Yet again a wonderful day with a wonderful lady.
I cannot speak highly enough of Denise and her expertise, but I think I keep coming back because of the fun and relaxed atmosphere she creates too. If I could do it every week I would.
Looking at the perfectly formed little animals on the table may feel daunting, but you end up creating something with its own personality in your own style. A challenge, but one that is pleasurable with an outcome you will be proud of for years to come.

Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you so much for such another fantastic review Kitten, very much appreciated! It was so lovely to see you and your mum again, great fun to spend the day with you, Dx
Wow, what a wonderful day making Harold the hare!
I didn’t realise what a fantastic day this would be.
I must say I can’t remember the last time I used my hands to be creative, so I’m an absolute beginner at needle felting. Denise was very patient, methodical and attentive and I came away feeling proud of my attempt at the end of the day.
What a whimsical setting the workshop is in too.
Plenty of refreshments and generous amounts of delightful cakes!

Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you Sandra for such a lovely review - it was a fun day and your little hares was gorgeous, I particularly liked the white detail on his little cardigan, very original! I hope you go on to do more needle felting, Dx
What a wonderful day spent learning this new skill. Denise was brilliant as our teacher and host. Our new little doggy friends, Dolly and Cedric are safely home and impressing all who see them.
We would highly recommend the workshop for any ability as Denise is there on hand to help sort you out.
Many thanks for the wonderful day and lovely homemade cakes.

Response from Crafty Gal:SO thrilled you both enjoyed your day - your little dogs were gorgeous, you really captured the characters. I look forward to seeing pics of your next projects! Always here if you need a steer, just drop me an email, Denise x
What a fun and creatively productive day. The atmosphere was relaxed and every now and again, it went very quiet while we all concentrated on our woodland creatures as they gradually developed their own character. It has inspired me to find out more about the craft. Would strongly recommend to anyone.

Response from Crafty Gal:Tracie it was a pleasure to spend the day with you, so happy you loved needle felting and can't wait to see what you make next! Dx
My friend and I attended the course last week at Bonds. We both made the hare. Denise is brilliant, very friendly and helpful and patient. She taught us lots of different skills needed to make the hare. Felting is great fun and everyone managed to complete a very detailed cute hare. Lunch was delicious. The day is relaxed and great fun, we are planning our next course to learn some more advanced skills.

Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you for the fantastic review Hilary! It was lovely to meet you both and spend the day needle felting with you - your hares were SO cute. I'm looking forward to seeing you both again to take your needle felting to the next level, Dx
Had a great day felting a fox, Denise was the perfect tutor. I had never done this before and was amazed that I made a little fox. I shall be carrying on with this as a new hobby, my aim is to needle felt a beagle one day.
Great course I would recommend it to anyone. I learnt so much.
Thank you Denise.

