'Dear Mandy,
Your book Simply Redwork arrived this morning! What fantastic service and a fantastic book.
Really pleased to get the patterns/transfers with it. Thanks very much
Joy'...................loving it!!!

'How lovely I received my book today - it's brilliant & so easy on the eye - you should be very proud of yourself I love it - I have put it with all the other books of yours
I have several of your projects - so I am going to start working through them all
I am going to the 'Handmade Fair' hopefully I will see you there'

'Thank you Mandy and your 'team' xx I am delighted with your "Simply Redwork" book xx can't wait to get started xx regards Hilary xx'

My copy arrived today thank you, I've not had chance to have a proper read of it yet but just flicking through the pages is a joy and the quality of the pictures and the whole book is amazing and it was signed too!

Much to my surprise your new book arrived this morning (I only ordered it on Sunday afternoon!) Congratulations - it is excellent and lovely to see a resurgence in the embroidery stitches I used to do as a child in the 50's when materials etc were at a premium.

Order some webbing bag handle tape from the lovely Sharon last week, also mentioned that I needed 3 of the large red poppers. She knew she didn't have any in stock but promised she would have a hunt and see what she could do. Ordered Monday by Thursday my parcel arrived and yippee! 3 red poppers. Great service and a really lovely lady to talk to. Thank you.

Today I telephoned the wonderful Sharon to have my name put on the 'Special list' re: a 'Stitched with Love kit'. I adore the designs. I have a special birthday this year, what better way to celebrate than with a Mandy Shaw 'stitched with love' kit!!!!!

''What wonderful staff you have. If only every company had a 'Sharon'. She was kind, helpful and so friendly. The whole experience has made 'Dandelion Designs' THE number one place for me to shop for my stitching supplies in the future. What amazing customer service. Thank you.
Kind regards, Sue'

Ordered a couple of thing which were despatched on 12 Dec and I received them the next day!!!. Many thanks.

Well what have you started!!!

From a "not really interested in sewing" person, i'm now taking sewing classes and on my way to making a snow man garland with your lovely pattern that my sister has just bought me. I have two of your boks and the instructions are amazing.

''Dear Mandy
I received your new book this morning, it is one of four of your books that I now have.
Thankyou for signing it , the free pattern, that I am delighted with. I have all you shows recorded and watch them over and over again.

Love Craftycaz ''

''Thank you for sending me my kit for the 2 becomes 1 bag, I've made it already, once I knew what I was doing and had recorded you ages ago on C & C doing a demo of this bag, it was
easy. We have a local village produce and craft show this weekend and
a tote bag is one the item on the list so going to take and along and hopefully win with it.''
