Hey there! I’m Martha Kilner,
The creator behind the Hook Me Up and founder Crafty Kilner.
I am an ex-primary school teacher and mum to three littles ones.
I learned to crochet when I was on maternity leave with my second child. I was used to being busy as a primary school teacher and even though having my babies was amazing, I didn’t really feel like I was doing anything for ME.
I decided I wanted to use my maternity leave to learn something new. I wasn’t sure what – a language, watercolour painting, an instrument, knitting…
I decided upon crochet. I wasted hours googling and researching what different terms meant, what was DK and chunky? What hook did I need? Which yarn was best for a blanket? How much would I need? Eventually I learned.
Learning to crochet led me on an exciting journey to start my own business, Crafty Kilner, and selling the many things I was making and teaching crochet from my home in north east London.
During the various lockdowns, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, school teachers around the world moved their teaching online. It was then I realised that people CAN learn online and the idea to share my crochet teaching ONLINE was born meaning I can help people around the world.
Running my business, working part-time and a mum of three, I know how hard it can be to do things for ourselves. Online modules are the perfect way to fit into your life, whatever stage you are at.
I don’t want people who are keen to learn to crochet to struggle. I want to accelerate them through the process so they can get to the point of knowing all they need to know to make beautiful things but also to quickly reach the mindful calm that crochet can bring by removing the hurdles.
I’m left handed can I still learn?
Absolutely – Learning to crochet feels awkward for everybody at first. I have taught left-handed students who manage perfectly well holding their hook in their right hand but all of my videos come in a left-handed version too if holding the hook in your left hand feels better.
Is there a lot of kit to buy?
No – all you need is a hook and yarn. I give full details in my course but for the first few weeks you only need a 6mm hook and 2-4 balls of chunky yarn (depending on how many colours you want for your granny squares). As you progress you will start building your collection of hooks and yarn but this doesn’t need to be expensive.
I did a taster session at a craft fair and I was hopeless!
The beauty of the modules is that you can play, pause and practise. Depending on the option you choose, you also have a weekly session with me on a group Zoom or in-person group session to coach you through any difficulties you might have.
What days and times are the group sessions?
