This cushion is beautifully stitched and so bright and colourful. It has been bought as a gift for a ‘relative of the north’ so hope she loves it too!
I bought two of these hearts as gifts for my nieces- they both absolutely loved them! The hearts themselves are beautifully made and stitched (and smell so good) and we all loved learning about Fine Cell Work.
Beautiful cushions, well made and embroidered.
The cushion was lovely and the work was excellent. It was a birthday present for my mother-in-law and she loved it. Thank you for all the great work!
I was looking for a gift for my Canadian grand daughter and this lovely purse was just right! I have previously purchased a pencil case so knew the quality would be excellent. Thank you!
i am absolutely delighted with this cushion. i am so grateful I can help this brilliant organisation in a small way. I have wanted one of these for ages - the design is perfect and the quality of the work is excellent.
We are thrilled with our pineapple cushion which has been beautifully executed and is much admired by everyone who sees it. It cost more than we would usually pay for a cushion but it is different from all the mass produced, cheaper ones we see around and also supports a very worthwhile cause. We also appreciate the hours of work that go into creating such a work of art. Recommended.
Bought 2 - love them
Really beautiful glasses case in a pattern that looks like the pink of greens of rhubarb to me!
Useful well finished glasses case, good fit, keeps glasses safe in my handbag, cheerful colours, would recommend
We are delighted with our cushions they look great and are really comfortable too. They can be wiped too which is great for outside cushions
The design is so cheerful they make me smile
Thanks to the stitchers who took time and care to make them.
Beautiful piece. Superb design and I especially love the velvet lining.
Almost fill in all of the area only have the background to do quite nice and easy to do thank you
Fantastic tapestry cushion . The needlework is so neat and the colours are fab !
I was looking for something personal and pretty and original for my mother to put her lipstick and eyebrow pencil in. In her handbag. Always looking for special things to cheer her up after my father’s recent death. She’s so special and so is the pencil case and detailed work.
