Hi, I’m Sheena Roberts

Experienced quiltmaker, teacher & pattern designer

I am so excited to see you here.  I hope that you find the information you are looking for, but if not – just drop me a message. Beginner or experienced seamstress, I believe that everybody can learn to quilt.

Whether you are new to patchwork and quilting, or looking to extend your skills, you are bound to find something of interest here. 

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” – so let’s work together and make the world altogether more piece-ful.

ps – If you would like to see what others think, you will find a few reviews at the bottom of each page.


Sheena is a first class teacher, breaking tasks down, giving structured, clear guidance.

Just attended my fourth course with Sheena at Rope Walk, Barton. The two days flew by! Sheena is a first class teacher, breaking tasks down, giving structured, clear guidance. At the same time her enthusiasm shines and her flexibility of approach allowed me to work at my own pace and put my own stamp on my work. Thank you Sheena, can’t wait for the next time, Clare

"Is it not fantastic to have your creative needs met?

Well, that is what happens when attending a VIP session with Sheena!
She encourages, allows experimentation, teaches whilst playing along and shares freely from her obvious wealth of experience. At the end of my afternoon with Sheena I virtually skipped home, pleased as punch with the result of my newly acquired skill. Thank you so much Sheena. Can not wait for the next time!

"Fantastic day ............ Good Value for Money

This was an enjoyable course and good value for money.
The organisation was superb despite the difficulties of being on line. The great thing was that all the instructions and list of material needed were provided prior to the course so you felt well prepared for the day. Sheena’s instructions were very clear but I did manage to get in a mess as I have spatial awareness issues. Sheena was excellent in providing me with 1:1 tuition within the group and my work was a great success. She also advised me on my machine problems!  She was able to provide everyone with the time they needed and her group demonstrations within the day were very easy to follow. The class was relaxed and chatty and it almost made it feel like we were all in the same room. Fantastic day! I will be back!

I look forward to more patchwork and quilting in the future. Once again many thanks”.
