“This was my first attempt at needle painting and I was really pleased with the results.  Tanja’s instructions were really detailed and explained the technique really well.  Her feedback on the work in progress was extremely helpful and greatly improved the look of the finished pansy”

"This was a great class.  Enjoyed learning this technique and am anxious to take another thread painting class to improve my technique"

"I really enjoyed stitching my Purple Pansy and am proud of the results.  Participating in the on-line class was a good learning experience for me.  The instructions were so well written that I felt I had Tanja at my elbow with each stitch.  Although I would not miss a chance to take a class with a teacher I often find I have trouble keeping up and sometimes go home confused.  With the on-line format I was able to work at my own pace and refer back to the instructions and pictures when I needed extra help.

Through tips, tricks and instructions I learned how to work easily with my frame clamped to a table, how to stitch using both hands, the correct angle of the needle to place the stitch in exactly the right spot, how to use a ruler when needed to help control the angle of the stitches, and how to compensate ("sneaky stitch") so that my flower petals would not become fans!  I now feel confident to tackle other thread painting projects."

"I thoroughly enjoyed this purple pansy on-line course and learned more than I can ever put into words. I have not done crewel-type work in 30 years and this was my first attempt at getting back to it. Tanja's instructions and supportive and caring attitude and email messages made all the difference for me. So, too, did the comments from the other students. I felt as if I was in a workshop environment with friends and colleagues. Now I'd like to try another course and work on my skills. Thanks, Tanja, for a wonderful experience. I even find myself looking at real pansies with an entirely different eye"

"Fabulous way to learn and to perfect your shading, stem stitch, and long and short stitch.  Tanja provides detailed instructions and helpful critiques."

"I had wanted to take one of Tanja's classes ever since I found her site while surfing the web.  The minute I saw her creations I was fired to learn how to follow her technique and  I wasn't disappointed.  The best things about her course was the clear instructions in combination with the profuse illustrations.  The photographs and diagrams were of immense help in guiding me and her instructions were written in a direct manner that I sometimes wish other instructors could emulate.  In addition to these tools were her encouraging e-mails in prompt response to questions posed by members of the class.  I loved the one about how to keep your cat off your stitching.  She has a sense of humor too.  My greatest  recommendation is that I have already signed to take more courses from her."

"I really loved doing the Purple Pansy online course - the first online course I've ever taken. Long & short has intimidated me for many years. I now know that, although it may take me many more to master it, I'll enjoy the journey. Tanja Berlin prepared a clearly presented, do-able course. She expertly guided me through the lessons; and was always there to answer my questions, give encouragement and point out how and where to improve my work. Thank you! "

"The Purple Pansy class was my second online class with Tanja and that helped me feel more confident attempting this challenging technique! She provides thorough instruction with photos that really make it seem as if she is there helping her students through the course. For this class, I would recommend good magnification and an excellent light source"
