Why We Love Jennifer's Classes

Inspiration & Satisfaction

As a repeat student of Jennifer Sampou, I appreciate and enjoy her ability to combine heartfelt instruction with color play magic.

She includes inspiring instruction on how the value and intensity of color is an intricate part of a beautiful textile project. Her easy going and ‘have fun’ approach to the skills in a class help ease student anxiety about challenging tasks.

I have always felt a great sense of accomplishment when creating a quilt or table runner in her classes.

Positivity, Creativity, & Encouragement

I have taken many classes (4+) from Jennifer and am always eager to be a student in whatever class she offers.

The positive energy she shares along with her attention to student needs makes her an inspiring and helpful teacher.

She is mindful of the whole process of creativity and encourages students to be aware of and use their individual gifts and ideas to produce a unique piece of work.


Today was awesome. I love how authentic you are in the videos and I feel like I am right there with you. Other recorded classes I have taken felt too produced, but love yours. The playing with color was awesome and listening in and seeing you work with each of us was very helpful. In a traditional class this is sometimes done 1 on 1 but on Zoom it was great to learning from each person. Even though I have been sewing for over 11 years your tips for sewing and pressing were a great refresher. I look forward to watching it again looking at (and trying)  the matchstick quilting.
