time to ask questions.
The whole experience was fun and enjoyable and Val the tutor was great and her studio is a comfortable and welcoming environment.
I would recommend the course to anyone wishing to learn how to make quilts.” Carol April 2017
I’m so pleased you enjoyed the course and took home a finished quilt – the first of many maybe! Val aka Adaliza
I’m delighted that you enjoyed making your first quilt and am looking forward to your next project. I’m so pleased you had such fun. Val
Thank you for all your help and advice and we look forward to seeing you again. Jan Q
I’m delighted you both enjoyed the Log Cabin Workshop and were pleased with your cushions. They were stunning – well done! Val
“Thank you SO much for a truly wonderful afternoon. I enjoyed every minute and it was so nice to come away with some work, in such a short time, that I can put to good use. Can’t wait to do more.
It was lovely to meet you, hope to see you again.” Sue
“I thoroughly enjoyed myself using fabric scraps yesterday. It was great fun| I was fortunate to have lots of attention and assistance as well as sustenance in the form of numerous of mugs of tea and delicious homemade cake! I am very happy with this piece of work- need to decide whether to hang as it is or frame. Brilliant day thank you very much – even my husband is complimentary!” Caroline D
I had fun too – just watching the piece come together with all your personalised touches – a little cottage with a bunny in the window, standing stones on the hill and whales in the sea to name but a few! You created a very special picture at the Fibre Art Workshop and I’m delighted you’re both pleased with it. Val
I met Val when she had a stall at the ‘Trout & About’ event in Stockbridge and then went to her ‘Open Studio’ event in September and signed up to a 6 week Patchwork Quilt workshop – it was Fabulous and I am utterly hooked. Val was so relaxed and helpful, there was no rush, lots of chat plus progress with patchworking, loads of encouragement and praise. Who could ask for more?
I then signed up for a further 3 sessions to learn how to make cushions, again fabulous. Now I must try everything I have learnt on my own but Val is always at the end of email (always replies promptly) and I will sign up for another session to learn more styles of patchwork when I have mastered doing some on my own.
Thank you so much Val for all your help and encouragement and getting me to make a quilt which is something I have always wanted to do but lacked the ‘know how’, and I feel that I will be able to tackle that on my own now. Look out for a picture of the completed item!!! Mrs S
It’s been an absolute pleasure. You have an amazing ‘eye for colour’ and once you had those fabrics chosen, there was no stopping you! I’m so pleased you’ve developed a love of this art and enjoy creating stunning original pieces. Well done! Val
