Hi Renn and Di!
How are you both? Just to let you know I received my orders yesterday! Can’t
believe it is so quick! You told me you’re mailing it on the 6th and it
arrived on the 12th! That is something. The nice gift you enclosed is so
cute. It will make a good practice piece. It’s so nice of you to do it
when you really don’t need to. I really do appreciate it. Thank you, thank
The recent PayPal feature in your web is excellent. It will surely make
ordering super easy. Great idea.
Now I need to get back to practicing my stitches. At least I’m done with my
two quilts for my parish.
Take good care of yourselves. We need your creative juices flowing as they

I do think that the Fairy book is stunning and my students think so too.
Thank you for the privilege of helping you with some of the designs - you
don't know how much fun that was - and I am very blessed to have you as a
friend. The day I walked into your studio changed my life forever, in more
ways than one. So thank you for that.

Good morning. I hope all is well with you. I have been anxiously awaiting
my package and it arrived yesterday! I'm sure the postman thinks I am crazy
because I did a happy dance when I collected it.
Everything is so beautiful. I spent all last night looking and touching
everything. I fixed a nice cup of tea and had my husband sit down with me
so I could show him all of the goodies. He is such a good sport as he oohed
and aahed at the appropriate moments.
Again, thank you for creating such wonderful things and for the great
service. I'm sure you will be hearing from me as I start my new journey

Hi Renn, thanks for taking the time to reply to my mail. I've gone through
the website thoroughly, and it's so beautiful.
I'm going to order the book you recommended and a few of the "little gem"
projects - they are just too cute for words.
I just so wish, i had more time. I love quilting as well, and saw the crazy
quilting ideas also.
I've also subscribed to the monthly newsletter, which will keep me up to
date. Wish Di was in Jhb, instead of the Cape - haha...
but the site makes it possible to obtain the products in no time.
Can't wait to get my goodies, i'll put in an order today, and will be a

I got my wonderful package last week about Wednesday. I love, love, love the
ribbons! They are beautiful! This will be my first stumpwork project. I plan
to submit it at our state fair next October. I will be sure to have
information available for others who want to contact you for the book and
supplies. I know (if I do it well) it will be swooned over many times!
Thanks so much for your vigilance to ensure I get the order- your customer
services is outstanding!
Just to let you know my parcel of lovely goodies arrived today. Thank you
so much for the special treat of Pure Silk thread instead of cotton. They
are just gorgeous. I just can't wait to start my projects!
Many thanks again for your great service.

I just wanted to let you know my ribbon embroidery piece passed in the EGA
mastercraftsman program. I would not have been able to do it without your
books and beautiful ribbons.
I was able to submit the stumpwork piece at the same time and it passed

Having just looked at your website and seen the New Fairy Book that you
are publishing I thought - WOW another fantastically beautiful book - WOW
again, and from what I have seen on the website it looks so interesting
as are ALL your products, and I cannot wait to get my copy of the book
and purchase the fairy kits to embroider. They are so special.
I think we are so privileged to have a person who God has given so much
talent, patience and inspiration to and who is so willing to share it all
with us. As I have always said, there must be a special sewing room in
heaven (with amount of sewing I still have left to do,) where we are all
going to sit and natter and catch up with ourselves and I am sure God will
smile and say "Well here are no idle hands".
Di, to you and your team, well done again. Every time I order something
from you (only wish I lived in Cape Town near you) it is like Christmas
all over. Your products and the quality of the ribbons and fabrics are
outstanding; the wonderful service you give is so much appreciated.
I feel privileged to share all these years of sewing with you and may we
continue for many, many, many more years to come.

Thank you millions and millions.
They look so so so so so so so tempting all wrapped up in their little
wrappings that I don't want to open or disrupt them.
Yeah, I know it is called "cold feet"
My friend is already starting work on hers.
The truth is I am terribly busy this week as my 90 year old amazing mom
broke her elbow, She is in a home where she is well looked after, but I have
to get there more often than I normally do to quicken the healing process.
In any case I thank you for everything. That magical, personal touch of
friendship that I feel in every thread or package is indescribable,
Bless you and Di. You are both invited to come and stay with us and see this wonderful
I am so pleased to see all the new and improved features of your website! It
has been and no doubt will continue to be, an exciting experience each time
I access the website. Certainly am hoping that means greater worldwide
distribution of your wonderful kits for the books! Can't wait for Flower
Fairies - have pre-ordered through Amazon!
