Eleri reviewed: Buttercups and Daisies Textile Wreath with Debra Thompson

"Loved making this and met some lovely ladies. The course finished at 3pm instead of the advertised 4pm. This extra hour was needed to finish the work. Nevertheless I would recommend this workshop as it was a very relaxing and fun day."

Nola Levy reviewed: Needle Felted Bee Class with Beccy Paget

"Simply Fantastic! I had no previous experience of needle felting but this day was a joy from beginning to end. My mobility issues were accommodated with no issues, and I couldn't have received a warmer welcome. Beccy is a delight and very knowledgeable, and patient and gave me real confidence in my ability and offered brilliant after support if required too. I'm hoping to do further courses as Busy Bees is such a wonderful place, it really is a pleasure to go there, and has made me really enthusiastic to carry on needle felting."

Busy Bees Patchwork Ltd responded:

"So pleased you enjoyed your day Nola. Sorry I was a while replying I was having a few problems with the email?? Any way hope you will come along again and I would love to see your finished cushion. Have a great weekend Beccy"
