Whenever she gets ready to start a new club, I get giddy with excitement about all of the new projects I’ll be able to make. I also find her clubs to be a great value. I’ve taken single-item sewing classes for the same price as her entire club! And with those classes I don’t get to take the instructor home to help me when I want to make the project again. I can’t wait to get started on her next club!- Jen B.

Thank you for a very detailed tutorial, Vanessa. You are an excellent instructor who really explains all the potential “gotcha” areas where a sewist could run into problems if they’re not careful. A very lovely and functional project, thanks for taking the time to plan, film, edit and post this tutorial ! -Diana from Toronto.

I LOVE Vanessa’s teaching style. She shows and explains in a way that is understandable and never in a way that is belittling. Bonus – I can pause, rewind and watch the tutorial as many times as it takes to finish project! With having a disability, I am unable to attend classes outside of my home. This is a WIN, WIN opportunity! Thanks, Vanessa! -Karol S.

I love love love your tutorials. You have the amazing gift of being a great teacher which is a rarity. The ability to break down a concept and instruct it in usable, easy to follow steps is a rarity. On top of the fact that you are approachable, interesting, down to earth and real. Very non-intimidating. I am so glad I found you several years ago. Your encouragement has been appreciated. – Jane W.

So much easier to learn from a video than just pictures. You are a gifted instructor to have such clear communication and know just what to emphasize and explain to make the learning process so easy. Thank you for sharing these videos. -Elizabeth G.

Vanessa, I could have used this video 10 years ago when I first started machine embroidery! You are a terrific instructor. Thanks for making the videos so logical and straightforward. I have been teaching for 34 years and certainly can appreciate all the hard work that goes into a great lesson. -Geraldine C.