Response from Crafty Gal:Thanks Jackie! So happy you enjoyed your day and want to keep needle felting - don't forget to email me some pics of your next project! Hope to see you again, Dx
My good friend and I attended Denise’s needle felting workshop yesterday. It was such a good day. I enjoyed every minute. I’ve never done anything like it before. Denise was great at explaining everything step by step and we both made the most amazing felted hare. I really can’t believe that I actually made such a lovely little character. We’ve been busy today checking out the next class that we can attend.... I can’t wait. Thank you Denise.
TREENA HESTER - - #19554
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you so much Treena! I'm really looking forward to seeing you both again, and meeting your little foxes! A world of needle felting awaits you! Dx
WOW!! What a superb day!
Denise is a fantastic tutor who helped me to create a real gem, my little felted dog! The studio was warm, stylish and welcoming with loads of tea and yummy home made cake.
All the materials are provided and Denise helps with clear instruction for every stage.
I also bought one of the fabulous kits that she sells, such great value with everything needed to create another creature or 3!!
... oh & not to forget Archie - gorgeous!!!🥰👍🏻🥂
Wendi Bowron Weller - - #19260
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you so much Wendi for the fantastic review - I'm so excited you're now so exited about needle felting! Can't wait to see your second dog when it's finished - just email me if you need a steer on anything. Have fun! Dx
I had absolutely no experience of this craft (or any other come to that!) and had a really enjoyable day. It was relaxed, friendly and I came away with a little felted hare full of personality!
Thank you Denise, it was lovely to be together with my friends and acquire a new skill at the same time. Thoroughly recommended.
Mandy Guest - - #19223
Response from Crafty Gal:I am SO happy you enjoyed your day Mandy, and glad you all had such a nice time meeting up. Hopefully it's inspired you to do more needle felting too! All the best Dx
Three of us wanted to have a get together and do something crafty and we hit on Denise's felting workshop. It was lovely; we all came away with our completed woodland creature which was so satisfying to make and complete in one day! Denise is very friendly and helpful and the setting - Denise's studio - was very quiet and relaxed with so much in the way of crafting materials around to inspire! The cake was delicious as well! Thank you, Denise!
Bernadette Reeve - - #19221
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you so much Bernie for the fantastic review! You were a great group and I'm thrilled you had such a fun time needle felting with me - the start of many woolly projects to come for all of you I hope! Remember I'm here if I can help with anything you go on to! Have fun! Dx
Fabulous day with Denise needle felting dogs. Excellent patient tution, with lots of encouragement and guidance. All on our course had very limited knowledge of the craft and we all came away with fantastic results. Who could have believed that three bits of florist wire and a handful of wool could be made into a image of your dog. The workshop was a joy and the homemade treats delicious. Many thanks Denise.
Mary Lloyd - - #19209
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you Mary for the feedback, it was such fun to spend the day with three sisters! And your dogs were so good, I hope you keep the needle felting up! Here if you need any advice. Dx
What a lovely way to spend a day! Inspiring surroundings, great, relaxed teaching by Denise who assured us that the piece of florist wire we started with, would, at the end of the day, be transformed into our beautiful pet dogs. With her unobtrusive guidance our workshop of newbie felters were all delighted with the results. Would highly recommend. Thank you Denise.
Sally - - #19203
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you so much for the fantastic feedback Sally, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your day and were thrilled with your miniature Daisy! Dx
A lovely day - thank you Denise. The number of us on the course was ideal - a small group so we all had chance to have individual guidance and it was also fun to chat while we worked. The tuition was excellent and it's given me some new ideas/techniques to take my needle felting forward. I was very proud of my results and Henrietta Hare will inspire me to try more things now. Hope to see you on another course soon.
Linda Trotman - - #19054
Response from Crafty Gal:SO pleased you enjoyed your day Linda! Look forward to seeing what you go on to next using all the tricks of the trade from yesterday! Enjoy! Dx
THe Setting was lovely, as was Denise. Very patient and such a good teacher.
The course is very good value for money and unlike some courses it is something that you can go home and carry on creating without too much expence. Denise gives good information on where to souce materials for your next creation. I purchased some while I was with her, (at a very reasonable price) so that I didn't have to wait for more materials to be delivered.
Thank you for an excellent day and a new craft for me to further my creativity.
Sarah Dinnick - - #18316
Response from Crafty Gal:SO pleased you're carrying on Sarah, look forward to seeing what you do next! Great to meet you and fun to needle felt with you.
What a wonderful, inspiring day!
A novice needle felter, under Denise's calm, kind and skilled instruction, I made my very own Harry Hare.
Lovely setting at Bonds, with wonderful lunch and cakes.
Denise is knowledgable, professional and so welcoming and friendly. With really helpful advise from initial booking, throughout the day and afterwards- she created a fun and relaxing atmosphere for a truly creative day.
Thank you so much, Kay x
Kay Bridgeman - - #18311
Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you so much for the fantastic review Kay - so pleased you enjoyed your day!
I had a brilliant day needle felting yesterday. Denise and the ladies were great and we had lots to talk about while we were working on our fox/hares. Would recommend this course, I really enjoyed it. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and even if we did make a mistake it was eaily rectified. Everyone really likes my fox. Hes got pride of place on my mantle peice at the moment. Definately going to continue to needle felt. Thank you Denise.
Sue - - #17817
Fabulous day with CraftyGal. Having made my own gorgeous 'hare' to take home at the end of the workshop was a bonus. CraftyGal is patient and makes learning how to felt easy. Highly recommended!
Sandra Grayson - - #17812
Absolutely loved my day needle felting with Denise. I was amazed at how well my hare turned out but im sure thats all down to Denises patience and guidance. I have definitely caught the bug and have been busy creating friends for my hare with the amzing starter kit that i got from Denise. I cant recommend this workshop highly enough!
Hannah Hamer - - #17729
Thank you for a great day. I would definitely recommend Denise's needle felting course.
Denise is a great teacher and very skilled at what she does.
As the first man to attend Denise's workshop, I would suggest a new tag line for your advertising... "Needle Felting is for Real Men!"
Thanks & Best wishes
