We are always pleased to receive feedback and we are pleased to publish the photographs we get from customers who made their own Etui boxes using Craft Inspirations kits.

Denmead WI Belles

A group of delightful young ladies from the Women's Institute branch in Denmead, Hampshire recently got together for a day to make their own etui boxes from kits supplied by Craft Inspirations. One of the committee members, Jo, wrote to us afterwards saying, "I thought you might like to see the success of our labours. The ranges of colours and designs were fantastic and everyone loved making them. Now I have to organise another session for those members who couldn’t make it last time!"

Completed Etui boxes

Jo sent us a couple of photographs showing the boxes the group made and we are pleased to reproduce them here - click on the image to the right to view them. When the first picture opens, hover your mouse over the right hand side to reveal the arrow which, when clicked, will open the second image.

Denmead Belles' aim is to bring a modern, fresher approach to WI-ing and they seem to organise lots of activities apart from craft making. If you live in the Waterlooville area you could be joining them and having some fun. Take a look at their website to see what they offer.

Hello Mike and Jill

Completed Etui boxesI thought you might like to see some pictures of my daughter's finished Etui box. I'm not at all 'crafty' so Daisy (who is 13 years old) did the whole thing unaided.

We're very pleased with the result and think her careful work shows. Daisy loved doing the project and said to tell you how lovely the set was to do.

Hello Mike

Completed Etui boxesI have completed one of the boxes and attach photos of same. I made some mistakes but have adapted the instructions for my poor brain!
I will be sending for another kit as I enjoyed making this and feel they would make good Christmas presents. (click thumbnail to see larger images)

Hi Jill and Mike

Completed Etui boxesI thought you'd like to see my finished effort. (click thumbnail to see larger images)

I enjoyed the challenges it gave me......! It's purpose is a sewing box for my daughter whose birthday is next week. Perhaps when my other daughter sees it I'll be sending for another kit to construct!

Best wishes

PS: I made the pin cushion with scraps of leftover material!

From another happy customer

Completed Etui boxesI bought two Etui kits from you, one for myself and one for my sister-in-law as a Christmas gift....

However, she very kindly bought some fabric and made the box for me as a birthday gift.

It is amazing and I love it!!! I love home made gifts. I really must get my act together now and make a gift for my sister-in-law!

Kind regards,
