from Wendy in the class Thoroughly Modern Log Cabin. "I had such a great time. I couldn't wait to get back for day 2 and could have gone on for several more days. I love ruler-less piecing and it has changed the way I will go forward, wonky is me!!! Barb, you are so laid back and have such talent, its fantastic!! … I can't wait for another class Barb!"
from Bena …"Thanks so much for a truly inspiring and liberating class."
from Helen … "Seems to me that we all paid close attention to Barb's wise words and were truly inspired and encouraged as we tried to use our guts instead of our heads. I for one felt the freedom of the "no ruler" rule - after my initial nervousness disappeared, of course. All Barb's doing!"
from Trudy … "I have taken courses from many instructors. Barb is one of the very best. She is very instructive, yet laid-back in her style. I would most certainly take a three day course from her."
from Myra … "you are a wonderful, encouraging and inspiring teacher. I had a great time and feel I really got a lot out of our class, I am so glad it was 2 days, it made a huge difference,to continue with the project and actually get the top done! So much good advice!"
from Joan … "I had SUCH a great time in the last two days. You are so inspiring and SO much fun!!"
From Helen in the Improvisational Collaborative Quilt class … "Thank you so much Barb, for an incredibly inspiring day of improvisational quilting. It was just what I needed to take a break from painting and return to sewing which I grew up doing and return to periodically. Your teaching style is very powerful. You create an atmosphere of trust in which everybody can believe they will be successful.......and are. You ensure everybody is engaged in the primary activity within a short time of arrival, keep your instructions short and to the point and take short breaks to demonstrate how to solve a technical problem without breaking the creative flow. You make it look easy but it isn't as I know having taught many adult courses."
"… I'm still madly quilting.I can't tell you what an inspiration you have been to me."
