Knitting up a Storm!

How very exciting!  Romany Crafts is very proud to announce Knitting up a Storm's first beginners knitting class.  The class will start on Monday 17th September 2018 at 8pm to 10pm in the Tesco Community Room, Fleetsbridge Tesco, Poole, and will run for 6 consecutive Mondays.  If you would like to book a place, please email nikki@romanycrafts.co.uk or contact us via the "contact" page.

The class will provide practical teaching on everything to get you started with your knitting, from casting on, to reading a pattern, to increasing, decreasing, needle sizes and yarn types through to casting off and finishing off an item.

There will also be a Facebook group for those who attend to share their items, questions and issues in between the classes, so there will be nothing to stop you knitting in between the classes either.

Not sure if committing to a 6 week class is right for you?  Why not come along to a taster session to give it a try.  There is a nominal charge of £2.50 per person for the taster session and the next one will be on Friday 7th September 2018 at 3.30pm to 5pm.  If you would like to come along or get more information about the taster sessions, please email nikki@romanycrafts.co.uk or via the "contact" page.

That's it for now.......very much looking forward to welcoming more people into the world of knitting!

Exciting news......

Drum roll please..........

Romany Crafts is pleased to announce brand spanking new knitting classes for anyone who would like to return to knitting, who has never knitted before or just want to brush up on existing skills within the Poole area of Dorset.

"Knitting up a Storm" will be run on a weekly basis and you can bring your own yarn and needles, or use some of our needles to get your started, but you will need to bring your own yarn.  The venue and times are yet to be confirmed, but if you are interested in attending a session, please get in touch and get yourself on the list.

The sessions will include things such as casting on, casting off, basic knitting stitches, how to read a pattern, what yarn to buy and use, what needles to use, increasing, decreasing and any other knitting queries.  It will also be an opportunity for those who have hit a snag with their knitting to come along and get some advice on how to get back on track before ripping the whole lot back or giving up!

All levels of knitter are welcome and the sessions will be charged at £10 per person per week.

To get yourself on the list, just contact us via the "contact us" section of the website, clearly stating you would like to reserve a place and as soon the venue and times are confirmed, we will let you know.

Happy crafting everyone!

Well....here we go.......!

So, here we are.  Finally.  Romany Crafts has a website.  For the last 7 months we have be working from Facebook pages and Etsy, which have been great, but it's so nice to finally give Romany Crafts a shiny, lovely, sparkly new home.
