I began tutoring crochet workshops in 2015, at Stitch Studio in Ramsbottom, where I would design my own teaching materials and patterns to use in my classes.

A year later, in March 2016 I launched the Cotton Pod website as a home for my patterns and a base to sell the resources needed for my patterns. 

I look forward to meeting you and teaching you to crochet soon!
