What I loved most about Immersion: Not only did I learn the technical skills I needed for surface pattern design, I also joined the most amazing community of creatives. The support and encouragement from this community is unreal. Meeting other people who are excited about surface design has been the fuel I needed to propel myself […]

Immersion helped me do my ‘one thing a day’ related to what I’d like to be doing in the future instead of what I’m actually doing now. I’ve been working as a creative in the quilt and textiles industry for over 20 years now. I began as a lover of all things with a thread […]

At the age of 56, I found myself starting to worry about what would happen once I retired as I had no real ‘plan’ up to that point. I wanted to be able to do something that would bring in a little extra money to supplement our superannuation fund and our savings. I came across […]

Since Immersion, I’ve rethought my entire career and what I want to do going forward. I would encourage anyone to join Immersion, no matter their level. It was so helpful to get another creative person’s viewpoint and approach, as well as the creative peers. I’ve been a Textile Designer for 28 years but didn’t realize […]

Before doing the Immersion Course, I had been trying to self teach myself surface design from Skillshare videos. This was when I discovered Bonnie. I knew this one something I wanted to invest in. Shortly after completing the course I gave birth to my second child. This time around I had decided to make a […]

I would say to anyone considering joining Immersion, that it is worth the investment in yourself and, while there are difficulties in the course, you will come out on the other side with new skills and new ideas to grow your business. MY PATH TO IMMERSION: Before I found Bonnie and Immersion, I worked as […]

"It is refreshing to find Bonnie who is genuinely excited to share her knowledge with others. She feels that our success is a wonderful thing and it doesn't threaten her. I want to be a Bonnie in this world. I want to feel abundance, not scarcity. There is enough for everyone to succeed, and I want to help others find success.  Being in a community with that kind of thinking is priceless."

I feel encouraged to set bigger goals for myself, dream bigger, and truly believe that I can achieve them.”

Elizabeth Chappell

"The Immersion Course is incredibly comprehensive, providing you with all of the tools necessary to have a successful career in Surface Pattern Design. I had already taken all of Bonnie’s other classes when I signed up for her Immersion Course and wasn’t sure if there was that much more she could teach me. Boy, was I wrong."

I learned more skills, techniques and workflows. I also learned that there was a community of folks out there that we could all learn from, support and encourage each other."

...and I'm still coming back for more of Bonnie's content because it is so life giving and encouraging. I've been licensed in many industries including fabric, children's clothing, home decor and the outdoor industry."

In two years since taking immersion, I've been able to turn this passion of mine into a full time career.
