My favourite tuition guides

If you want to buy some resources, these are my recommendations:

A)  Janet Wilson's book - piccie below.
I found this most helpful. Good clear instructions with pictures. Simple patterns to start with. Lots of different techniques shown.
I go back to it again and again.

B) Christine Coleman's tuition DVDs.
Excellent guides. She takes you through each pattern, introducing new techniques. Clear instructions. And of course you can watch again and again. This is her website

You don't have to make all of the pattern. Choose bits you like to practise.
Have a go and if you get stuck give me an email on

Good luck and keep practising :-)

P.S. Don't forget your library!
