Lisa Dobbs 

Wee Woolly Wonderfuls 

I have always enjoyed the pleasure of creating unique handmade items, which are a welcome change from the usual, and often the gifts that are treasured, and kept.  I wanted to share the fun and enjoyment, and have designed fun, quirky kits so that people can enjoy crochet and knitting, from complete beginners to experienced crafters.
I also hand-make gifts to order from beautiful bunnies to personalised frames – a completely unique gift.  I welcome messages for custom items, if there’s something special you’d like making!
I’m proud to be a local small business based in Hull, and absolutely love what I do, and think it shows!

Janet Illidge

Reiki Therapist

I first qualified as a Reflexologist and loved how it could stimulate the body’s own healing ability to restore balance the mind and body. I then found myself drawn to exploring the energy-based practice of Kinesiology. It seeks to gently restore a free flow of balanced energy using muscle response testing.

I then came to my passion for Reiki, both as a Therapist and Master. Attuning people to the gentle healing Reiki energy has been a privilege. I love to see others develop their spiritual connection through Reiki and help them to discover their potential.
