Our Customers Matter


We want to delight participants and always seek to provide excellent course content and a memorable experience... 

"A huge thank you from me, absolutely loved my 2 days, could have gone on for another week at least!" "A super course, Alison is a wonderful relaxed teacher with so much knowledge, and Kate’s meals were just delicious - ate far too much! Definitely hope to be back for the next phase" "Wow! What an utterly brilliant couple of days that was. My learning curve was huge - guided by Alison’s wisdom, sense of humour and immense knowledge. I just couldn’t believe my progress over two days. Katie - your cooking was so delicious which added to the whole joyful experience" "What a joy this weekend was, excellent teaching in beautiful relaxed surroundings. Kate's food was 5*. I will definitely be going again." "I was a bit concerned that my skills wouldn't be up to this course. However with both the good instruction and a friendly helpful atmosphere I need not be worried. I came away from the course with the best thing that I have ever sewn and am very pleased with it." "I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Tig’s Barn. The tutor was really knowledgeable and a skilled teacher. I certainly learnt a lot, and feel encouraged to move on to the next level. The setting was lovely, with good natural light, and the refreshments on offer were top notch! All in all a great experience. Thanks Tig’s Barn!" "I have just been a participant on a Patchwork & Quilting course at Tig's Barn and I found it to be thoroughly enjoyable weekend from all aspects" "Our tutor was so approachable and knowledgeable and I left with a great sense of  satisfaction for what I'd achieved" "I would thoroughly recommend this course in such a lovely setting, my appetite is whetted to practice my newly acquired skills" "Thank you for a lovely, enjoyable weekend. Learnt lots and the lunch and refreshments were amazing" “ Thank you for two brilliant days of tuition on the quilting course at Tig’s Barn, which is in such a beautiful location. I had never learnt how to quilt properly, and Alison’s warm, encouraging and inspirational guidance made the two days so enjoyable, and has sparked a real desire in me to carry on. All this was helped along by the delicious homemade biscuits and yummy lunches - I can highly recommend them!” "What a wonderful time on this course in a superb setting. Alison our instructor was so encouraging and packed so much in to two days that the time flew by. I can’t wait to return for other workshops and feel inspired to practice, practice, practice. Thank you."
