Testimonials... 

"Learning how to knit with Alice was an absolute pleasure not to mention so rewarding : in just 3/4 classes you are equipped with the essential techniques to start knitting. Alice would adapt to everyone's level and personal objective with great patience and pedagogy. It was super fun and relax but at the same time, I was so happy to start making real stuffs! She also gave us so many tips like where to look online, where to buy great yarns etc. I absolutely recommend!"

- Maelle

"I have been following Alice’s knitting lessons lately and it amazes me how much I’ve learned in just a very few hours. Right after our first lesson I could already make a simple scarf in garter stitch and after two lessons I managed to make a jumper for my son! I didn’t expected it to be so easy but Alice makes it very easy. Her explanations are very insightful and clear, she provides with lots of handy tips, and knitting together with her is real fun."

- Conchi  

"Learning how to knit with Alice was fun and insightful. She absolutely loves what she does, so her explanations and lessons make you fall in love with knitting from the very first lesson. I have knitted a scarf for my grandma straight after finishing the classes - what a pleasure it was to knit it myself and give it for her as a present!"

- Anastasia

"Alice is a brilliant teacher and I absolutely enjoyed all of my classes with her! She is patient and enthusiastic and her passion for knitting is contagious. I was crafty when I was younger but seemed to have lost the spark for it in the last few years. I'm very happy I chose to renew that energy for craft with knitting & Alice was excellent in encouraging me. Since I finished my classes, I have continued to knit and am a proud owner of a self-knitted blanket! I strongly recommend Alice if you are interested in learning a new skill in a fun way."

- Anusha

"Alice is a dedicated, patient and fun teacher. After only three sessions, she managed us to give us the confidence to explore the knitting world by ourselves. We were complete beginners and we loved it!"

- Marine 

"Alice has a passion for anything related to wool and needles and that includes her students.

Looking for presents to take back to my friends' babies in Bucharest, I discovered some gorgeous knitted baby shoes and realized that this might be one of the nicest presents one might give. The only problem was that I had no idea how to make them and I believed one would only be able to knit them after at least a year of knitting experience. But I decided to google it...and Alice's website showed up. After only two lessons I was able to knit them. And that was thanks to Alice's way of making me realize that knitting is a lot about putting your feelings into the things you do. Because this is how she works. And she works great!

It turned out to be the best present I gave myself (and it was not even planned for me)."

- Catalina  (see what Catalina knitted during our lessons here)

"I enjoyed every minute of our lovely lessons and I especially enjoyed Alice's company and the entertaining chats with all the ladies.

Alice is warm and easy to take instruction from.  Her instructions are always clear and straight forward.

Alice is a natural born teacher with an encouraging word always at hand."

- Jonilla  

 Alice is a fabulous teacher: she's patient, kind and full of energy! From our first lesson she made me feel that I could totally do this, even if I hadn't been knitting for almost 15 years...I enjoyed every minute of our lessons: she removed all the obstacles between me and my creative side, which is what great teachers do! Needless to say that I highly recommend her knitting course!
