Pam - from Beginner 2015 to Improver 2015/16

Jane's classes are great! She asks what projects we are thinking of doing and sometimes actually starts the project herself just for us

to see how the project will look! I am working through a number of different stitches in order to have a catalogue making it easy to

refer back for different projects. All in all Jane is a great teacher, kind, enthusiastic and is very interested in everyone's projects.

Good attributes for teaching crochet I think! Pam

 

Britt - Improver 2015

I love Jane's crochet classes. They are small and intimate. Jane gives a lot of individual attention and help on whatever project you are working on.

She also has a lot of patterns to start you off if you don't have anything. Britt

 

Sarah - from Beginner 2014 to Improver 2015

Jane brings or even models lots of items to inspire you (beautiful lacy tops, hats, bags or just a simple throw),

with easy instructions to follow. You don't feel rushed, and Jane leaves you to get on if you're managing fine

but is available straightaway and generous with her time if you encounter a problem.

Also, you can book into a class when it suits you and not feel tied down by having to attend a course of a set length.

Three hours devoted to crochet with nothing else demanding your attention - lovely! Sarah

 

Sally- from Beginner 2014 to Improver 2015/16

Excellent teacher, patient and calm. Small friendly classes, lots of attention given, and

Jane is always there at the end of the phone/email if you get stuck between classes. The 3 hours just fly by.

Highly recommend. Sally

 

Naida - Beginner 2015

Jane's classes are not overcrowded and everyone gets lots of individual attention.

And they are fun! Naida

It was amazing to see just how much her students have achieved.

A really great group and I like to think there's a group like this in every town!’

that I had wanted to learn for years and that no one else who tried could.

Thank you so much and you might just see me again!!!’ Sandra

 

Loraine from Beginner 2013 to Improver 2014

As a competent knitter, I was envious of those who could crochet, until one day I met a lady who raved about Jane. I booked myself a 1:1 starter session and haven't looked back! I first met Jane two and half years ago and following the starter session, joined a 6-week beginners workshop, which turned into an intermediate group. I can thoroughly recommend Jane's sessions, whether 1:1 or small group and whether you are a complete beginner or need to refresh your skills. Jane tailors her style and content to the needs of her students and provides demonstrations of various stitches to help continuous improvement and the ability to read patterns. Jane is incredibly patient, talented and knowledgeable as well as a truly lovely lady. Loraine

at all and that I am now making a cushion and flowers is unbelievable.
