    Another three weeks of crochet. It flew past and we went on to learn how to do different granny squares and how to crochet flowers. It was fantastic. I am now totally hooked (sorry) on crochet. Hope there are some more in the new year!

    I did this course as a follow on from the beginners course and really enjoyed it. Especially enjoyed the flowers class but found the circles and tubes class useful and now feel more confident following patterns so there will be no stopping me now! I’m sure I’ll be back for the colour crochet class in the future.

    Loved this class. Started with the beginners class and followed with this. Crocheting the circles and tubes was my favourite! Before starting to learn with Nicki I had no clue of how to crochet and this week managed to make an amigirumi elephant following a pattern! I would never have been able to do this without these classes! I feel now I am able to crochet independently and really enjoy it! I have just started the crocheting raised stiches course now to learn even more! Thanks Nicki!

    I really loved this short course and who’d have thought that after a couple of evening sessions and a bit of practice I would be able to make so many wonderful items, including, bowls, swatches and flowers. Lovely to take time to learn new skills with other people in such a nurturing environment. As well as being a talented crafts person, Nicki is an expert teacher; informative and nurturing. She is a true expert in her field. Also thanks for the cuppa and cake!

      I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the course so much and look forward to seeing what you make!
