This month’s classes




New in October on Tuesday 16th – a knitting and crochet meet-up. Bring your project along and socialise with other likeminded crafters – advice, encouragement and friendly chat. There’ll be tea coffee and alcoholic drinks on sale at the bar. It will take place at The Queens pub in Crouch End and will run from 6.30-8.30, for the meet-up just drop in at any time…

For all the following classes, you will need to book in advance.

Please do sign up to the newsletter (bottom of page) if you’d like monthly updates.

My October classes are listed below (£10 per hour, per person), however if you want to learn at a time to suit you, just get in touch and I’ll arrange a 1-2-1 instead (£12 per hour). Scheduled classes usually take place in a cafe in Crouch End. For the usual cafes, click here
