"After many years of working at a very demanding job, I decided with encouragement from my husband and family, to use my crafting talents and start up a business where not only could I work from home, but that I enjoyed. The first two years were tough and I didn’t think I would make it but with perseverance and the love of my family, I carried on. A few years later and here I am now teaching others the enjoyment of felting. I love felting and despite many a pricked finger, I started to make things I could sell. I had enormous help from the people at craft fairs and found that the community of crafters was a wonderful place. I really enjoy what I do and that helps me pass on the passion and enthusiasm in my classes. It is always a great pleasure to hear that my students have enjoyed their lessons and want to book for their second class."
