I’ve only been coming to Knit Night & Day for 2 or 3 months but have already managed to knit a couple of things I feel quite proud of due to the advice, expertise and kindness of the teacher and the other more experienced knitters. Knit Night is a lovely relaxed time in which I’ve been able to learn a new skill with good company, lots of ideas and cake! Karine, Edinburgh
Kerry teaching a Kids Knit class at Corstorphine Primary in Edinburgh
The very first Kids Knit Class – 2010
The story so far
Founder Kerry Kimber has always known that she wanted her four children to knit, believing that it was an important, life-enhancing skill. But she knew they would find it difficult to start with wanted to make sure she taught them in a way that would encourage and enthuse them from the start. So she spent some time considering how and when to approach it. In 2010 she showed her eldest two children how to make their own knitting needles and then they began knitting…
It turned out to be a rip-roaring success and very quickly Kerry saw the potential for teaching other children. Her experience as an award winning Art and Design teacher helped her to develop the Kids Knit Programme, a comprehensive course for children from the age of 5.
Kids Knit immediately took off and within a year Kerry had started to recruit other teachers to help out with the demand for classes.
When Knit Night & Day for adults and Young People Knit (YPK) for teens were added to the portfolio, Knitting For All Ltd was created to provide a hub for all these knitting activities to come together.
That was back in 2012, and since then the Knitting For All team have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in the delivery of our courses. We have established ways of doing things that really work. Our copyrighted patterns and carefully chosen yarns are a crucial part of our teaching technique, as is our approach to classroom management.
Now classes are provided in various parts of Britain and the Republic of Ireland and we continue to grow to cater for demand. With a solid business model in place, franchising was the obvious and best way to expand across the country. Our franchisees own their own businesses teaching Knitting For All programmes and running events. They enjoy a wealth of support, training and resources from Knitting For All to ensure that they can confidently run successful and popular classes.
