Get Involved with Yarn Academy

Whilst I am of course ridiculously excited to welcome new members when I fling open the doors to members on Black Friday, I am also inviting a wide range of folk to join in as tutors.

If you have a business skill or are a real world teacher in any form of yarn craft then please get in touch.  I amlooking to expand the skills of the yarn community as a whole and I alone cannot do this.  I’m looking for others with the skills to share.

I really want to learn how to spin, dye, write a compelling pattern romance and sadly I still think I suck at photography.

So you have an idea of what on offer here at Yarn Academy I have cobbled together an overview.  Please get in touch to discuss how we can work together for the that win win I love so much.
