"What a fantastic day with Thea. I have been trying to use my own knitting machine for a few weeks with sketchy results. One day with Thea and the theory became practical. Came away having made two small items which I am quite proud of.
Would recommend this workshop to anyone just starting out with machine knitting."
"Very much enjoyed this ‘taster’ introductory day to knitting machines.
Thea was a lovely teacher, very patient and helped me out of some rather scrappy work.
Producing the two cute items was an accomplishment, even though by the end of the day I was very tired.
Having never even seen a knitting machine before, this introductory day would be a great litmus test for anyone thinking of buying a knitting machine.
I would thoroughly recommend this day.
(and thanks to Thea's mum for the excellent cake)"
"I had a lovely day with Thea, being reminded of the procedures and equipment to use a Knitting machine after many years of non- use. Although The Sat-Nav could not find the address, Thea was kindly waiting outside for me after the friendly assistance of neighbours. The work room was well equipped with three machines, various coloured yarns, tools, ironing board and tools, instruction booklet to keep and illustrations of previous projects completed. The venue was also Covid safe too. I was even able to bring my little dog, who has anxiety issues. She was very quiet however, which was a great relief for her. We had lunch in an adjacent lovely glass room and coffee and cake outside in the garden (as it was warm) provide by her mum. I achieved making two small projects and shared information about common interests. It was a glorious and fulfilling day and would really recommend this to other people making their first launch into machine knitting."
"This is a delightful day course, that is sympathetic to complete beginners. The day was very well organised that took COVID precautions seriously. It was lovely to be able to make a small item…which was fun and a great achievement!
Thea’s Worksop is a light and inspirational environment to learn the beginnings of a new skill.
I would definitely recommend this day course to others.
