A fabulous workshop. Well organised from the get go. Welcoming and fun. Tge Happenstore provided a lovely, creative space. Our pack of materials and instructions were well thought out and just right for the project. Amy Jones was an excellent teacher, clear, friendly, inspiring. Her work is so gorgeous and she's very generous in sharing her knowledge, tips and inspiration.

Amy is a great teacher, very creative and with wonderful ideas to help people scared of a blank canvas. She is very patient a nd generous with her time and threads and imagination. This is my second course with Amy and I'll be booking in again.

Great location with good lighting, super friendly and patient teacher. Plenty of material available, also to take home at the end of the night to complete your piece! Loved it and would highly recommend.

Our embroidery workshop was a great way to spend an evening- fun & interesting guided by ever helpful Amy. We learned new ways with stitches & were able to work on a project that looked good from the start- due to Amy’s thoughtful cutting of threads & background preparation. 3 hours went way to quickly!
