Sue & Bill Chitty specialise in teaching people to learn how to spin, weave, dye,
make felt or knit. Courses are run at Hilltop by Sue who earned her Bradford Diploma
in Hand Spinning and Weaving in 1985.
In order to maximises the student’s learning experience all of Sue’s courses are
‘One to One’. The benefits to the student are that they do not have to share the
tutor’s time or skill with others. The course fee is all you pay, there are no hidden
extras for things like fibres or dyes.
For an insight on what a One to One course with Sue could entail visit the TUITION
page of this web site.

We have altered the way we charge for UK MAINLAND POSTAGE. It is now based on the TOTAL ORDER VALUE. Regular visitors will notice that although Ashford have increased some of their prices from 1st February 2015 many prices have been reduced due to the change in postage charges. We hope that this new method will offer even greater value for money.
