  1. Donelle was a great inspiration for attendees while demonstrating the Westalee rulers in our booth at the International Quilt Festival-Chicago 2016. She is very knowledgeable about the Westalee products!. Our booth was extremely busy during the 3-day festival and Donelle handled the crowds and questions in a professional and timely manner. GREAT JOB, Donelle!

  2. Donelle presented at our shop in the Western New York area (4) Open House sessions over a two-day period. She was prepared, most knowledgeable, enthusiastic, kind, eager to answer questions and so much more . . . in two words, “absolutely amazing”! Since we had never hosted an event such as this, she was invaluable to us as shop owners . . . giving helpful information every step of the way. Donelle definitely wanted us to be successful! Thanks so very much, Donelle!

  3. Customers have been hearing about quilting with templates so it was the perfect time to offer this class. Donelle came prepared with a projector and a camera to make it easier for class participants to see what she was doing. Her samples were impeccable and impressive, her demonstrations amazing and relevant, her lighthearted manner and sense of humor made it all so fun and enjoyable! My customers left not only buying but raving about the experience. Thank you Donelle.

  4. We had a fabulous event with Donelle here at High Country Quilts in Colorado Springs! We had 2 days of true education and fun! We are already planning our next event with her! Thank you Donelle!

  5. Just saw you for the first time on Quilting Arts with Susan. Can’t wait to start getting some templetes/rulers!
