Thanks for your kind words….  It makes me feel great that people are learning new skills and having fun!


“I had a wonderful day yesterday. Great to learn another new skill, laugh, and relax, as well as enjoy delicious scones.



“Wow – thank you. I didn’t have any faith in my own ability but with your wonderful patience and guidance, I am so happy with how it (my ottoman) has come together. I am still on a high!”



“Thank you so much for today’s workshop! I love my piano stool, such great people too!”



“Hey!! Thanks Ministry, I love what you guys are up too x”

“I have had so many positive comments about my first picnic/vintage frock while I’ve been overseas. Nobody can believe it’s hand/home made! Thanks to Ministry of Handmade’s fine instruction. :-)”



“Loved my private lesson with Julie today. I learnt new skills to take onto my next projects, and brushed up on skills I had learnt years ago. Can’t wait to do my next lessons with Ministry of Handmade.”



“How I long to meet with you and your wonderful group. Congratulations on having a beautiful gentle ,relaxing place for godesses and the odd Adonis to hone their creative skills. 
A big Hello from Central Queensland… Best wishes to you all.”



“With the warmth of hosts Julie and Maurice, the tranquil and lush surrounds of their beautiful home, and the fun to be had, an afternoon at Ministry of Handmade is exactly what the doctor ordered. 
My baby shower was one of the most memorable afternoons I’ve had, 14 of my friends and I created a one off cot blanket that I will cherish forever. The memories we made and the love that was sewn into it makes it a ‘must grab in case of fire’ item.
I will never be able to thank Julie and Maurice enough and will certainly be a return visitor!!”



“Great workshop – very patient and I never thought I’d make something as well as I did!”



“Love seeing what gorgeous creative things come up!”



“So glad to come across the Ministry of Handmade website. Since i first attended one of the workshops, i can’t stop going back. I absolutely love the classes. The teacher is very patient and helpful. I highly recommend Ministry of Handmade :)”



“What an awesome Sunday afternoon! An incredible creative space, a knowledgable & patient teacher & a very cool ottoman to take home at the end that I can’t believe I made. Thanks Julie, Maurice & of course Cooper – I will be back!”



“What a great find! Lovely surroundings,very informative and patient teacher with beautiful afternoon tea! Thank you so much Julie.”



“My private lesson with Julie was fantastic. I got everything I needed from our time and even some extra hints and advice for my fledging business! And Cooper is adorable :) I’m excited to come back for some of the workshops. My daughter is going to love the tent and bean seat!”



“Ministry of Handmade is doing great things for my wardrobe!”



“Excellent workshops!!!”



“Loved the workshop that I did at the Ministry of Handmade and my Advent Bunting graced our home with style for Christmas. Looking forward to my next experience!”



“Thanks so much for my cushion sewing class yesterday. Loved it all! Love all your vintage-ness and gorgeous details everywhere! You obviously love what you do!”



“Thank you Julie! I had a blast today at your beginners cushion cover class. I’m still proudly glancing over at my cushion tonight that I made today (with your brilliant guidance!).  Thank you.”



“Bella and I thank you so much for a lovely relaxing Kanzashi Flower workshop. Cannot wait to book in for the next one!”



“Thank you for your informative, no fuss, tutorial this morning.  I came away, not only with a new pattern that will fit me, but with added knowledge from a good teacher. Thank you.”
