Today seems finally a bit like summer (wishful thinking maybe? So much rain until now!)

I’m now on vacation, although there are no exotic locations for me this year, I will be in the UK for 3 weeks, taking care of my Mum after a routine operation. You can still book classes while I’m away, the calendar you see on the class booking is up to date – classes are bookable after 18th July.

My Etsy shop is partially deactivated – you can still buy and download knitting and crochet patterns, but no physical items will be displayed until I’m back. I’ll still be reading my emails, although replies might be a bit slow, but you can still reach me via the contact link above or any of my social media links (buttons below).

Don’t forget to check out and subscribe to my YouTube channel for crochet. In the beginning I will be publishing content there for beginner crocheters learning to crochet. I’ll be adding to it over time and I hope to make it a great resource for all my learners.
