Read students' comments about Nancy's
"I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your lecture and work
shop this past week with the West Houston Quilter's Guild. I could
not wait to get home on Thursday to continue practice stitching and
basting my Breadfruit pattern. I have sewn for so many years, done
every kind of hand work imaginable and quilted for the last 15
years, but after the few hours spent in your class a whole new world
opened up for me. You inspired me personally to step out of my
comfort zone of pieced quilts and to try something new.
Thank you for sharing your talent and love of Hawaiian Quilting."
"I attended your traditional Hawaiian applique class in London,
Ontario. I am just thrilled at the prospect of being able to
actually make one of these beautiful quilts. I have looked at them
and perused your webite for a while now, but never really thought that I
could make one. I have quilted for years but most of my work has
been machine piecing and long-arm quilting. You certainly gave me
the confidence to go ahead and try to applique using your method.
I did take you home in your DVD, so I
can watch for advice any time I want. The class was fun and I
learned so much watching and listening to you. Thank you so much
for travelling so far. You have influenced my work. Many
"Wanted to send you a note to thank you for the WONDERFUL classes
last week!!! I learned SO much! I'm really enjoying stitching on my
Hawaiian block and it really IS stress-free!...And your technique on
doing POINTS - WHAT MAGIC!!! My points are ALL coming out perfect...I'm
definitely a devoted fan."
"Thank you for what was the best class I have ever taken! I came
away with a brain stuffed with new techniques, ideas and enthusiasm. You
are a superb teacher, unbelievably organized and able to convey
information in a manner that is understandable and fun! To be able to
connect with all skill and experience levels was a challenge, but you
really pulled it off! That was one of the most worthwhile Saturdays Iíve
spent in a long time."
"Nancy, just a note to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed your
workshop. I hear you as Iím appliqueing, ĎDonít forget to breathe and
"Your knowledge, skills and ability to communicate really benefit
all of us!"
"Thanks for sharing your love of applique."
"Thanks for a great class. I was right--even experienced appliquers
can learn something to help, if they take classes from good teachers.
Loved your class and tell everyone to take it when they get a chance."
"Of all the applique classes I have taken, no teacher has ever
devoted that much time to our actual stitching, and I can see the
improvement in my stitches as I work...one of the rare classes where
every minute was productive."
"Your teaching style is wonderful. You are very well spoken and
succinct. There is no doubt about what you mean. I only wish I had taken
applique classes from you before I had all of these bad habits to break.
I have been talking you up BIG around my house. Now my daughter wants an
applique class from you. I'm sure you will be seeing me again...(with
daughter in tow!!)."
"I owe everything I know about applique to you. I appreciate the
fine standards that you set for us."
"Nancy, What an incredible day! I was convinced that I didn't
like to applique from past experiences. As I sat and took my first
hesitant stitches and continued on to stitch a straight line and then
two points, I was amazed at the fun I was having and how nice the
finished product was looking. I have taken several classes before
at guild, but never before have I had a teacher who really spent the day
teaching. My head was swimming by the end of the day. Thanks
for the printed instructions. They proved very helpful today as I
continued to practice inside and outside curves. I will strongly
recommend your classes to everyone."
Here are some comments Nancy has received from her on-line
"I want to thank you for your excellent class on the computer from
Quilt University and will look forward to your next class. I really
enjoyed and learned so much. I am so happy that I found the Quilt
"YES! YES and MORE YES!
Nancy did an excellent job! The material was unbelievably well
presented. Questions were answered in a timely manner and in a very
understandable format. In a heartbeat! I wouldn't change a thing.
Nancy has taught me what all the books I have, haven't been able to
teach me in 13 years."
"Awesome! Wonderful! Perfect! More Please!
Not sure if the above gets it across enough, LOL...you have a true
treasure in Nancy, she is a wonderful person to chat with and her
instruction is wonderful. I am needle turning applique like a pro now
and that wasn't even the class!
Since Janice did the photography for
Nancy's Quilt University classes she wanted to make sure this comment
was included also:
"...I nearly fell off my chair...You make each stitch and each step
so clear with those great pix. ... They (the photos) are glorious in
both color and detail. You two made a fine team!"
