  1. Had an absolutely brilliant weekend on card making course. Yvonne your designs are fabulous! The Wilton Hotel was a great location for the course. Food was great and my room was huge!! I found the weekend great value for the fun and cards we made. Great to meet other crafters who shared great ideas. Looking forward to the next weekend. Linda Garland

  2. Hi Yvonne, Unfortunately I was only there all day Saturday but I enjoyed it so much. It was the best value I've got in a long time. Love all my goodies!!! All the ladies were truly lovely and I hope to meet with them again very soon. Roberta is an absolute gem. I will be keeping an eye out for your next class. You are so full of inspiration and I thank you so so much Edel X.

Thanks again Yvonne and Roberta for an amazing weekend, you ladies thought of everything! we were really happy with the hotel the location, accommodation, food, entertainment, the company the laugh and the value for money.

  7. Hi Yvonne,
    Really enjoyed the card class on Saturday morning. A pity my time only allowed one sessionI thought it was good value for the time and the cards we made. (Beautiful cards)
    Thanks again for an enjoyable class.

  8. Hi Yvonne, hope you have recovered from a brilliant week-end. Josie and I really did enjoy it. It was great to meet you, Roberta and all the ladies. You and the ladies we met were so helpful and accommodating and we did learn a lot. The venue was brilliant , food excellent, staff helpful and rooms v comfortable. The' more support table' was brilliant and we are grateful to you and all for your sharing, assistance and advice to us.
    The music and singing was purely so enjoyable . It is an understatement to say we got more than than what was paid for, real value for money. It was a pleasure to meet you and view your experience, passion and commitment to craft and crafters. I hope to join your day and maybe the next week-end dates permitting.
    Regards Eileen
