"I wanted to write and thank you for a wonderful learning experience. I have taken several courses on machine quilting and have purchased several books as well. I am slowly gaining more and more confidence with my efforts. Your DVD was so very well organized, delivered and demonstrated that it has given me the final push to break out and go further with the art side of thread painting. Thanks for the boost!

"I hope you will consider doing more DVDs of the presentations and workshops that you mention on your website. I would certainly buy them based on what I saw in the DVD."
