"I have my lamp set up on our sideboard in the living room and it gives me such a thrill to turn it on every evening. Its warm glow reminds me of the great day we had at the workshop - every time. And it receives so many compliments from visitors!"

Kate, workshop student


"Many thanks - loved our lampshade making day, it was lots of fun. Always good to learn a new skill and your teaching was excellent."

Sal, workshop student


"You have been fantastic at sending me styrene and rings in a very timely manner and as long as you are in business I will continue to order my supplies from you."

Anne A, NZ


"Thank you so much Anna. I have enjoyed occasionally making shades for myself or people close to me since I did a workshop with you a few years ago. You have made something so useful so accessible to everyone."

Laura, Orange NSW


"At last! I have made the shades for my gooseneck lamp! The video clips that you made to accompany the written instructions were so helpful! I used fabric from Ink & Spindle and we ended up loving this design so much that we made both shades the same. We're thrilled with how they turned out."

Carrie, NSW


"I love my lamp. I love the finished product; it's really professional and people comment on it when they visit.

It was also surprisingly easy. Your instructions were great and although I found it fiddly to poke in the edges, it actually worked well and there's been no fabric astray in all this time (over 9 months).

I'd definitely recommend the kits and would like to do more when I have time. I ended up running the fabric sideways to avoid having a sewn seam to get sufficient width for the circumference.

Thanks for a fabulous product."

“I received my order yesterday and just wanted to say thank you. I know how to make lampshades - however, your instructions and the presentation of my order was a delight!

I am looking forward to making my lampshades in felt and will certainly be recommending 3Chooks to my felt making students if they wish to make their own lampshades.

“Such a pleasure doing business with 3Chooks! It was obvious to me right from the first point of contact that Customer Service is a priority for 3Chooks! Within 24 hours I had all my questions answered and my order placed. I was told my order should arrive within 3 business days which it did. I can highly recommend this business. Thank you so much for your help and awesome service!

"Thanks for doing such a magnificent job on the lampshade.  It really is beautiful and the workmanship faultless.  You are certainly skilled and we are thrilled with the end result.  We will most certainly come back to you should we have other lampshades to be recovered in the future, and I will happily recommend you to friends and colleagues."

"The light looked fantastic when we picked it up, but really looked amazing when lit up (and that wasn't just the wine glasses we had on).  It was transformed into what I had hoped and the photos looked amazing - it just changed the look again. Thanks again, I may buy a kit myself yet to have a go :)"

"I thoroughly enjoyed the class on Sunday and the ease with which you presented the class.  I have a BA in Adult Education, so please take my comments as high praise."
