Tamsin, is absolutely wonderful! We've just had a crochet workshop, held at Magpie & Hook in Bideford, and 4 total beginners have come away with good looking baskets. She's a fantastic teacher and we will definitely be coming back. Thank you!

Incredible service! I ordered something VERY last minute for Christmas and the owner Tamsin was so thoughtful and kind to ensure it got posted out the same day. So very much appreciated.Wonderful concept for gifts for a budding or beginner crafter – I know the recipient is going to love it! Thank you!

I've bought quite a few gifts lately from The Left Hookery and I'm always so impressed with the quality of Tamsin's work and how quickly she can hand make such beautiful items. My friends loved their presents and I hope to by more for myself when I move in to my new home! Thank you :)

Lovely little shop with a fantastic choice of Bobbiny yarn. Tamsin uses this yarn to make her wonderful baskets which I have purchased in a few sizes. The baskets are well made, sturdy and have multiple uses. Tamsin has a great eye for colour and I love her little baskets which make perfect little gifts at a good price point. So if you enjoy crocheting you can’t go wrong with bobbiny yarn and one of Tamsin’s patterns, if crafting isn’t your thing then there is plenty to buy ready made in an array of colours 🧶

The actual goods, inlduing the packaging, were also exquisite.
