"Joen's comprehensive course on color is THE best I've ever taken and makes so much more sense that any of the other so-called expertise that costs BIG bucks! Joen, your color wheel and how you teach the various aspects of color are incredible ... I see color differently, I see fabric differently...what a joy to finally understand where browns come from and why some work and others don't with a particular color scheme, for example ... I have begun designing quilts with my new understanding and it's a joyous venture!"
