Patchwork and Quilting Course

April 2014

Patchwork and Quilting course with Dawn Cameron-Dick

I would like to thank you both for a lovely week.  I feel that I learnt so much in a group of like minded people.

What a luxury to spend a week with your sewing machine getting excellent advice, being able to carry on with your own project and learn so many new techniques and skills! Jeanette

I had the most amazing time at Lilac Barn and both Wendy and yours truly may well ‘darken your doorstep’ again in the not too distant future.

The lunches were brilliant and so nice that everyone sat together which allowed us to get to no each other. It was a super atmosphere and we came away with a lot more knowledge and confidence than we arrived with. Christine

Another very successful week was held in the studio with Dawn. Students

commented that they had learnt far more than expected in a perfect light, airy and

spacious studio.

Would have stayed longer if possible, had loads of inspiration, and enjoyed the

friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Lunches were delicious and the afternoon

cake a treat!

They would all like to return and recommend the course to friends.
