Are you sure I can learn all by myself without a hand-on class?

Absolutely! I have heard so many quilters saying they couldn’t learn – it is got to be a hands-on class… Is it really true?

Again, it is NOT! The most important thing I have learned from my last 10 years of teaching is teaching is not about me, the teacher, it is about YOU, the student!

Here I want to pause and thank all the quilters who have voted me as your Favourite Quilting Teacher through Quilters Newsletter Magazine and nominated me for American Teacher of the Year 2008 by American Professional Quilters.

But do you know you have collectively given me the chance to discover the key to learning anything and everything? You have proved: Fact #1: No one has learned the technique within the First Hour without at least an hour preview before attending the class; Fact #2: Everyone learned within 3 hours if they trusted my instructions to focus on how they quilt instead of the stitch size; Fact #3: No one can learn if they don’t believe they can change!

Yes, It is that crucial One Hour! After teaching hundreds of classes, big or small, in different countries in different languages, I found something in common! Everyone is fingers and thumbs in that first crucial One Hour! A difference only begins to show after that…

That is why MY first instruction in my class is “If you don’t give up within the 1st hour, I shall guarantee you a success!”

Not only I have discovered the secret of this first One Hour, I have tested it on myself for the last few years! I have learned everything that I had thought I wouldn’t be able to learn let alone to learn on my own.… How many times have you been told golfing or computing are really hard? Let me tell you, they are not once you put your heart and mind to them! By doing so, I have learned the complete Software of professional publishing software and I am very good at it now! I have dramatically improved my golf swings…

Don’t ever let yourself talked into relying on a “teacher” or anybody else. You are the only one you can count on! An honest teacher will never tell you that you can’t learn without her, even if that may loose a sale for her. No matter how many classes you take, you are still The ONE to make it happen!

I have put my heart and soul into this book and DVD because I believe the best and the most cost effective way for YOU to learn is to learn directly from the inventor and take control of your own learning! My trademarked Teaching Course is achieved through my own first hand teaching. This is what the DVD class about.

Once you go through the first three exercises in my book in that 1st hour, you will SEE yourself on the way to learn everything you ever wanted. You will find THAT selfconfidence and talent hidden in yourself. Honestly, this could be the best SECRET I can ever share with YOU!

Get started now! Be prepared for the following stages of learning:

Stage #1: - Flip through the book to get a feel of what the technique and thimble are all about. Expect to learn “nothing” to start with. Pay close attention to the first half of the book: what is the technique and what does the thimble do; What is the trademarked Teaching Course and the Trouble Shooting tips… Don’t give up if you feel bombarded by the information and couldn’t remember a thing!

Stage #2: - Have a second read of the whole book, focus on the 10 Exercises. Play the DVD once resisting the temptation of picking up your needle!

Stage #3: - Set aside one to three hours all for yourself. Visualise what you have read. Follow one exercise at a time. Devote the 1st hour to just the first three exercises by the order as I said! Focus on the power you push the needle and the coordination of two hands not the size of stitches… Have a little break only after that. Not a rest every 5 minutes. You should be able to quilt without pricking on your under finger in an hour!

Stage #4: - Continue the rest of the exercises one by one until you no longer bend the needle when moving it back and forth! Follow my instructions – I didn’t put everything in the book lightly, I shared everything I have with you. You will only appreciate it once you have tested it. Once you reach that point when you can load stitches easily without bending the needle at all, you can then sit back and say, YES, I’ve got it!

How to know what size thimble I need?

In this case you don't need to worry about sizing since you are getting all 4 sizes! Just make sure your finger size isn't bigger than the Size Large of our range of thimbles by wrapping a piece of fine dental floss around the widest part of your top knuckle. Make a marking at where two strands of floss pass each other. Measure the distance between the two markings – that is the accurate circumference of your finger.

Once you find the perfect size in our plastic range, you know exactly which steel thimble you need as the plastic thimble and the steel one are identical in sizes.

If I want to buy your silver thimble, how do I measure?

After you have learned the technique with the package, you can take a picture of your finger with the plastic thimble on and email the picture and the size of that plastic thimble, I'll be able to send you a matching fit in our silver range without you measuring again! Isn't it easy?!

If the thimble doesn't fit, can I exchange?

You can exchange all metal thimbles. But you don't need to worry about it now because the packages include all 4 sizes of the plastic thimbles for you.

I am not a great bonus giver nor interested in a fire sale. I am a teacher and I believe the biggest bonuses I have for you are sharing my true secrets to perfect hand quilting, to the joy of learning that can potentially benefit you for life in every goal you set out to achieve!

The following bonuses are to make your learning easier.

Bonus:

Three extra plastic thimbles - All four sizes for the price of one! So you can get purchase the package online without worrying the fit or exchange. Keep the one fits you the best. And give the rest to your family or friends!

* Why do I need the essential quilting kit?

It is for easy learning. The right density of fabric and batting are selected for the finest quilting stitches with which you can concentrate on learning the technique. This kit is to give you a direct feel about the real thing before you acquired the knowledge and become more experienced.

How to match materials and tools to quilting designs/patterns are analysed and illustrated in the book. With the kit, you can learn the technique first and then the knowledge.

** Why don't I get the hoop and threads in the essential package? Aren't they important?

Yes, they are. Although my hoop and threads are essential to healthy quilting and better stitching result, they are not essential in the very first stage of learning of the pain free technique. As long as you have the book and DVD, a Thimblelady's thimble and needle to practice on the right fabrics and batting, you can learn the technique by doing the 10 exercises with the needle even without threads on it.

What is the advantage of the hoop and threads in the complete package?

The hoop is designed ergonomically to keep your back straight and sit up right. It sits on the chair and stabilised by the weight of your thighs. So you have both quilting hands free to quilt and no part of your body carries any weight of the quilts avoiding the back and neck pains old hoop designs usually cause. The book explained the causes of various pains on our body caused by quilting posture and hoop size and shape etc. You can learn the technique using the hoop or frame you've already got or without a hoop.

The cotton thread in the kit concentrates the right stiffness and thickness plus the top quality glaze that is essential as the best cotton for very fine hand quilting.

What's your advice, Thimblelady?

Buy the Complete Package if you can afford it right now to save money for the full benefit. If you can't afford it now, get the Essential package first. Save up for the rest while learning the technique. After you read my book, you will know the importance of these two products. Try the threads and hoop before you embark on the design of your best ever quilt! You will be amazed.

P.S. If after all my personal help, you still don't learn, you can send the entire package back and we shall give you a full refund with no further question asked.
