Sadly i had hurt my hand the day before but i had a fab 1 to 1 class with Kathryn. She kindly adapted the class as i can already knit, we concentrated on putting the cacti together and chatted about knitting & crocheting.
This has led me to booking a crochet lemon character workshop in july.
Time absolutely flew.

Michelle Mitchell May 2022


I really enjoyed this workshop. Chrissie was very knowledgeable and very easy to get along with. I was lucky enough to be the only participant and Chrissie paced the class just right. She found out about my background in knitting and as I wasn’t a complete beginner she was able to help me with a couple of things that were holding me back from completing successful projects whilst still working on the cactus (which are very cute). The workshops are such good value and the kits so beautifully presented that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Joanna Wray May 2022


Fab tuition, with lots of opportunity to ask questions. And a lovely cactus at the end!

Danielle Bailey Apr 2022


I had tried a few times to learn to knit but was unsuccessful. This class helped immensely. The instructor was very patient and knew her stuff. We had a nice chat during the session and it was very laid back and comfortable. I really had a good time.

Eileen Rolland Apr 2022


Tuition was well explained and easy to understand. Questions were answered thoroughly and techniques demonstrated well. A very enjoyable session.

Mrs Notley Mar 2022


Although I have many years of knitting experience I still learnt something knew and enjoyed the interaction with the host of the tutorial. Many thanks.

Angela Harrod Mar 2022


I was the only one on the workshop so was really lucky. I had some knowledge of knitting but developed my skills with casting on and off. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and look forward to completing my cacti.

Joanna Jones Mar 2022


Another fabulous workshop with Kathryn - can't wait to pot my Cacti! Thanks again to hobbycraft for original designs

Kelly Scott Mar 2022


I found it really challenging
but Kathryn, the really friendly artisan, was happy to go over each step as many times as needed to get started. Obviously there was no time to learn casting off, let alone finishing a cactus, but Kathryn gave a brief demo and signposted where we could get videos to help us.

Anne Eccles Mar 2022


Great workshop and really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend. The tutor was very patient and went at a steady pace and was very informative.

Catherine Harker Mar 2022


Katheryn was fabulous, patient, very clear and knowledgeable. Lots of top tips, that I will take away from this session for my future knitting projects!

Emily Vane Mar 2022


Fantastic workshop, Kathryn was a brilliant tutor and made it all make sense I feel confident in being able to complete the kit independently now following her excellent tuition. Would recommend this for anyone just beginning or someone who needs a refresher.

Kathy Stanley Mar 2022


This workshop is AMAZING I took a knitting class like a year or two ago and didn’t really pick up on it after the session, but after taking this session I feel like I’m a pro. Kathryn was being so helpful especially with how to fix mistakes and how to make knitting easier. I recommend 10/10

Josie Bowler Mar 2022


I really enjoyed this workshop, Kathryne was a great host and teacher. She went at just the right pace for beginners and was always happy to repeat herself if needed. I'm determined to carry on my little knitted cacti!

Jeannie Shapiro Feb 2022


The instructor was lovely and clear. I think that 90 minutes for beginners though isn't enough. I can knit and purl but I can't cast on or off. I fell at the first hurdle as I was having trouble casting on and could use more help but didn't want to monopolise the instructor's time. So I just watched the rest. I did ask for help at the very end but then too late to follow the rest. I think you could easily sell courses for just casting on and off as well as tinking (unknit - how to correct a mistake). It is a bit intimidating asking questions with other people you don't know - you don't want to look silly. I'd love an in-person class now that restrictions are off. I think that would be easier for beginners. I haven't completed any of the cactuses - I am stuck with a mistake so now need to find someone to help me sort. I can only imagine how really newbies are coping. I will watch the videos to see if I can get help. I think the courses are great but the expectation of how much you can fit in during the time allocated needs rethinking.

Janet Yapp Feb 2022


We enjoyed the knitting on line course only problem was went too quickly but we were given the skills to complete the project in our own time. Overall felt it was good value for money and look forward to trying some of the other on line courses you provide.

Lidia Vasileva Feb 2022


The teacher was absolutely lovely, but as an absolute beginner, I feel like this class is 2 levels above my current stage! It feels like the pattern is too complicated and the tools are not really newbie friendly - the needles are really slippery and the yarn is very thin! I am happy I took the class because it gave me an insight, but I am going to go buy thicker needles and yarn to be able to learn by myself

Sharon Rolland Feb 2022


Very enjoyable though it's going to need a lot of practise! The basics were taught clearly.

Eleanor Carter Feb 2022


Kathryn was knowledgeable, patient and had a great sense of humour and was able to answer any questions!

Karen Vickers Feb 2022


Really enjoyable workshop aimed at the beginner. Perfectly pitched to it's audience and the tutor was very patient, clear and concise with her instruction. Also links given to consolidate if needed. Highly recommend.

Kate Harrison Feb 2022


Very good class. Teacher was very patient and thorough and took her time to make sure we all caught up

Catherine McGlade Feb 2022


It was great to get everything I
needed for the class posted to my home and this arrived very quickly. I really enjoyed the class, Catherine was a fantastic teacher and very patient! Great to get the hobby craft videos also so I can watch and learn in my own time.

Sally Yeo Feb 2022


Brilliant instruction, really easy to follow, even online. The project chosen was a nice simple one to do but really pleasing result - I am two thirds of the way through and love my little cacti. The pack arrived in good time and contained everything I needed, more than enough so I may make some more. We had great fun in the group. I will recommend these sessions.

Susan Edwards Feb 2022


The Intro to knitting class was great and the tutor very helpful and patient. I loved it and feel confident to continue/complete the project. Thanks so much!

Katy Clark Jan 2022


Really great beginners session. I can now cast on, knit, purl and cast off, which is more than I was able to earn from YouTube videos. I have also already finished my first knitted cactus!
Could have done with being a little bit longer so we could do more knitting with someone on hand to ask questions.

Knitted Miniature Cacti Workshop review by Katy Clark

Melanie Hope Jan 2022


Great host, very patient and willing to show things again. There is a lot to take in for a complete beginner, so only having enough time to complete a couple of rows, then being shown how to finish it off when we reach the required number of rows was a little daunting, not sure if I will remember all the stitches required when I come to do it.

A follow up video of the course (without the audience for privacy) would be very useful, as I think this is going to take a lot of practice and being able to watch again would help.

Rosanna Sinagoga Jan 2022


Very lovely and patient tutor. I needed extra help. Thank you so much. Will be booking more of these courses

Sarah Patrick Jan 2022


Friendly trainer and enjoyable starter/taster workshop. Would be good to have seen how to cast off to finish and how to sew the final piece together using the smaller needles provided too.

Elisa Ball Jan 2022


Absolutely loved the course, the lady was very friendly and super helpful. The class was easy to follow and well explained and it was a very nice evening!
She also gave me a link to a YouTube playlist so I could keep practising after the session which I found very helpful and easy to follow"

Hester Dalgleish Jan 2022


I liked the class but I am not always as quick to get things straight away so felt like because I struggled with the first step, I couldn't then do the next steps and ended up having to struggle and just watch instead. Maybe this is just me but do find it hard to go at the different teachers speed sometimes.

Thushara Everist Jan 2022


Very clear instruction. Ran out of time to show how to sew cactus as others could not get how cast on or do stitches. Time flys. Instructor very very patient!

Sarah McLean Jan 2022


Brilliant class! Really informative and tutor was so patient. Thank you so much, will definitely take another one

Melanie Hedley Jan 2022


I really enjoyed the class and the instructor was really friendly and easy to ask questions. Wish I had longer to be honest especially with a beginners class.
