It's always very nice when people write to say they have enjoyed their course - I received this today:-
Anne and I wanted to say an enormous thank you to you Penny for having us on Wednesday and Thursday to show us how to make pleated lampshades. It was a day and a half of pure fun and indulgence for us and we both enjoyed it immensely and have both finished the shades and are ready to do the other ones... We do hope to come back and have your days instruction on how to make it into a business in the future. Please do put us both on your email list to keep us up to date with what you are up to and thank you once again Penny - for your delicious lunch, company and tuition.
