"I am a beginner and this was incredibly helpful. I am very grateful for the thorough and thoughtful manner I was taught and the teacher always made an effort to make sure that I understood before moving on. We were able to cover everything I was interested in. I look forward to mastering the basics I was taught and then coming back for another lesson!"

Claire Newberry's Knitting School responded:

Emma reviewed: Machine Knitting: 3hr private, live online course

"I had a great lesson with Claire. She was very patient and explained things clearly. We worked at my pace and on things that I wanted to learn. I started off clueless and now feel confident to do the basics by myself. I will definitely be booking another lesson when I’m ready to move on to the next stage. "

Karen Johnson reviewed: Machine knitting bite-size, one to one tuition with Claire Newberry-ask me anything!

"I contacted Claire because I was struggling to understand how to increase and decrease neatly when knitting rib on my Brother machine and ribber. The manuals, books I owned and YouTube videos just didn’t cover this topic when doing something like a 3x3 rib and I wanted to do more with the ribber than just knitting welts. I wanted to knit a whole garment in rib. Claire was brilliant. We spent an hour (and a bit longer) working on a neat professional way of doing fashioned decreases that I could apply to 3x3, 4x4 or other combinations. I came away feeling confident. I understood what I was doing and spent the afternoon practicing. So, if you’re struggling with something, don’t get frustrated, invest in yourself and get some training. I highly recommend Claire, she’s knowledgeable, experienced and very patient. Our time overran but Claire kindly continued because she wanted to ensure I understood and was happy that she had answered my questions. Great value for money and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. I know where to go in the future as I learn more about machine knitting and try new things."

"Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was a pleasure to teach you this morning. Best wishes, and I look forward to see your rib sweater. Claire."
