Jinny is the Master Aug 4, 2007
Jinny Beyer is the master of hand quilting. I find myself watching the videos over and over and over and over while I'm hand piecing. Are my hands just like hers? Where is her thimble pushing from? It's a great resource. Her book on hand piecing is also wonderful.

Iam extremely happy with this book, i have found it is so easy to read and it is very easy to understand what jinny beyer is trying to convey unlike a lot of quilting books.I was also very satisfied with the whole this site experience.As this was my first experience with internet shopping i was a bit nervous about the whole thing. Happily it was a great experience and hopefully the first of many.
Hand quilting start to finish May 12, 2007
I wanted to teach a class on piecing by hand and since I generally hand quilt but piece by machine I wanted to learn the real way it should be done. Of course this is the right book for learning the technique. Jinny Beyer is a master and really does an excellent job instructing in this book.
Hand Piecing with Jinny Beyer Jul 13, 2006
Top quality - which is what you would expect form Jinny Beyer. Top price - which you expect from her too. By time you buy the book, the CD and the tool you are out a bundle of cash that I would rather spend on fabric. But the 3 products compliment each other, the instructions are clear, the tool has the needed markings, the CD shows Ms Beyer in action. I'm slowly getting the hang of it and am pleased with the results. I just wish there was a package with all 3 (at a package price).
Actually 10 STARS!! Jinny Beyer is the Best!!(Period)!! May 15, 2006
I loved this CD, I had purchased the book, which I also loved, and had taped a show where she demonstrated her technique on "Simply Quilts" which was very helpful also. But, with the CD you get to see everything Up Close, and she Demonstrates beautifully, No wonder she Teaches, and is referred to as the Master in Hand Quilting. At first, I fumbled, and felt extremely Awkward in holding the needle and fabric the way she did, but once I started to hold the eye end of my needle against the thimble like she does, with in 2 to 3 hours, I couldn't believe I ACTUALLY STARTED TO "HAND PIECE" JUST LIKE JINNY!! IT WAS LIKE IT "CLICKED" AND I WOULD NEVER, GO BACK TO THE SLOW AND UNEVEN WAY OF HAND PIECING AGAIN!! Also, for the reviewer, who couldn't find the Genesis Quilt Pattern, its right there under Genesis, with Templates and all. As well as all other 8 Lessons. But, I can't stress enough, as long as you keep the eye end of the needle against your thimble and hold the fabric taught at all times as your moving along between those 2 fingers like she demonstrates, you too will be piecing faster and faster, and more accurately! just like Jinny!! with in very little time!!
