      Thank you so much for your generosity with this freebee. I have many of your kits and I am always pleased with the quality and back up when I receive them. Have a brilliant Crimble and an ever better new year. Love to all Jane xx

      Good afternoon to you both and I would like to say a sincere thank you for the free download of the gift purse. I thoroughly enjoy your fabulous makes as you make the sewing project so easy to understand and also when I have purchased your panel kits I love the detail you put in not only the designs and colours but the little extras you add as the labels and things. You are a great team and Rebecca when I watch you demonstrating and chatting it’s as though you’re a best friend sewing together. Enjoy your day and thank you again. Sue x

      Hi Amy and Rebecca
      Just to say thank you for the free instructions and video for the Gift Envelope, I really appreciate your generosity.
      Also, thank you for the reasonably priced kits which I can afford and purchase without too much guilt.
      The video tutorials are great, without the usual waffle, just straight to the point and they have given me the confidence to have a go, I bought the Duffle Tote for my knitting and if it goes well I plan to get the sewing one. I am very much enjoying the Amber Makes school of sewing and looking forward to the ‘Wrapped in Style Gift Bags’
      Best wishes
