Your Class Tutor: Hiya my name is Jackie and my grandmother Ada taught me to knit when I was 11 and as that was over 40 years ago, knitting has basically been my hobby for most of my life. 
I have knitted everything you can imagine and my daughter had the best dressed dolls in Essex, along with every outfit you could possibly knit. Even now she picks an item from fashion magazines and says "mum can I have that".  My favourite things to knit are children's clothes, where I often adapt patterns for individuals.
I designed a child's dress collection which is "The Ada-Rose Collection" with knitted bodices and fabric skirts. These have gone all over the world i.e. New Zealand and Italy.  My other hobby is cross stitch embroidery mostly on 32 count linen and I can turn my hand to all sorts of embroidery.
