What our “Hens” have said:

Hi Sheila-May   A big ‘thank you’ for making Natalie’s hen party such an enjoyable experience.  Everyone at the party had a fab time and went away with a sense of achievement, especially Natalie who surprised herself  and is really  proud of her sewing skills.
 
The concept was brilliant….a group of us working together on a product that will be utilised and cherished.  The learn dynamics … what a brilliant way to bring the two side of the family together prior to the event – this helped with relationships on the day.  The catering was brill and Sheila’s lovely way ensured it was extremely enjoyable.
 
I particularly liked the patience shown by Sheila with every aspect!  The fact that we created something beautiful and wearable.  The freedom to create what we wanted and all materials were provided.  This was absolutely nothing that could have been done to improve the experience of the day! 
 
We enjoyed everything about the event.  The fantastic communication, above and beyond great customer service!   Sheila was a wonderful host. 
 
The Hen Party was even better than I expected.  I liked how chilled out the day way.  I enjoyed learning how to use a sewing machine and how to make bunting. 

Girls  Crafty Get Together Party

Why wait for a reason.  Just get together with some of your friends for a fun evening and making and laughing.  Laughing is good for the soul!  Choose from a whole variety of themes, or let us know you ideas.  Bring your own wine.
