I absolutely loved the punch needle workshop! It was the perfect place for me to be. Great company, exceptionally well prepared class with a wonderfully gifted teacher in a bright and generous space.
It meant 'time out', me time and learning a new crafty skill as well.
I had chosen the sulphur crested cockatoo as in the picture to the left and it turned out just like this.
If your life is going a bit too fast consider getting back in touch with yourself and do this workshop. The choice of designs is delightful, actually hard to choose just one.
