Fantastic!

Class: If Our Quilts Could Talk

Enjoyable and informative. I learned a lot about quilting, which I'd known nothing about, as well as how to document the items we weave at home. The class also prompts me to add more details (initials & year) to items I make as a woodworker.



Wanda H. on October 18, 2023
Class: If Our Quilts Could Talk

The class was absolutely so interesting and informative. The speaker was very engaging and knowledgable about the topic presented. Annie Smith was inclusive and well-organized with a mixture of slides and live presentation. Amazing!

Wonderful. I wish it had been more lessons. I learned quite a bit and truly enjoy this instructor. I will definitely take more quilting/stitching courses online.

Class: Quilters Palette - Sampler of Techniques

Very good - almost as if one was in an in-person class. The instructor was very knowledgeable in online classroom teaching.

It was excellent! We met every week for about three months. I will miss those classes.

Class: Quilters Palette - Sampler of Techniques

the teacher knows her stuff and communicates clearly. I have taken two other classes with Annie, and this one seemed a little less well paced than the others, but still - overall - worked well.

Well organized and thought out, with an overview of the material the multi-week course would cover, and a few useful hints for general quilting.

Class: Color Sense for Quilting

The class was every bit as good as being there in person. The instruction was excellent with individual teaching and help being readily available. The demonstrations were actually more easily observed through Zoom (because the speaker could be highlighted) than trying to gather 12 people around a sewing machine. The class members were not able to have the same mingling and closeness as would be in person. But in general the class was excellent and very worth the money. Our instructor was available the entire length of the class each day (10-6:30). We were able to take breaks but that made it feel very much like we were in the classroom setting at Campbell. It was great! Without that continuity and accessibility of the instructor, it would have been a very different class. There was also an advantage in that we didn't have to lug our sewing machines to class (from home). Also, we had our own fabric stashes to work with since we were in our own homes. That was a real plus!

Amazing! Annie has infectious enthusiasm, and a kindness and patience that is beyond anything I've experienced before. She certainly exemplifies the idea of teacher as servant of her students' needs.

I enjoyed it! As we discussed during the class, there are some advantages to the online version: you have access to your complete sewing studio and fabric stash, and with Annie’s multiple cameras, EVERYONE could see what see was demonstrating. With saved videos, you could go back and revisit something you missed. She is an excellent online instructor; she has figured out how to teach quilting effectively online!



Janice B. on March 29, 2021

Excellent - the teaching was wonderful, and by the end one felt one was in an actual classroom setting!



Ali W. on March 29, 2021

So awesome! Annie is a lovely instructor and let everyone come and go as they pleased. The material was super fun, and everyone was so supportive of each other’s work. It really felt like being at the folk school.
