Patchwork and Quilting with Dawn Cameron-Dick

April 2017

Cherry.Thank you very much for arranging last week’s course and for all your hospitality during it. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much – but also very much appreciated your delicious lunches and refreshments throughout the day and the relaxed and friendly environment that you provide at Lilac Barn.

This is the first chance I have had to get back to you. I wanted to thank you for the fantastic course that you ran last week. I learnt so much and was so pleased with my creations by the end of the week.

Hello Cherry

Back home and to normality (if there is such a thing!).

Just to let you know how very much I enjoyed your upholstery course last week. The whole set-up is wonderful, together with the fabulous selection of refreshments – from morning coffee, scrumptious lunches and then topped with afternoon tea and cake. What more could a girl ask for?

Many thanks for a delightful experience, with all your knowledge and advice. I feel we shall meet again.

Kindest regards. Sheila.

 

Machine Quilting weekend Course Sept 2015

I would like on behalf of the group of five that visited The Willows last weekend
thank you very much for the lovely welcome we were given and the beautiful food that
you prepared for us,we all thoroughly enjoyed both days. It was suggested on the return journey that perhaps we could visit next year and undertake another course
with Dawn after all we will be experts by then!!

Patchwork May 2014

I had the most amazing time at Lilac Barn and both Wendy and yours truly may well ‘darken your doorstep’ again in the not too distant future.

The lunches were brilliant and so nice that everyone sat together which allowed us to get to no each other. It was a super atmosphere and we came away with a lot more knowledge and confidence than we arrived with. Chris

Patchwork November 2013 Dawn Cameron Dick

Hi Cherry
just to say had a great week with Dawn and yourself.
learned a lot in a very social atmosphere.
Thanks for lunches and yummy cakes!
Have booked for next summer so must keep practising as we learned lots over the week.

Just a quick email to thank you so much for the course last week. It was amazing and I absolutely loved it. It was so much much more than I expected and I feel like a learnt so much. I met such lovely people and I am very sad to be back in the real world instead of in the  ‘Lilac Barn sewing bubble’ that I was in last week. I am definitely addicted.
