An excellent workshop which has enhanced my sewing and hat making skills.
Each workshop I do, I find a deeper love for creative time out.
Thanks to Kerry for patience and sharing all her knowledge.
Cannot wait for the next two day course I'm doing in Feb.

Brilliant day. Learnt so much more about blocking and feel so much more confident.
Kerry is such a patient teacher and we have learnt new skills after our third visit.
Also, I'm much more confident with sewing but something I still need to perfect.
Great inspiration!

I had a wonderful day making the flower decoration for my hat and it finishes it off beautifully.
You're a great teacher and can't wait to come back and join you for another workshop.

I had a lovely day with Kerry she was patient and very helpful. She answered lots of questions that i asked. I was made to feel very welcome and it was a very enjoyable and relaxed day. I was in hat heaven amongst all her lovely creations. I travelled from Lancashire and it was really worth it! Many thanks Kerry i hope to visit you again soon.👩‍🌾
