Knitting and Crochet Classes
We run a variety of very popular knitting and crochet classes. If you want to learn a new skill or improve your techniques then see what we have to offer. The lessons take place in our shop and you can relax and work at your own pace.
PLEASE note that all classes in May onwards will be held at the new shop at 11 Pocklingtons Walk LE1 6BU
You can inquire about a place by calling the shop on 0116 270 0337 or by email at, please leave a contact number too. If you're waiting for an email reply please check your SPAM folder.
As places are limited and popular payment must be made in FULL when booking. If you make an enquiry this is NOT a booking. Your place is only booked when payment is made. Apologies for sounding very prescriptive but to avoid disappointment please pay and book as soon as you know you want to do the class even if it is a few months way, we very rarely have space left close to the start of a course.
If you are left handed please let us know when booking your place.
The good news is you are entitled to 10% discount off anything purchased from the shop whilst doing the course (does not include books or patterns).
