I heard or read about Zentangle as a way to practice mindfulness and that it could help with improving free motion quilting skills.  After I did some research on the internet, I found I could purchase a beginning Zentangle kit on-line.  However, when I discovered Suzzie’s Quilt Shop offered a beginning Zentangle class, I decided to sign up for a class instead – and that was a great decision!  The class was fantastic.  I learned about the Zentangle process, including some history and the simplicity of Zentangle.  Marisela is a wonderful instructor.  Not only was her presentation warm and friendly, but she was good at communicating what to do and why to do it.  She is clearly an experienced teacher and the personal touches she added to the class are things I couldn’t have gotten from a kit.  Most of all, her passion for Zentangle is contagious -- I am hooked!  I learned so much and was thrilled with the Zentangle tiles I created.  I highly recommend taking a class from Marisela!
