I had a great day out on the crafts afloat boat. A delicious lunch with wine was supplied nearby and we went home with beautiful pieces of felt work. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Thankyou so much for a wonderful day crafting with you. You helped me create a mosaic picture that I love (I'm about to post some pics for you to see it now it's all dry & grouted). Thankyou again x
