I signed up for an Amigurumi lesson with Margaret and it was great! She is patient and happy, and made the lesson a really enjoyable experience. It was good value for money and I came away with new skills! Thank you!

What a wonderful and highly enjoyable time we had with Marg at a frayed knot. We attended a beginner’s knitting class and Marg was patient, an excellent teacher and delightful company. Would highly recommend for someone wanting to learn a new skill or find a mindfulness activity.

Such a fantastic and fun workshop - Understanding Crochet Stitches and Patterns. Marg is a fabulous instructor and I learnt so much. Will definitely be back to further improve my crochet skills!

What a great teacher - Marg had me crocheting in no time! As a beginner it was so much better to have someone give direction and see what you’re doing as you work, rather than trying to learn from online videos which can’t point out where you went wrong. And you get to meet and have interesting conversations with other people. A win win!

My daughter really enjoyed the kid's beginner crochet class - much more than she thought she would. She said that Marg was a good, kind and patient teacher. Good value for money and a great way to get kids off their screens and be creative.

As a newbie to crocheting or knitting, Margaret is patient and very clear with her instructions. I love that I get a learners guide too and a few goodies to keep me going after class. Highly recommended and a lot of fun!

Excellent workshop covering C2C crochet - instructions were clear and there was lots of support and help to make the workshop sampler. A nice little goodie bag supported by endless cups of tea made the afternoon really enjoyable.
