Fantastic session with Claire - her explanations were wonderfully clear, and I now feel set to get knitting! I will definitely be booking more time once I've mastered the basics - so inspiring. Thank you Claire!

Response from Claire Newberry's Knitting School:Hello Donna,
I found this zoom call so good. It was so good to talk to someone who knew the answers to my questions. It’s been 25 years since my machines saw light of day but looking forward to getting started. Would highly recommend anyone who wants to know about knitting machines.
