What Is “Just for You”?
Just for You is Bev’s new approach to teaching knitting and crochet and offers you a range of options to learn, from one to one sessions to small home based classes. This has become necessary due to a change in Bev’s underlying medical condition and family circumstances.
Individual lessons – You choose what you want to learn and how often. So you might need an hour here and there to help with a challenging pattern or a series of lessons to help you get started one off for a Niggly Problem or a Course to get you going. Bev will come to you if your home is accessible to her or will meet you in a mutually convenient setting.
Learn with Friends – From a one off workshop to a series of lessons designed specifically for you and your friends, Bev will come to you and you get to learn in comfortable surroundings.
Learn at Work – An opportunity to get away from your desk and do something different during lunch! |You provide the room and advertise the lessons and I will develop short lessons that fit into the time you have available from 30mins – 1hour. Its been proved that leaving your desk and doing something creative can help overcome the post lunch slump! Plus you get to know other colleagues and make new friends!
Crochet or Knitting Party – Invite your friends around for an evening of creative fun with either knitting or crochet. Bev will provide a mini class, plus bring along a selection of hand crafted makes for you to buy and take orders for bespoke makes… so an ideal way to buy those special little gifts that show how much you appreciate someone!
Hen or Bridal Crochet – Bev can provide fun workshops, either at your home or in a community centre, including afternoon tea or lunch. Options include: making a bridal accessory, unique gifts, corsages, garters, hearts, ring cushions for example – please contact me to discuss how I can help you add a unique twist to your wedding day! Either make entirely yourself or embellish a selection of premade pieces.
