Two Articles Of Mine in The Knitter 69

The Knitter issue 69
I have two articles published in the latest The Knitter magazine, issue 69. It's a real privilege to be published in such a well-respected international magazine, and I always get a thrill when I see my finished work in print.

My first feature is a guest column on the importance of knitting shows both for vendors and knitters. Secondly I have a piece on the history of Ruddington's Framework Knitters whose industry was a way of community life back in the 19th century. I visited the museum back in December 2013 and met the lovely team who keep the area's history alive. What I was particularly impressed with was the manager, Paul Baker's, commitment to current artisan makers, seeing supporting local designer-makers as a way of celebrating and upholding the area's heritage.

I have a few more features commissioned for future issues of The Knitter - coming to a magazine stand near you soon!
