"The product of a 14 hours Punch needle workshop in 2 days with the brilliant Fiber Artist Mariam Satour.

Had a blast and from one artist to another, thanks for the smooth sail. You really inspired me with your talent and teaching skills. It is not an easy craft, yet u made it so much fun.

Needless to say that this cubist design was my idea. Forever adding my touch. 😉

Here's to more artistic adventures to come 🥂"

In a small group you can enjoy more and learn more.. thank you Mariam for the nice time and the useful workshop"



"A week ago it was my great pleasure attending a punch needle workshop with the one and only Mariam Satour, cannot tell you how much I felt myself blessed to know such a lovely person as herself and to taste such an artistic taste as hers, she really loves what she's doing and takes your soul to another level of tasting this art and feeling obsessed with the colors of the yarn and the mixture of them on a piece of cloth, along with other details such as her choice of the venue and the playlist she used in the background of the sessions and the lovely people I met there and enjoyed every single moment with them and with her and of course the delicious feteer, but I insisted not to post a word until I finish my second project on my own and to thank Mariam and show her the outcome of her passionate work. Thank you Mariam so much and looking forward to joining whatever classes you will host in the future isa, best of luck way to go keep it up Mariouma"
