This is Sheena!

Green Man Quilts is the creative home of Sheena Roberts.  That’s me!  I have been sewing since I was tiny and creating patchwork quilts for almost as long.

Have you ever wanted to make a quilt?  The interest in being creative has grown a huge amount over the past few years with television programmes like The Great British Bake Off, Kirstie’s Handmade Britain and The Great British Sewing Bee, but although programmes like this are great, where do you start?  It looks so easy when they do it, but do you find yourself thinking “What if I do it wrong?”, “What if it’s harder than I thought?”, “What if I buy the material and then it’s wasted?”

These questions are all perfectly normal and it’s hearing people ask these questions that made me put together a variety of programmes that can help.  Are you

  • enthusiastic, but concerned about your skill level?
  • in need of support to get the best out of your sewing machine?
  • not always sure that your fabric choices work as well as they should?
  • wanting help to achieve what is in your mind?

I didn’t start off being a confident seamstress, in fact, I was all but thrown out of the class at school but I had someone who did not give up on me – and that has influenced me and I want to “pass that forward”.

My passion is in sharing skills – through classes, intimate groups and individual tuition.  I am based in Watford and run classes in Hertfordshire, North Lincolnshire and Wiltshire.  I can also come to you

I would love to share that passion with you
