    This was the first course I attended at StraightCurves and it was brilliant. I am not a naturally creative or crafty person but Karen was incredibly patient with my complete lack of talent and over the weeks I completely fell in love with crochet and, several years on, I still pick up my hooks almost every day. This course is highly recommended, though should come with a warning that both crochet and StraightCurves courses & workshops are addictive!

    I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to crochet. I picked up the different stitches at varying degrees of ease and Karen was very patient and with supportive if I got stuck on anything. She is an excellent tutor and managed to teach a class of 6 ladies at various stages in our crochet projects ease and endless patience. I’ve fallen in love with crochet and have done other courses since completing this one. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to crochet.

    A really well taught course. I learned many techniques that will help me with further projects. For beginners or people who haven’t crocheted for a while this course is perfect!

    Loved this course. I’m sorry it has come to an end. I’m left handed and this was no problem for Karen who adapted things and made it easy for me. Karen is a patient and knowledgeable teacher. Looking forward to more crochet courses.

    Beginner’s crochet course with Karen was fab. She’s extremely patient, explains things very well and a lovely lady too. I will be returning to do another course as it was very enjoyable.

    I really loved this course. The sessions were held in a room lined with wool – what’s not to love about wool ?! Tea and biscuits added to the cosy , friendly atmosphere. I had some basic knowledge of crochet but Karen patiently took us through the basics with a different challenge each week. I feel much more confident now and am enthused about building on my learning. This was my first experience of Straight Curves. I was really sorry it ended but will definitely be back. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn to crochet. Karen is a lovely tutor who makes learning enjoyable and fun.
