"Janet is a lovely tutor - encouraging and knowledgable and calm. I imagine a face-to-face course with her would be fabulous, but I think we struggled a little with the Zoom format. I think to do video courses successfully, studio-grade lighting and cameras, and a 'stage' for your demonstrations are probably needed, and as we didn't have this it was often hard to see what was being shown to us. I did learn some of what I had hoped to learn, so thank you Janet for persevering! A note to potential crafters - if you haven't done continental knitting before (holding the yarn in the left hand) you would be very well advised to learn this before attending this course as it is a technique that requires considerable practice, and is an important part of Fair Isle knitting as taught by Janet. Good luck, Janet - I know this was early days for your Zoom lessons so well done for giving it a go!"
