Really lovely and well made
Sid is a real asset to anyone's Christmas world. The stitching, as usual, is second to none. The character oozing from the snowman. A wonderful self-treat or xmas gift and who superb to be giving back at the same time.
I bought Gerry for a present ... but I don't think I can let him go now. The stitching is second to none as with all FCW products. Incredible skills by the stitchers and how wonderful to be giving back with each purchase.
I bought this as a little gift for my daughter. It is just as appealing as it looks in the photo. As a special decoration, would recommend.
This bear is beautiful - so well made and full of character - even better than the photograph.
Beautifully made and smell divine. If you're thinking of buying one - don't, get more than one. Buy one for yourself and one or more for gifts. You won't be disappointed.
This is a lovely felt snowman. Very detailed and skilfully made. Far too cheering just for Christmas.
I recently purchased two green and two blue Blithfield Oak Leaves cushions and am delighted with them
and with the workmanship.
The most cheerful and soft glass case! thank you, I don't lose my glasses anymore!
I loved my gingerbread person. It was very different, very charming- and the workmanship was wonderful. Great care had been taken!
I haven't used this company before, but very happy I did. Small items nicely made and perfect for Christmas. Thank you.
Love this cushion, beautifully worked and exactly what I wanted
I love my cushion! It is vibrant, finely crafted And full of character and looks so good on my leather, kitchen armchair. I appreciate the hours of work and the skill with which it was created. It is a beautiful thing and truly a joy forever.
The kit was beautifully presented and the canvas is printed to the highest quality enabling easy working. I am delighted with the results thus far and work daily to obtain a finished cushion to enjoy daily in my reading chair.
The Dodo is firmly in my sights as a follow on project!
Warm thanks to all who work towards producing such quality products, I shall recommend Fine Cell Work to friends without hesitation.
I absolutely love my new green oak leaves cushion. It has inspired me to repaint my whole sitting room bright green! I love it and the story behind it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
