Elaine Ward May 2022


Had a one to one with the brilliant Irene on cross stitch for beginners… one comment would be that the preprinted parrot kit would be a bit hard for beginners as it’s hard to see the print . Thanks to Irene I had a brilliant afternoon

Rebecca Nethercott May 2022

Irene was really great at explaining all the different stitches, to us to get us started on the cross stitch. She also got us started on the first few stitches of our cross stitch.
I feel I needed more lessons to help me get more confident doing the cross stitch.

Louise Jones Feb 2022


Rachel was very friendly and explained clearly the various methods of cross stitch. Highly recommended.

Shayon Desir Feb 2022


Very enjoyable workshop - the time went very quickly but I do think it was the right length. It is useful to have had a bit of knowledge of what cross stitch looks like but accessible and at a good pace. Irene was extremely knowledgeable and able to provide a lot of advice and tips. I would recommend people to join! Equipment arrived in good time and the tone of the session was relaxed and inclusive.

Anne Newton Feb 2022

Linda King Jan 2022


Thank you Irene. The hour and a half flew by! I was so lucky to be the only person on my session. Irene was very patient . I now feel confident that I understand the principles and have worked examples to refer to as I continue with the lovebirds picture. Many hours of fun to come!

Really enjoyed my introduction to cross stitch the class was very informative and easy to understand

Vanessa Cumper Jan 2022


Excellent tutor her explanations were very clear and did not mind redoing stitches to clarify. I would have preferred an easier kit with bigger holes in the aider although the kit was beautiful it was a tad too advanced for me, a beginner

Kate Wallace Jan 2022


Very friendly tutor who encouraged a relaxed atmosphere and for the participants to interact. Demonstrated a good level of knowledge which was very helpful.
