More positive feedback:

"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!!"
~ Debbie Mather, Johannesburg

"The gift wrapping experience was awesome.  Went to the birthday party on Saturday evening with the wonderfully wrapped bottle of wine and the beautifully wrapped choccies (awkward gift), and it was showed off to everyone!  The Birthday girl was really very impressed.
And on Sunday the Mothers day gifts went down just as well – more wine and choccies!  My Mom still insisted on taking photos before opening anything!

It was so wonderful to see the reactions and faces light up when giving such interestingly wrapped prezzies!  A huge improvement to the normal boring gift bag!

~ Patricia Barker, La Lucia

"I really had a wonderful "me time" afternoon on Saturday.  Only once I had reflected on what we had done, the next day did I realise how much we actually covered in the short time.  It was a very busy afternoon.  My mom, mother-in-law and granny loved their beautifully wrapped presents, and my mom still has not opened hers. I don't think my family could quite believe that I had wrapped them.  Thank you once again."
~ Sandi
