"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."

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.
