Hi Amanda,

I have just finished watching the first two of these videos and wanted to say thank you for presenting these ( I know they will have taken a lot of time and preparation).

Your passion for this medium is inspirational. Your explanations are clear,and your creativity and colour choices are amazing. It is clear to see the textures and colours reflecting the area in which you live.

You have inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and explore use of this medium in ways I had not previously even contemplated..thank you so much again...super excited (especially from some-one who really doesn't like to use their sewing machine any more :) ) Can't wait to start practising...

Thank you so much again


(ps.we met very briefly in Melbourne the weekend before last)

hi Jennie, yes I remember meeting you with blue toes :) I love that you see passion for this medium in a different way, I am still finding creative ways make a statement with it. Have fun and remember to put up some pics for us all to appreciate Amanda
