  5. Patricia Kain (verified owner)

    Cathy was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble I recommend this to anybody. It was easy to park and the parking charge for 12 hours was £5 right nearby. Very friendly very unknowledgeable thank you so much I thoroughly enjoyed myself

    • Catherine Wright (store manager)

      Thank you Tricia, I really enjoyed it too. I hope you continue to have many hours happy spinning

  6. Meg C. (verified owner)

    Even though I was very slow at everything with my lefthand not having any fine moor skills after my stroke. Cathy was very patient with me and went over my drafting technique a few times. I ran out of time to play, so Cathy did it for me. I am happy to have done the course as I was booked on originally in March 2020 and that was cancelled obviously due to the pandemic. Very enjoyable day. I had lunch in the Ryder cafe with Cathy and another attendee.

  7. Jenine de Leie (verified owner)

    I am a complete beginner in spinning. I was shown patience and encouragement throughout the day. I even managed to take home some reasonable looking spun wool, I was very pleased with myself. Thanks so much 😊😊

    • Catherine Wright (store manager)

      Thanks for leaving a review Iris, it was a great day and your yarn was lovely!! Keep in touch and let us know how you're getting on

    A thoroughly enjoyable course! Cathy and her mum were extremely knowledgeable and fantastically supportive during the whole spinning process.
    Came away with much more respect for the humble spinning wheel and all those that can use them so easily!

    • Catherine Wright (store manager)

      Thanks Claire, I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. You were great company and spun really well.
