I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for teaching me to spin last weekend. i didn't stop grinning all day! i was so proud of my first skein (of yarn) I am taking it along to my Stitch and Bitch group tonight'

'all the feedback I have had from previous students has been excellent about you. Other people sing your praises too.'


" brought a great deal of material and a huge variety of equipment. You made the art of spinning look so graceful as well as simple. I understand that you introduced a variety of methods which seemed to be very popular with the members...... you exercised a great deal of patience, giving each member personal time. That gesture was obviously much appreciated."

MF, Secretary, West of Scotland Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers.
