The "knit to fit your tits" workshop was great. I'm working on a sweater now and can't wait to experiment with one of the several options Woolly Badger recommended and taught to us. The class size was perfect. The instruction was clear and informative. I would definitely take another class.

This was a fantastic session. Jacki was very well prepared and knowledgeable. I learnt a lot and am really excited to incorporate the techniques covered here in my future pattern designs. Thanks Jacki! xxx

As always, Jacki was super clear with her explanations and made some really tricky concepts make perfect sense. She had plenty of examples and answered questions clearly. Shame that Sophie cat didn't attend :D
