Sorry for not responding earlier Gaynor, but I have been away.
I really enjoyed the course and in wonderful surroundings. The tutors were great and the other trainees were lovely.
With the help of the trainers I made a lovely bag which I will give to my mother for Mothers Day.
Many thanks - the weekend was excellent.
Best wishes
