Hi I'm Em!  I run ‘Knit with Em’ a small creative business operating in Dumfries and the surrounding area. I offer high quality knitting and craft classes for children, young people and adults. I am so passionate about spreading the joy of knitting and crafts to anyone who wants to learn! I would love to hear from you and welcome you, or your child, to one of my classes. Get in touch or follow me on social media if you’d like to hear about the services I am currently offering.

My daughter has just completed her first block of Knit with Em and loves it. She has learned so much already and is already onto her second project - would definitely recommend’. 



Em is such a patient teacher and has a great sense of humour so her classes are fun as well as productive. She is amazing with the kids she teaches and really connects with them to help them achieve what they aspire to. I worked alongside Em and saw her run both kids and adult knitting workshops & classes and she was thought very highly of by everyone. She’s a trustworthy role model for your kids and a friendly and supportive teacher to all!'

The workshop was very enjoyable and Em was a very good and patient teacher.'
