Yarn Over Coffee was set up in 2013 by Petra. She wanted to provide fun knitting and crochet experiences for complete (and probably nervous) beginners. It all started around her kitchen table in the evenings, after her children went to bed. As they grew older, Petra began offering lessons, workshops, and craft groups around Yate and Bristol. She's met lots of wonderful people since and is happy to say many of them are still workshop regulars.
During the lockdown, when she was unable to run any lessons, Petra still wanted to help people learn how to knit and crochet. With her two children's assistance, Petra created Hooked Kits for Kids - easy knitting and crochet kits for children. Since life began to reopen, Petra's expanded her original workshops and craft groups' offerings. This has introduced lots of new makers to the Yarn Over Coffee community. Whether you're an adult knitter or have children who're keen to crochet - Petra will be happy to help!
