"Sonya has a great knowledge of sewing and is very patient in her teaching method. She focuses on my creative style and helps me to apply my style in any project that I am making. I have come to her many times with questions on sewing and quilt making and each time she answer my questions and makes sure that I understand the next steps to move forward to complete my projects. I love giving baby blankets and quilts for gifts and she has taught me how to make gifts that I love and the people I am giving them to love also.
