Finally a class that teaches easy machine applique. Loved it and I can finish the class project and start a new one soon.
I really liked the teacher, she speaks at a pace that you can really understand what she is saying. I have taken classes where the instructor speaks to fast and is hard to follow.

So I can't wait to take another class with Annie Smith.

I really enjoyed the class. It was a tremendous help to me on curves an points. I do think it would be helpful to mention sometimes you have to reverse your image and some good suggestion on how to do that. Had I not had a previous class I would have forgotten to do that and would have wasted a lot of fabric. I’m very pleased with how my piece on a baby quilt came out!! I’m ready to take the next class! The back of the baby quilt will be in the minky/cuddle fabrics! Thanks again Debbie DeCamp

I really enjoyed the class. Anne's demonstration of how to chart blanket stitches and use them correctly on a piece was especially helpful to me. I feel confident with her tips that my blanket stitch will greatly improve on future projects.

I love to applique,but am self taught and didn't always like the finished result. After watching this class, I learned so many fine tuned pointers that I never would have thought of. Her voice is soft and keeps things interesting.I enjoyed every minute of this class without losing interest. Everything is concise and easy to follow. Can't wait to start applique again with satisfying results! Time and money well spent. Thank you for this class.
