“I had my window fitted into my bathroom door! I’m so excited and absolutely love it. I’m hugely proud of myself as when I started Jill’s classes I ouldn’t even cut a piece of glass straight. The fact that I managed to make a whole window is testament to Jill’s expertise and patience. Please can you thank her profusely as I’m chuffed to pieces that I’ve achieved my little dream. Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome.”
