Thank you

A really great class with the tutor Chrissie. It was a lovely, open, relaxed atmosphere over Zoom, lots of support and ability to ask questions and re-show demonstrations. Very relaxing hour and a half. The box arrived in good time.

I am a real beginner and Chrissie was amazing and so patient I will continue practicing my basic knit so I can build on my skills. Thanks so much Chrissie!

Tania Nobre Jun 2022

Stefania Gardner Jun 2022


Amazing fun! Had a private lesson with Kathryn and we ran through all my queries whilst I refreshed my basic knitting skills. So happy to have attended and have already signed up for the follow up knitting workshop.

This was a great refresher of some points that I learned as a wee gril and I also learned a different (more effective) way to cast on and how to purl. Katheryn was brilliant- thoroughly recommended!

Julia Marsh Jun 2022


Kathryn did an amazing job at making everything seem achievable and by the end of the workshop I was confident on the basics. I can’t believe I haven’t learnt to knit before!

Melissa Hanks Jun 2022


This was a really good course, was able to learn new things and get some confidence to start knitting. Clear instructions and you could ask as many questions as you like and she would show you as many times as you like.

Funmi Folaranmi May 2022


I was about ten minutes late to the class but Chrissie patiently took me through what I had missed. The class was fun and enjoyable, and Chrissie was a very good teacher, she taught at a very decent pace and was happy to stop to show us whatever we were not clear about.

Alexis Harris May 2022


Just what I needed after thirty years of not knitting. I never learned to cast on and couldn’t properly remember the rest but Chrissy had me whipped into shape in no time. She was great. This is my second HobbyCraft class and will not be my last!

Rebecca Nethercott May 2022


Chrissie was a great teacher, very friendly, encouraging, supportive and patient. I really enjoyed it and the time flew by! I feel ready and inspired to give knitting a go now! Thank you so much!

Joanna Smith May 2022


I recently took part in the beginners knitting class with Kathryne. It was excellent, very clear easy to follow instructions for all of the knitting basics any questions I had were answered and I feel I've learnt a great deal. Can't wait to do another one.

Alison Marsh May 2022


Thanks for a great class. Kathryne is an excellent teacher. I was able to ask questions and now feel confident to try knitting my first pattern. Can't wait to get started with my new hobby! Would definitely recommend the class to others.
