I loved my recent class with Quay. I learnt a new technique - Wrap & Turn method. As always Quay did an excellent demonstration. Honesty I wouldn’t been able to do this on my own without Quay’s help.

I really enjoyed today’s session. Quay has been super patience with me as I get muddled understanding the knitting language. Thanks to Quay’s patience & clear demonstration the knitted sausage dog is slowly coming together nicely :)

I feel really chuffed with today’s lesson. I didn’t make a mistake or drop any stitches. My knitting techniques has really improved over the last few weeks thanks to Quay. The session went so quickly and I’m making super progress with the knitted sausage dog kit. It’s really great having Quay supporting & encouraging you...and I’m constantly learning loads! Honestly I wouldn’t get this far with my knitting if it wasn’t for Quay’s excellent class

I felt I made very good progress in today’s session. With Quay tips & technique advice my knitting skills is really improving. Also I feel confident asking Quay to remind me how to do certain knitting techniques like ‘cast off’ or adding a new wool colour. Quay is always happy to demonstrate.

I am really enjoying KNITTING FOR BEGINNERS I feel my knitting skills are improving. During the class I got myself stuck & I really wanted to give up. But thanks to Quay’s patience, encouragement & solving knitting dilemmas she was able to help me untangle my knit stitches.

I am really getting into the swings with knitting. I was a total newbie three weeks ago & now I have the knitting bug. It was really good to have my tutor Quay guide me & introduce new techniques at my own pace. I feel my confidence & my Knitting technique is growing thanks to Quay. My sausage dog is slowly coming together!

This was my second class with knitting tutor Quay & it was just as brilliant as the first. Thanks to Quay’s patience & clear demonstration I have really perfected my technique. Quay also encouraged me to start on a knitting kit I had & she helped me understand the knitting language/jargon!. I am really chuffed with myself :)

I really enjoyed Knitting For Beginners class. I thought Quay was such a good teacher. She was very patient with me & she did great demonstrations which helped me understand the different knitting techniques. I also learnt from Quay how to improve my knitting tension & watching out when to knit or purl. It was nice having her as my guidance & She helped me become my confident in knitting. After today’s session I defo got the knitting bug & want to practise more!

Quay made the class enjoyable and was very patient (i am a complete beginner!). Quay made it easy to follow and i found the videos she provided an added bonus as i am a slow learner. I would highly recommend knitting for beginners.

I really enjoyed my beginner's class with Quay. Quay's teaching style is very clear and she is very patient, not leaving anyone behind. I haven't knitted in years and found myself knitting several rows quite quickly, as well as learning to cast on and off, Purl stitch, stocking stitch and rib stitch. I can't wait to keep going! It was easy to follow Quay's hand movements in a separate window whilst being able to talk and feed back on progress. Thanks so much!
