I have been a knitwear/fashion designer and author for many years as well as teaching knitting and crochet and lecturing in fashion and fashion history, which is my particular interest. I gain much of my inspiration by looking back and interpreting these ideas for today.
I am the co-author of A Stitch in Time, Vintage Knitting & Crochet Patterns, 1920-1949 and my designs and articles have been featured in the likes of The Knitter, Knitting, Yarn Forward, knitonthenet, Knitty and Selvedge.
I am currently working on the ‘Vintage Shetland’ project investigating hand knitted garments in the Shetland Museum Archive re-interpreting and creating patterns from them. You can read about all my creative projects and more on my blog.
