Maker's bio

I am a professional milliner, making hats for formal and informal occasions - weddings, ladies day racing, bridal headpieces, fascinators and contemporary accessories etc. Millinery classes for students interested in exploring heritage techniques, making their own headpieces etc. were delivered pre-Covid in person exclusively for Craft Courses in my NE studio, as well as for a number of local organisations, and galleries. Please get in touch if you are interested in a 1:1 class via Zoom.

"Great idea for a kit. Ideal present. 5 stars is not enough some of the best customer service I have had. Margaret kept me informed and was so helpful in adapting my delivery instructions."

" Thanks so much Sheena, both for your order and the great review! As an artisan maker all feedback is appreciated and such positive feedback is very rewarding. I do hope the kit is everything Santa could have wished for, too! Happy Christmas to you and yours Margaret"

L. Scullion reviewed: Craft Kit – Make your own handmade Tartan flower with a Petersham Bow

"Very well presented kit with all materials and tools needed. Despite being French so English is my second language the instructions were clear and detailed, easy to follow. I'm very pleased with the end result and it was enjoyable to make it too!"

Margaret Woodliff Wright Millinery responded:

" Hello Laurence Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am very pleased that you enjoyed the kit so much, and hope that you will enjoy wearing your brooch through the seasons. All best wishes Margaret"

Bea reviewed: Craft Kit – Make your own handmade Tartan flower with a Petersham Bow

"I chose my colour combination and it is perfect for my jacket. I received this kit and completed it in less than an hour. I am so pleased with my brooch. Excellent product. The purchase form needs to be updated so that you can put your colour choices on the form. This would eliminate the emails that are required to sort this out. The seller is super efficient and wants to you to get your product ASAP, but I don't read my email daily, so any delay in getting your product is caused by this."

Margaret Woodliff Wright Millinery responded:

" Hello Bea Thank you very much for your review, I am so pleased you have enjoyed your kit, both making your tartan flower and wearing it! I know that the brilliant admin team at CraftCourses are working hard to respond to all the challenges that the current situation has thrust upon us all, and I’m sure that they will look at updating the purchase form to enhance the site’s functionality if at all possible. In the meantime I thought you would like to know that I am continuing to develop new concepts for hobby millinery kits so you can make your own small headpieces for when those weddings and special events finally get the go ahead. I will be listing these kits in due course on my Craft Courses page. Thanks again for your review Margaret"

Helen Collinson reviewed: Divine Dahlia - felt headpiece

"Another great day with Margaret learning how to make a lovely flower headpiece. This workshop had a relaxed feeling. Having said that, we needed to crack on to get it completed. I came away more than satisfied. I love learning with Margaret and am a big fan of her work and her courses. Looking forward to learning new techniques with her in the near future."

Margaret Woodliff Wright Millinery responded:

" Thanks Helen, I really appreciate your review. We had a lovely day - very relaxed with lots of focussed concentration producing a great result! Great with your hair colour too! Thanks again for joining me up in NE67, this time, for your day course. See you soon. Margaret"
