Jackie reviewed: Learn to spin yarn with Janet Renouf-Miller

"This is a wonderful course for anyone wanting to learn to spin and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try, either on a spindle or with a wheel. Janet is an excellent teacher who explains things calmly and clearly, going through each step in as way that just makes you want to try her methods immediately. I resisted the temptation to skip the first few videos and boy was I glad! I never realised how little I knew and Janet magically explained how all the small "baby steps" gradually come together to get you spinning. The videos are well filmed and easy to follow. It was easy to keep going back over anything I was not sure off, and Janet has a lovely reassuring way of encouraging all learners - so many good tips! The best course EVER for learning to spin."

Vicky reviewed: Learn to spin yarn with Janet Renouf-Miller

"I’m thoroughly enjoying learning to spin with Janet. The price is such a bargain for the course and it’s so helpful being able to go back to the videos in case you didn’t get something the first time. It’s a nice pace and Janet had a lovely relaxed style. She’s also super helpful if you get stuck or have any queries."

Create With Fibre responded:

"so glad you are enjoying the course. I have loved seeing the photos of your beautiful yarn in our Create With Fibre community facebook group too. happy spinnning Janet"

Caroline Mayor reviewed: How To Spin Just About Anything (book)

"The book arrived very quickly, Tuesday! It is now by my bed so that I can read it properly after I have finished a novel by Andrew Doerr - All the light we cannot see! I have dipped into spinning but it needs to be read properly, as I have already said. I must also find my spindle upstairs in Caroline's Corner (my Craft Room). Caroline Mayor"

Create With Fibre responded:

"Thanks for your review Caroline and I do hope you have fun with the book. Remember that we have a Facebook group where you can ask questions and there are free videos there to watch too."

Kate reviewed: Fair Isle knitting live video course with Create With Fibre

"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!"

Mairi Mayfield reviewed: Learn to weave with Janet Renouf-Miller

"I have just started this course and am thoroughly enjoying it! The instruction videos are great and very clear and you get loads of additional information in the form of PDFs. It's a really lovely course if you're new to weaving and want to give it a go. Communication from Janet has also been great throughout and I've received very speedy responses to any queries! Excellent value"

Create With Fibre responded:

"Thanks for your kind comments hope you enjoy the rest of the course"

Christine Borland reviewed: Learn to spin flax

"Perfect course tailored to individual skill levels and needs. A very patient and well informed tutor with many tips, suggestions and techniques to try when things get in a tangle! The zoom experience is intense and strangely exhausting though since the technololgy adds another layer of things to concentate on so multi-tasking energies are running high. Would thoroughly recommend."

Create With Fibre responded:

"thanks so much Christine for reviewing the course and for being so kind in your comments. delighted I was able to help with your unique and special work."
