Student’s Comments



Thank you for one of the best programs our guild has had in a 40 year history of programs.  I have received about a dozen text messages from quilters at all levels of experience telling me how much they enjoyed and learned from your program.

Thank you, Karen! You are a great teacher. You break down the steps into easy, manageable parts. Your descriptions are clear and direct. Your use of video and live demonstration with multiple camera angles provides a comprehensive instruction. I would highly recommend your virtual lectures and workshops.

First time in a virtual class, I finished 2 blocks, it was so wonderful not to haul all my stuff, perfect temperature, perfect chair. It will be hard to go back to in person workshop. This was so much easier to see, easier to ask questions felt I got more out of it. Thursday presentation was also best I have ever been to.

I loved my class. Learned a little more about optical illusions and as always I love working with Karen. She is a great teacher and is very professional. I would definitely take another class with Karen.

I enjoyed every one of the four classes that I took with you.  There was a "light bulb moment" for me in each one of the classes Thanks again for "opening my eyes" to a new dimension in my quilting.

Karen, just wanted you to know that several of us were discussing last night's meeting and how we all felt you are one of the best speakers we have had.  Specifically, interesting to listen to, taught without being pedantic, fun, very well prepared, knew when to stop, personable, and GREAT ideas with the illusions.

I attended your class yesterday at the Freeport (NY) Rec. I would like to thank you for a wonderful experience.  I have taken quite a few classes, but this was the first time, after a class, my excitement kept me up all nite (till 6am) sewing.

Karen, I just wanted to thank you for coming to Tulsa and teaching the workshop I attended last Saturday.  I learned so much and have been busy sewing 3-D blocks out of all the fabric combinations which I brought to class.  My 9-year old son has laid claim to the quilt once it is finished to hang on his bedroom wall.  He is totally fascinated with the effect.  You are a wonderful teacher and I thank you for sharing all your tips and techniques.  I now understand value much better than ever before; and the crowning achievement of the day was learning how to do a perfect Y seam!  Thank you.
