Below is a small selection of comments from customers …
“Bought 4 dvd’s- I have managed to watch the first DVD and have found it fascinating.  I am very new to floristry having ventured into it by making arrangements for my parents cemetery plot I have found making the arrangements both therapeutic and an honour; getting a sense of achievement knowing I have done them my self. I am a full time senior nursing sister at my local hospital so free time is limited but I am looking forward to having a go at an arrangement for display in my home…. Sam
Bought all 4 DVD’s as on special offer….”Really interesting watching; hours of teaching – don’t think I shall remember it all but I can watch again and again, haven’t made anything yet but building up to it ;o)… Sheilgh
“Bought the Buttonhole and Corsage DVD’s – having a lot of fun with my daughters who have really got the hang  of making them!”… Jo
“Made my first posy arrangement in a dish, it was nerve racking and took me an hour but I did it!  I shall have another go and I did as you suggested and took a photo of it so I can look back and remember to see how I made it”… Phyllis
………………..Come on Phyllis, where’s the photo?! ;o)… Mary
Hello Mary –
I’ve now gotten around to writing a short ‘testimonial’ of our training day, so feel free to use it on your website etc!
‘After spending a 1:1 beginners level training day with Mary I found her to be a fantastic and motivating teacher.  She has a wealth of experience and knowledge which she communicates very well and she ensures that she is covering areas that the student wants to focus on.  We achieved a huge amount over the day, using both artificial and fresh flowers and I couldn’t have asked for a better beginner’s session or for a lovelier tutor!  I highly recommend Mary to anyone who wants to learn new skills or build on existing ones, and I am sure I will be calling on her again in the future!’- Lynda x
first wreath attempt!
 Very nicely done Lynda!

A Local Demonstration I Did  In November 2011……..

~ ‘I didnt think I’d learn anything; just came out for the evening.  But you have inspired me to take flower arranging up again!’

~ ‘We found it all very interesting, you do it different than the others- you explain things and we could follow it.  Im not saying we took ALL of it in but we are going to have a go!’

~(found out a friends Mum came to it as well  who I hadn’t met) ~ ‘ Ive been

flower arranging for 40 years and thought I’d done it all, but you opened my eyes and I saw so many new ways of doing things I hadn’t given thought to;  I feel all re-energized to have a go’.

~ ‘ That was amazing, I thought you just ran a Duck Sanctuary!  I’d no idea you could do things like that!’

~ I want to buy that DVD, my daughter will love it, she is into crafts and I’m sure she can show me’ (laughing)

So you see, you can learn something and you can make something so dont be terrified!
