JAK & GEEGEE Classes!!

It’s exciting times at JAK & GEEGEE headquarters. My Ladies Wot Stitch friend Tracy and I are holding crochet classes at our local yarn shop, Aquarius Wool Shop. This is a first for both of us and we are really excited to start sharing a crafty knowledge. All the details of our first class are below so if you are local and would like to learn to crochet why not get in touch!



Would you like to learn a new craft? Want to learn to crochet but just don’t know where to start? Or do you just fancy a fun morning trying something different? Well why not come along to a beginners crochet class at Aquarius Wool Shop, Coxheath. Our first class will be held Saturday 21st September 2013, 10:30am – 12:30pm.


The class will be held by the lovely Tracy who will be teaching you how to make this cute granny square pin cushion.


This class is a great introduction to crochet. You’ll learn how to read and follow a simple crochet pattern, what the abbreviations mean, plus the basic stitches to get you started in the wonderful world of crochet!


All materials and patterns are supplied, along with refreshments, for the great price of £18.


We like to keep our classes small, only 6 per class, to ensure we offer students the best experience. So hurry and book your class before all places are filled (depending on demand an extra class date may be added).

Summer Holidays

Surely my blogging silence need no more explanation? The summer hols mean I have two hyper, “helpful”, monsters at home with me and I can honestly say they are cutting my sewing time seriously short.

So far we have had lots of fun, swimming, two trips to the cinema, camping with friends,





the beach and a whirlwind visit from my sister and soon to be bro-in-law all the way from the Isles of Scilly.

The boys loved their T-shirts thank you Auntie Frankie & Uncle Wes!


We aren’t even half way through the holidays and I’m bloody knackered!

As you can imagine with all this going on I’m finding it hard to get on with my long list of crafty projects. I just keep looking at my to do list in the hope it’s magically started completing itself. Having said that I have managed to keep up with orders so at least my customers are happy.

How are you coping with the summer hols? I hope you’re all enjoying them as much as we are here.
