  "I visited Gina’s studio when she had an “open studio” day. After seeing the lovely patterns and colours she achieved using the heat press I signed up for a workshop. With no previous experience using a heat press I achieved some samples of fabric that I am delighted with. As it was a small group Gina was able to let people work at their own speed. Her notes and preparation were excellent." Lesley
