A bit about Wendy:

Wendy has been a life long knitter and crocheter. Studied Fashion, Design and Pattern Cutting and has also been a dressmaker throughout the years. With a background of theatrical costume and bridal. All this has led to an understanding of the “fit of a garment” whether it be knitted, crocheted or sewn and adapting to fit your body shape.

She has been teaching knitting and crochet workshops for over 15 years, this also led to a period of Guest Presenting knitting, crochet, sewing machine and knitting machine shows on a couple of the major TV Shopping Channels, before moving to Cornwall.

Over the last couple of years she has also been making YouTube videos for some of her projects. Including technique videos to act as a back-up for her workshops. So you will always have something to refer back to afterwards!
