  • review rating 5  Fab shop full of stuff which Gail has lovingly made. I've also been to 2 needlefelting workshops with Gail. She is a fantastic teacher - very patient, helpful and generous. Everything is explained very clearly and Gail always has plenty of examples of work for inspiration.

I bought some lovely gifts and picked up a workshop list. I will be getting booked on workshops very soon as I can’t wait to be a part of the creativity!

  • review rating 4  Was really looking forward to my needle felting class on Sunday, was late but Gail was super about it. Nice relaxed and informal setting, great tuition and lots of encouragement from Gail who is very welcoming and easy going. So many ideas and thoughts to progress beyond the course but more classes needed to carry those forward. Can't wait for next class. Thanks Gail Pam Wilson

  • review rating 5  Thank you Gail for a very enjoyable and relaxing evening spent at your needle felting workshop. I have always wanted to have a go at needle felting and was pleased to discover that you were holding workshops in your beautiful new shop just around the corner. I am delighted with my little robin and will certainly be back again to try another craft.
