We know how empowering it is to enable others - to start their own creative projects and tell their own stories. That’s why we’ve decided to share our customers’ stories* to highlight their aspirations and challenges and share that wonderful sense of accomplishment you get from learning something new. At Stitch & Story we want to share our love of crafting – encouraging others to tell their own stories and create remarkable memories.
Quay first got into knitting almost four years ago when Stitch & Story were looking for a beginner to test designs and kits on. Hooked on our super soft yarns and easy to wear garments, her confidence grew and she's now one of our regular Saturday morning workshop teachers!
I was never a particularly confident knitter and hadn't attempted anything more complicated than a tiny knitted square! Stitch & Story were really determined to make their projects super easy to follow and naturally I became a regular guinea pig for everything from the Luca Pom Hat to the Hadley Jumper.
I have since knitted several of their kits as treats for myself, as well as for friends and family, including the Lola Pom Slippers, Easy Slumber Socks, Sophie la girafe: Sophie's Hat and Mateusz Snood... it never gets old!
I now teach the knitting workshops on Saturday mornings, passing on the same skills that I learned through Stitch & Story and encouraging people who - like me once - either lacked confidence in knitting or who had never really thought to try it out.
I do my best to adapt the workshops to every individual and it's the best feeling to enable everybody, regardless of experience, to pick up a newfound creative skill that they will enjoy long after the workshop. I always tell new knitters, 'If I can learn how to knit, anybody can!'
