Thanks Maggie,

It is always lovely to have you with us and you are so complementary of everyone else's work as well. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and we hope to see you again in the new year - I will promise to sort out a dog course as soon as I can.


A really enjoyable day last Sunday, 25th November. Great venue and a friendly group of fellow stabbers. I have made a few 3d felt animals already, but wanted to do a picture this time. Lots of help and advice available and I came away with a picture of a robin that I was well on the way to finishing and feeling quite pleased with my efforts. Plenty of coffee and biscuits and made to feel welcome by all in spite of it being my first time there and not knowing anyone else. Thankyou all for a lovely day.

Thank you Margaret, I am glad you were able to feel so relaxed and welcomed within the group. We work hard to ensure a happy smile when entering - even with the road works and rugby match on! I look forward to seeing your finished Robin - your artistic eye certainly captured the subtle colour changes and the fibre you had was beautiful. We hope to see you again soon x

Thank you so much, it is lovely that you have found us just around the corner so to speak! it is highly addictive and next time you come I will bring some of the plastic that I was talking about. Dont forget Santa can fill a sack with us if needed. We will be back on the 8th even if you do not want to do the workshop but pop in to do a request list we will be happy to see you! I have some of the needle holders in stock as well now. I would love to see your finished picture once you have the beads sewn on as well. Your flowers were wonderful and you were very open to try new things which was fantastic - we hope to see you with us again soon x

Loved the class and learned so much. We got to know the names of the different wool and needle sizes. Some of us made pictures while others made hares. Help and advice was on hand whenever we needed it . I started off with a section of core wool which I transferred into a lovely hare (much to my surprise). There were people new to felting like myself and people who have been before and wanted to do more. Tea, coffee and biscuits were made available and all we needed was a packed lunch. I would highly recommend the courses as Rachael is an amazing teacher.

thank you so much Kay, I am glad you enjoyed it so much. It is always nice to see different projects coming to life in the same room. There is such a lovely magical transformation as the wool takes shape and suddenly there is a creature there in front of you! We look forward to seeing you on the 8th December.

A superb day from start to finish. I wasn't sure what to expect and, attending by myself, was a little nervous but what a fantastic day! I met a lovely group of ladies and we shared our learning, our biscuits and some gossip too! I created a gorgeous needle felted hare, yes me, I made it! Rach is a great teacher, patient and kind, explaining everything in a clear way and often several times! I would highly recommend a course with Heartfelt 2 Inspire, I think I may be a bit hooked!

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:

Thank you so much Louise, I am blushing!! I know how hard it is to come in to somewhere new on your own and I am glad we were able to make you feel welcome. Yes you made a superb hare and your daughter seemed very happy with your lunchtime progress. I cannot apologise for hooking you but I hope that we will see you again in the new year and take you further along on your journey.

Have a fabulous Christmas and New Year

Another great day with lovely company. Thanks to Rachel and Rhian for their patience and really helpful advice. I'm learning new skills every time!

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:

Thank you so much Julia, it is always such a pleasure to have you with us. Your dog was beautiful and so good that now I need to find time to put another dog workshop on! You have half the ladies at least very envious of your creation. I hope the recipient of your card appreciates your efforts as well. It was beautiful!
See you in the New Year for the bag course!

A great way to spend a day! This was my first attempt at needle felting and I was able to produce a nice 2d picture that I will be proud to hang on my wall. I was instantly made to feel welcome and the level of instruction was perfect.

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:

Your picture was amazing and a great interpretation of your piece of at you had with you. I am so glad that after the chaos of all the traffic and road works that were going on that you were able to relax and enjoy yourself.

You were very keen to explore the colours and experiment which was a great way to create your finished result. I am pleased we made you feel very welcome and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

A totally fabulous day. Thank you so much for a lovely day. We learnt so much and it was great to spend time with family. We loved being able to just explore at our own pace and play with all the fibre. The mince pies were a lovely bonus!

Will be coming again soon

It was a fantastic day and I am glad you all had such a good time and we will see you again next month.

I would not hesitate to recommend this course! :) Such an informative and fun experience. This was my first time doing any kind of craft and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A very relaxing and rewarding experience.

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:

Thank you Emma, It was a fabulous workshop and always good to see what everyone is able to produce. Lovely to see everybody slowly relax and be willing to try lots of different things along the way. Also to be able to see what others are doing and learn from each other. We hope to see you soon x

Thank you so much for such an enjoyable course. After trying to teach myself (rather unsuccessfully, it has to be said!) needle felting from kits, it was a joy to discover that I could achieve a finished product without using polystyrene balls!
I was delighted with my finished dog and frankly amazed at what I achieved within the timeframe!
Rachel and Rhian were fab-excellent instructors and were warm and friendly and made everyone feel very welcome. I would thoroughly recommend attending one of these courses.

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:

Wow, thank you Alison. Your cat was easily recognisable as a cat. I am glad we were able to renew your confidence and inspire you to keep going with felting. We also now have made sure we have a supply of reading glasses available for the close up work to try and help there as well!

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Really enjoyed my day with Rachel and Rhian learning to make a needle felt dog. I felt that the course was excellent value for money and that the tuition was superb. Can't wait to see what courses are available in September.

Response from Heartfelt 2 Inspire:

Thank you Cathy for such kind words! We now have the new courses available for you to choose from as promised. We are so glad you had a good day and enjoyed the process and the final result. Hope to see you soon.

I had never done any felting at all before this workshop. I was delighted to have produced a landscape which my husband immediately recognised as Three Cliffs Bay. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Many thanks to Rachel and Rhian for such a productive day.

Hi Wendy,

I am so glad your husband recognised the image . You produced a beautiful piece of work and were a joy to work alongside. We hope to see you soon and at the festival of Stitch. I have your colours ready for you to look at for your next project!

Best Wishes

Thank you so much Nicky!

I am glad you had a good day and look forward to seeing more photos of your lovely badger. Remember we are here if you need any more support please get in touch.

This was my second skills workshop with Heartfelt 2 Inspire I was made to feel very welcome. I have learnt new skills in felting, along with discovering I also like the look of wet felting.
Rachel is a kind and patient tutor, as I am a qualified question asker!
I will be pleased to recommend these workshops to anyone who want to try this interesting form of working with wool.
I will be returning.
Many Thanks to Rachel and her team.

Who knows what we will create next time!
