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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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

“Oh such fun “a great day making Harry Hare. Denise is an excellent tutor who easily instilled confidence in our ability.
I felt a real sense of achievement as the felt transformed into my new long eared friend. I love learning new skills and meeting new like minded people with food and coffee included and this course certainly met all my criteria. Happy days.
Thanks so much Denise

As a complete newbie to needle felting I was impressed at how well my hare came out! This was obviously thanks to the wonderful ‘Crafty Gal’, Denise. She’s patient and helpful, working along side us to demonstrate needle felting clearly. A delicious lunch and afternoon tea provided by Bonds completed a wonderful day. Thank you so much Denise xx

As a beginner needlefelter I was delighted to find this one day workshop to learn new skills. Having had a go at making a few things I already had some understanding of how it works, but it was really good to have Danise's patient guidance in making a hare. I learned lots of new techniques - some of which I think are unique to Denise - and had a really lovely day at Bonds with my mother and husband also making hares. I feel inspired to do more needle felting and only pricked my finger a couple of times!

A brilliant morning and I enjoyed every minute. Denise was a lovely teacher and I was amazed that I produced something so nice! I am definitely hooked (no pun intended). Thank you!
Sally Hopkinson - - #16932
Response from Crafty Gal:You're very welcome Sally! SO pleased you enjoyed it and want to do more. You know where I am, would be great to see you on another workshop. Take care Dx
My sister is a real crafter and I often wish i was more like her! But I have arthritic fingers so when i saw this course I was excited but rather apprehensive as to whether I could do it!!! I shouldnt have worried! I had a fabulous fun morning! The time flew, Denise is such an encouraging tutor on hand to help when neccesary.
I came away wanting to book on another course - thank you.

Wow what a day in lovely surroundings, Denise was a great instructor and the results we had were fantastic. Will definitely be taking up this craft and will be looking to book further courses with Denise in the future.

Response from Crafty Gal:Thank you Carol for such a lovely review, so pleased you want to go more! Have fun and hopefully see you soon. x
I love trying new crafts, but needle felting looked a challenge. With Denise`s excellent tutoring and working in her fabulous craft room I was amazed how quickly my Hare (Petunia) appeared before my fingers...…...I will definitely do more. The Christmas classes look interesting. I will also look into the list of felt suppliers Denise kindly gave. Those winter days will be busy.
Jane Bailey - - #16718
Response from Crafty Gal:So pleased you enjoyed making your brooch Jane, and hope to see you again. In the meantime, happy needle felting! x
A wonderful day full of fun and laughter. Thanks Denise for your great teaching, I am so pleased with what I achieved and have already used my new skill making another hare. Many of my friends will be getting hares for their Christmas presents.
Ruth Lockyer - - #16658
Response from Crafty Gal:So happy you enjoyed your day! AND look forward to seeing pics of all those lovely Christmas pressies you make! Enjoy, x
Thank you Denise for a wonderful day! I loved it, can't believe I made my Hare, he's amazing! My husband loved him too! Xx

Response from Crafty Gal:How could anyone NOT love your hare Jayne?! Before he even got his head on we all adored him! You were such a hoot to spend the day with, I really hope you go on to do more needle felting - would love to see what you do next. Dx
