“I had the great pleasure of working along side Mary at our summer workshops and being a keen sewer myself I was honestly blown away by her creativity, skill and patience. She is a very skilled tutor, full of ideas and truly talented. She really inspired me to get my old sewing machine out again and get working on some new home furnishings myself! I am looking forward to working with her again and seeing what she is making next”. Amanda, Rural Antics Event Host.
