For women who are feeling stressed at the thought of retirement and are looking to find a sense of purpose...

This is for you if you:

 Enjoyed craft in the past but not had time to pursue your creativity for a while
Used to enjoy knitting and crochet, but need of a refresher
Turn to comfort eating under stress but it’s difficult keeping your weight under control
Reach for a cigarette when feeling tense although intend to stop smoking
Have high blood pressure (hypertension) and want to keep it under control
Want a hobby to take with you when you are on the move


… but you don’t want to:

X Spend time in the gym

X Buy costly home exercise equipment

X Struggle to order hard-to-find tools and materials

X Take weeks of practice before you start to see results

X Find large areas of space to practise

Here's what some of my clients say about working with me:


"We were most impressed"
"keen to do more"


“Thank you Kay for a fab knitting class with our eager little novices. You were very patient and got our group of 6 year olds to focus and persevere for 2 hours. We were most impressed. They all loved it and are keen to do more ! Goody bags were brilliant with their starter kit. Really appreciated you adapting how you taught and the notes for the left handed members of the group highly recommend”

"Kay was very patient"
"highly recommend her"


“Kay came to my rescue at the last minute when I became stuck on a crochet pattern I was following. After just an hour private lesson she had sorted out the problem for me and helped me finish the shark I was making for a Christmas present. Kay was very patient and I would highly recommend her as a crochet teacher”
