Really enjoyed it – very friendly and helpful leader – thanks very much!

Brilliant session, really informative and generous with the materials and help. Lovely to spend afternoon with others, crafting. Thank you!

Thank you. Lovely to do something new for myself rather than the children.

These brooches are stunning with a hint of vintage, accessories with beads and buttons! Watch out for a flock of bird brooches on display in Trowbridge and across Wiltshire or even beyond.

Thank you Jan. Such a pleasure to see more of your work and the link with all the georgous textiles. I love the colours and textures you use.

Excuberant and quirky!

So beautiful and orginial.
