Virtually as good as the real thing! Make the most of being at home

Treat yourself in some creative me time

We really hope you are all staying safe and home and taking care of your physical and mental health at this difficult time. We made the decision to go online to do our best to carry on supporting you and inspiring your creativity through virtual teaching and social sessions. The response so far has been amazing and we would like to thank all of you for your stock orders, attendance at Virtual woolly wednesday, purchasing our online sessions and your kind messages on social media and by email, we really couldn't do it without you. I hope you enjoy looking at what we have planned so far and look forward to sharing more workshops and courses with you in the weeks to come.

Take care, stay at home and keep creating, love Karen and StraightCurves Team x x x 

Cushion Crochet Alongs for all levels

We are very excited to have developed some of our existing courses into online crochet alongs supported by Karen to varying degrees. There is a beginners, intermediate and advanced option and they are all bookable online now.

Virtual Woolly Wednesday is FREE and going strong in the morning every wednesday usual times. We have suspended evening woolly as no one was coming online but can reopen on request so let us know if you fancy it and we can start it up again! We do have a crowdfunder for those who want to support this session.
