My mother in law has been looking for patterns using English terminology. She loved the packaging and the quality of the wool. She found the pattern easy to follow and did the hat in an afternoon. The owner was quick and helpful when responding to my questions. I would recommend for anyone who wants to gift to a knitter or want to knit themselves!!

A wonderful afternoon with the lovely Bev, ladies and Percy the dog 🐶 Really relaxed session for a total novice like me…great to experience with my friend and gave us both the big to get into sewing more…so much so, we’ve booked onto the Christmas bunting one in December. Highly recommend to give it a go 😊

Great experience - I was visiting Nantwich and saw the jumper in the window and fell in love with it. Unfortunately you were closed and I was only there for the day. Once I realised I could order from you it was easy to do the online order. I just wish I lived nearer to join your knitting class. Sad! Anyway I look forward to receiving more exciting information and updates. Thank you.
