"The felted robin kit was a delight to make. There is plenty of wool to make several robins. I copied the design onto tracing paper before I started so that I could reproduce the design on my own fabric afterwards. So far I have made three robins!
The video tutorial is first class. It is well filmed, very clear and friendly, and speeds up from time to time when a technique is being repeated so you don't get bored or have to fast forward yourself.
I would thoroughly recommend this kit. It also arrived very promptly. Thank you! "

" Hello Ann. Thank you so much for your lovely review! It’s hugely appreciated. I’m delighted that you enjoyed it and that you managed to make use of your extra wool :). Please do let me know if you have any questions about felting 😊"
"The video instructions were faultless; very explicit and the wool worked exactly as Gwen the instructor was telling us and couldn’t be improved. The package of wool was very generous and I was able to make, as she said, four more. I would emphasise, as Gwen did, in taking your time when doing this work. Although this was my first needlefelt, I have worked with textiles; sewing machines; needles etc. So anyone who’s never picked up a needle before will be able to do this if they listen carefully about ‘use of the barbed needle’. Thoroughly enjoyed doing the work and will certainly be buying from Gwen again. "
"A fantastic course! What a lovely, friendly and patient lady Gwen is. Myself and my Mum thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and we came away with 2 beautiful robin’s at the end, despite never having needle felted before.
The kit was great quality, with plenty of wool and an extra needle. Everything we needed was supplied. Can’t recommend the course enough, would love to do another."
