Saturdays gift wrapping course had two ladies on it who had read about Wrap for You in the Women & Home Magazine. One of these ladies travelled all the way from Johannesburg to attend the course and as she had been a Scrapbook teacher for a few years and had attended other Gift Wrapping courses, I was a little daunted in the beginning. Whilst I was confident I would be able to teach her lots of new techniques, you can't help feeling a little breathless in the presence of an expert. So you can imagine how delighted I am to have received the following email from her:
My name is Debbie Mather and I've attended a great many "courses" over the years - I am an avid crafter and love to learn new things and combine them with things I already know. I attended Ingrid's gift wrapping course expecting the usual boring routine and was pleasantly surprised to have thoroughly enjoyed myself and actually to have learnt new things!! She is a brilliant teacher, patient and encouraging - explains and demonstrates extremely well. Her passion for wrapping is very evident and totally infectious!! She makes you want to wrap everything in sight!! Her presentation and preparation is professional, the materials provided are of good quality and her wrapping knowledge exceptional!I encourage anybody out there interested in learning how to present a beautiful gift to attend one of her courses!! I can't wait to come back and learn some more!!
