Claire, Tollcross 

"Kids Knit is great, you get to make whatever your imagination tells you, you can chat with your friends and there is lots of fun and crafty things to do."

"Knit Nights are great for everyone. Not only did I learn a new skill but it also gives me the chance to socialise. I also found them a great way to de-stress after a busy day with the kids/work. They are fantastic nights and I can't wait till the next one".

Louise,  Knit Night & Day, Portobello

"Eilidh’s Knit Nights are a great place to bring your knitting questions, learn new techniques or just hang out with fellow knitters. It doesn't matter what level you're at, Eilidh makes sure everyone gets the attention they need. There's always plenty of chat and laughter around the table even when you've all walked in as strangers, it's a very welcoming environment".

Liz,  Knit Night & Day, Portobello

"I tried to learn to knit before - someone showed me how to - but it was only when I came to Kids Knit that I understood - as the teacher knew how to help me”

Sophie, Kids Knit, Lenzie

"In an era of increased technology use by children, I am pleased that my daughter is developing a hobby in knitting. Kids Knit classes have helped Cara gain a skill and a focus that she can continue to develop, while having fun with other children.”
