'Teach a Child to Knit/ Crochet' day at Mostyn

Hi, I attended the Craft Class 'Teach a Child to Knit/ Crochet' day at Mostyn with my daughter. Please can you pass on my thanks to the lady would was staffing the crochet workshop in the morning. She was very good at teaching my daughter to crochet and Laura has completed some more crochet work at home since attending. Laura has some problems with her vision and the member of staff quickly made adjustments to make sure that Laura was working with some brightly coloured yarn that was easier for her to see. Thanks again. Cath N, 25 May 2016.

I attended the course with Celia Banks

Hi, I attended the course with Celia Banks on 24 & 25 October at the Mostyn store. I couldn't find the feedback form at the time but really wanted to leave feedback. I rate the workshop environment, comfortable, pleasant and well resourced.

1. Course value for money is excellent. 2. Ratio of participants to tutor allows for really excellent individual attention.

I would recommend the course to anyone wishing to improve fitting and sewing techniques. Celia is a source of useful and up to date information which as a returner to sewing is proving invaluable to me.

10 out of 10 to Celia & 10 out of 10 to Abakhan for the menu of Workshops it is making available in its store. Regards, Pat H. 7 April 2016.

'Take you Anywhere Dress' course.

Hi, I was in your class yesterday at Liverpool. I really enjoyed my day and the kind things you said about my sewing. You recommended that I did the 'Take you Anywhere Dress' course.

I enjoyed myself so much I have booked on the course but not until July due to work commitments. You asked me to tell you if I decide to do the course so we can use faux taffeta to challenge me out of my comfort zone. I am also trying to get on the part 2 next month. Thanks again for your excellent tuition yesterday, you have a lot of patience. Rachel C. 8 February 2016

A Brilliant Demonstration

I would like to inform your management team about a brilliant demonstration I went to today at your Mostyn store. It was a demonstration on the Janome Sewing Machine. I recently had a Janome Sewing Machine for my birthday and wanted to ensure I was using it correctly and to its full potential.

The Demo was given by Sharon and she was wonderful. To a novice like me, Sharon was patient and encouraging, answering all my questions. I was able to have a go on the machine and following Sharon's instruction, I sewed my first ever button hole! I am thrilled as Sharon has given me the confidence to start sewing after many years away from a Sewing Machine. So a massive thank you to Sharon. I enjoyed the Demonstration so much, I have now booked to attend the Day Course on Sewing Cushion Covers. So this may be the first of many day courses I will attend, especially as I am now retired. So a massive thank you. Santessa, 25 January 2016

We visited your fabric warehouse

We visited your fabric warehouse in Mostyn, Flintshire today 17th August /15. to purchase curtain material etc which my sister in law is very kindly going to make for me. Your staff especially Holly were excellent, nothing was too much trouble and they had all the time in the world for us. With the large quantity of varied materials on sale it was very difficult to choose from, they did not hurry us in anyway and we were able to leave very happy with what we had chosen and the advise your staff had gave us. After our purchases we visited your beautiful bright clean cafe, again your staff there were very helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. Regards Mr and Mrs Jolley, 19 August 2015.

How wonderful a member of staff in the Mostyn Branch was today

I would just like to point out how wonderful a member of staff in the Mostyn Branch was today. My friend and I went into the wool shop looking for advice on starting to crochet. The lady Sue, who helped us was totally amazing. So helpful and knowledgeable she really couldn't have done any more to help us. I hope this does not go unnoticed and I feel there are not enough compliments today regarding staff. Well done Sue, my friend and I will be back soon, J. Sellers. 21 August 2015.

Job well done!

Today I purchased curtain material from your Preston Store. The gentleman that served me, deserves a mention for excellent customer service! Not only was he just about to take his break, he measured out exactly what I needed when I told him in inches and how many windows it was for. Also, he informed me of the weight, as I told him I was taking this material abroad in my suitcase. He was with me for at least 3/4 hour cutting, checking and advising me on my purchase.

I have been buying from Abakhan since I was 13 years old at the N.Wales store. This is the first time I have felt that an employee deserves a mention for good service. Not that I have never received it before, I have, but today that gentleman really went over and above to help me. Please let him know he is a valued member of your team! Yours sincerely, Mrs Jones
