We are happy to offer general advice on knitting problems to our customers.  However this is not possible on Wednesday mornings or Saturday's when we are generally too busy in the shop.  Please also note that detailed advice requiring a lesson is charged at £20.00 per hour.

One to One Private Lessons:  We are happy to offer private knitting* lessons upon request, please contact us for more details.  These are charged at £20.00 per hour per person at a mutually agreed time (generally private lessons can be arranged for between 10am and 5pm Monday to Friday subject to availability of a tutor - please enquire).  * Sadly we cannot offer one to one crochet lessons.
