    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.

    A great introduction to crochet, Karen is a great teacher and put us all at ease. I was amazed about how much we all learnt and the cool things we got to make from crochet flowers to a gecko. Thank you, did not want it to end so soon. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn crochet.
