Evaluations from the latest John C. Campbell class, January 2012:

"Great class, I learned so much!"

"Linda is very knowledgeable - giving, hardworking, funny and passionate about felting and making sure everyone gets what they need as instruction and help. Working late and instructing all the while. Very grateful she will come here and teach an intense and demanding project."

"Exceptionally informative. I'll be a better teacher because of this class, with new ideas to pass on to students. Linda worked tirelessly to give us all the individual attention we needed. Hope this class will be back in the future."

"Linda Veilleux is an excellent, exuberant, friendly instructor. Her personality is wonderful for teaching. She should teach at JCC again."

"Linda's class gets better every year - she listens to students and improves the process explanation and continually watches the class to check on everyone's comprehension and progress."

"Linda is the most talented, involved, patient and skilled instructor of a very technical process. All her knowledge and experience was very generously shared, making everyone in the workshop have a very successful project. Hope very much to see her as a teacher at JCCFS again soon."

"Good job getting Linda Veilleux. She's the Best of the Best! She allows you to explore your imagination and make it become a reality."
