What our Community is saying!

“Hi FATT. I just wanted to tell you how WONDERFUL the interview was. I felt like I was there and so in sync, totally understanding and agreeing with the vibes regarding the draw of nature, photography, simple beauty, etc. It was a magical hour for me today.” Lesley Riley

“I just want to let you know how much I enjoy your Friday programming. Listening to and seeing some of my favourite fibre artists has been an awesome treat. The team does a beautiful job with presentation and I absolutely love their genuine personality.” Donnetta Irvis

“I just wanted to reach out to you today because I’m re-watching all the fibre arts takes 2 Friday feature artists videos. They’ve been a godsend to me, not just because I’m in lockdown at home, but also because they are an incredible inspiration too and have kept me creative. The generosity of those artists is greatly appreciated, taking the time to talk and share is a wonderful thing. And last but not least of all your insightful contributions to each video is motivational. You ask the questions we want to ask and questions we didn’t know we needed asking.” Bernadette Daly
