2/22/20 - Dothan Sewing, Dothan, AL

Thank you for sending Marilee back to Alabama. We had another great Embroidery Garden & Dothan Sewing Center event!
It was a packed crowd again this year and we learned more and had even more fun than last year - which I didn't think was possible.
It is refreshing to have a embroidery vendor that is so focused on teaching (not a two day sales pitch). Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We completed six fun projects that are great for personal use or gifts. The cork and fabric zipper bag was a favorite as was the composition book cover.
Your design instructions are well documented, making them easy to follow and beautiful once completed. The hardest part of the class is trying to figure out which of the tempting new designs to take home and try on our own.
Marilee did a great job not only educating us but instilling the confidence we needed to know we could complete more EG projects once we were home on our own.
We are Looking forward to next year's EG even with Marilee. - Debbie F.

Just a note to tell you how much we appreciated Carrie coming to our shop.  Not only was she quite capable of the task she came to do, she was also a delight to work with.  Thank you again! Randa P.

3/19/19 - AAA Sewing, Lomita, CA

I just wanted to let you know what a superb job Merilee did at the in the hoop class at AAA sew and vac last weekend.  It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot more than I had known before.  She has a wonderful sense of humor but really was on spot with her instructions.  There were a few times that I felt sorry for her.  She was trying very hard to keep us all going at the same speed but some of the women were too busy yapping to listen to her.  It had to be frustrating for her but she never let it show.  If she ever comes back for another class I would definitely sign up.  Thank you, Mike D

1/27/19 - Flash Sew & Quilt, Naples, FL

I just have to say how great and easy to follow your instructions are for your ITH projects. I took a class from Marilee at Flash Quilt store In Naples FL and was paired with a very insistent person who only wanted to do the more involved type projects. I didnt want to cause a riff so I let her. I was so worried that I wasnt going to be able to replicate the projects with the kits I got to bring home. I just got my Solaris two days ago and yesterday sat down and within 45 minutes I had my Sewing Caddy finished! Today I will do the others. I will be getting more of your projects knowing that because of the great teacher Marilee R is and your precise easy to follow instructions are I have such confidence I will be able to do them. If Port Charlotte wasnt so far away I would be going to the class up there in Feb just so I could learn from Marilee again!

1/20/19 - Linda Z's, Arlington Hts, IL

If you are on the fence about signing up for one of Reen's events, jump off that fence! I just attended my first ever embroidery event and of course it had to be one of Reen's! Reen is the nicest most down to earth person you will ever meet! The class projects are wonderful (couldn't wait to get my hands on that notebook cover that is a class exclusive) and Reen works with the class to ensure success.

So what are you waiting for? Look at her class schedule and sign up. Today! What are you waiting for, run over and do it now! 


-shout out to Linda Z's in Arlington Heights for hosting this fabulous event!

1/5/19 - Dothan Sewing, Dothan, AL

Hi Reen 
We had the pleasure of attending the Embroidery Garden event in Dothan, AL this week.
It was the best embroidery event I have attended, by far. Told Marilee that she has ruined me for any other events! Appreciated the program being about embroidery, creative growth and completing practical, useful items over the two days.
She educated us to the benefits of the EG products without being pushy. Attendees eagerly bought projects because they understood the quality of the digitizing and no show seams. I was happy to add the two kitchen sets and the Relax projects. Can”t wait to make the smaller bow bag, mirror cover and manicure set holder for my 4 granddaughters. They will love them.
Marilee said she would be happy to come back to Dothan ... we are going to hold her to it ... as well as Jim Woodham. 
We had 50 attendees. Great feedback heard during the breaks. The attendees appreciate how the class is about the attendees and their needs.
Thanks so much for your program structure and having knowledgeable and personable instructors. Can’t wait to attend the next one!
