The Makedomenders were very happy to receive another lovely testimonial from the hens at a recent craft workshop  making bunting for the wedding that many of the party-goers were really enthused by all the creativity on offer and want to continue to develop their sewing skills. We’re so pleased but really not surprised as the interest in […]

Pretty crockery and cute tea-cups are part of […]
