    While I can NOT listen to Elenor Burns, I do watch her show (with volume off) and have learned a lot from her.

    Our Quilt Guild is fortunate to have Carol Armstrong as a member. She is an inspiration to us all.

    Eleanor Burns gets on my nerves too, but I try to remind myself she was a kindergarten teacher once upon a time. That's why she "instructs" like that.

    Eleanor Burns, she is so much fun to watch! I first saw her on TV back in the early 90's, before I really started quilting (only a baby quilt under my belt). I thought she was crazy, like a kid in a candy store, and getting way to excited over cutting fabric. She gave me a good laugh. Now 20 years & many quilts later I enjoy watching her and feel motivated to use my rotary cutter. :)

    I took a class with Eleanor and really had a lot of fun.

    Elly Sienkewicz was a great teacher also.

    Elly is one teacher on my bucket list. I am hoping to go to appliqué academy one day when the kids are older.

    Eleanor Burns. Once I got used to her I love her and her methods which taught me so much. She has free videos of her shows on her website.

    Eleanor Burns is one, I think she is a hoot, so bright and cheerful. I have also watched Nancy Zieman, a Wisconsin lady, have a few DVDs ofher.

    I've learned more here in the past 2 months, then reading a book or watching a show on TV.

    I totally agree - the tutorials on here are very well done. Just saw a post earlier referencing a Cathedral Windows tutorial Eddie did....I'm looking for a new project and that one is very tempting :thumbup:

    Nancy Zieman because good quilts come from good sewing. I like her no-nonsense approach. She is all about the teaching. She wants me to be successful. Even after all these years, still cares about doing a good job.

    Eleanor Burns is one of my favorites for sure! It's funny that some of you find her tone/voice annoying. I find her very soothing and down to earth. It's like getting quilting help from my mother. :D

    Kay Turner at my LQS. She was my instructor for paper-piecing and politely placed the tape dispenser next to me during the lesson. LOL. Then I took her mitering class which empowered me to make my bindings all in one piece and my miters look great.
