101 Things to do with an old Jumper


DSCF1931
If the moths or the dog or your washing machine mistook your favorite jumper for dinner then do not despair no matter how damaged; there is always something wonderful you can make from what remains. A ten week course can introduce you to ten reincarnations and you can learn some useful skills along the way, including knitting, crochet, stitching and embroidery. A certain amount of salvaged woolens can be provided but please note my supply may be limited.


Courses can be undertaken privately - in your own home or at a private venue.
Prices start at £50 for a two hour session and up to ten students can be catered for at this price. The classes can be tailored for a broad range of ages and abilities. I have some experience with special needs and am C.R.B. checked.
