Lucy Neatby is one of the most sought after instructors and is a fun traveling companion. Lucy finds joy in sharing techniques and her passions with others and is very inspirational. Lucy and her husband John moved from South Wales to Halifax in the early 1990's.


Lucy Neatby is now what some refer to as an empty nester since her kids have moved out on their own but her home and studio are far from empty with wonderful yarn and project workspace now replacing their space.
