Hooky Buddies Crochet Adventure 2020

Everything was BEAUTIFULLY ORGANISED and presented

I was provided with a PERSONALISED bag, booklet and everything I would need to complete my first project (plus a few mini ones along the way).

Oh and we got tea and cake!

Claire is amazing so if you’re looking for something new to help you CHILL OUT, take a look at all her classes.

I wonder what I’ll make next!

A lovely RELAXING day with Claire and Lisa.

The tuition is always carried out in a FRIENDLY & FUN manner.

The events are good for BEGINNERS to the MORE EXPERIENCED.

The materials provided are always of a HIGH QUALITY.

This is the third craft session I have attended and I have really enjoyed each one.



I would definitely recommend
