We are always so pleased that our videos and workshops inspire others to join the happy band of textile addicts;  here is a lovely letter from a beginner who seems to have done just that:

I didn’t have a sewing machine or knew how to use one just 6 months ago but have fallen in love with patchwork in the meantime and have bought myself a very basic, very cheap sewing machine. (I’m on an extremely tight budget in a rather godforsaken Central European country).
I do admire your gorgeous work on this channel & wish you all the best with it – I’m just about to explore the full content – amazing, honestly! :):):)
I’m trying to attach my very first works for you to see – each contains about 300 mistakes but I don’t mind – I suppose even the greatest master quilters started the process once upon a time … :) with that proverbial first step down the road…
