“I just wanted to thank you for the Patchwork and Quilting course I attended…Please extend this to Lindsay - I thought she was a brilliant teacher - she explained everything really well - but moreover her enthusiasm was very contagious. I am hooked and already starting to look to stock up on all the gear!  It was particularly such a treat to learn something new - which is great after being at home all week with young babies! Already got my eye on another course as soon as I can!” Vanessa, Patchwork and Quilting
