I am happy to teach all aspects of knitting and on all levels, from children to adults, either One to One, in small groups or with clubs. I have been knitting for about 40 years and divide my time between supply teaching in the local schools and teaching knitting. Although I live on the Island I am willing to travel to the mainland to give talks and teach.

I back up my classes with email support when a quick email can get you started again.

I have been CRB checked by the IOW County Council.
