Spring 2020 I wrapped up my last T.O.M. class and, due to Covid-19 concerns, have put further classes on hold.
Discover your “inner quilter”!
Those looking to learn to quilt have many options. They can take many different kinds of classes with a variety of teachers, so why might you want to take a Quilting with Sue quilting class?
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” – William Arthur Ward, American Writer
Top 10 reasons to take a Quilting with Sue class:
#10 – Everyone loves quilts! They provide beauty, warmth, and comfort and soothe the soul. Perhaps you’ve noticed when quilts are featured on the ‘silver screen’. Take this little quiz for a bit of fun and see how many you recognize.
#9 – Some come to hang out with like-minded folks. Others simply find quilting relaxing and rejuvenating when the stresses of daily life take their toll.
#8 – Perhaps you would like to learn to make something you will treasure as a keepsake or give as a forever gift that conveys to the recipient how very special they are to you.
#7 – Is there a special event you’d like to commemorate? Quilts can celebrate a student’s graduation in the form of a T-Shirt quilt or welcome a new baby. A signature quilt can commemorate a special family gathering or give friends a format to bid farewell to one moving away.
#6 – Perhaps you regretted that you never learned how to quilt from your grandmother? It is never too late to learn. Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn the basics, or a quilter wanting to build your confidence or explore more advanced techniques, Sue teaches all interest and skill levels and small classes mean you get more personalized instruction.
#5 – Maybe you’ve been privately building a stash of fabrics and, short of qualifying as a hoarder, you need to learn to creatively put them to good use.
#4 – There is no long-term commitment to taking a class. You can simply check off that line-item on your bucket list, never quilting again if you want… though, like potato chips, it is hard to stop at just one.
#3 – Sue strives first to pass along her passion for quilting and next to see her students successfully complete their quilted piece. While UFO’s (un-finished objects) are inevitable, Sue structures her classes with completion in mind.
#2 – While she ‘can’ and has, Sue isn’t satisfied to simply teach her students to re-create a pattern, she delights in teaching techniques that bring out and develop the creative quilter within… and in so doing, Sue successfully inspires her students.
#1 – Sue makes quilting fun!
Encouragement for my quilting students…
An Amish quilter once told me to not worry about making a quilt perfect… and should I ever make a “perfect quilt” I should immediately insert an imperfection, for only God is perfect.
Put another way, Miles Davis said it best, “Do not fear mistakes, there are none.”
