A-HA - an archive find!

You just never know what and whom you will come across in our fabulous archive library here.  Yesterday we found a knitting pattern in Family Choice.  We are unsure which year it was featured but it caused a "stir" in the office!


Graduates Final Collection - Twilley's of Stamford - Freedom Wool

Sophie Adamson of Heriot-Watt University of Textiles and Design used Twilley's Freedom Wool in her final collection called "Mutter Vogel" meaning Mother Bird. 

She will also be at New Designers from 29th June - 2nd July on stand T38, which is at the Islington Design Centre and is well worth the visit.

She has kindly allowed me to use a photograph of her final show and we wish Sophie well in her future career

Happy Knitting.



New to our website is our Errata/alterations link - under the Design Collections heading.  This will only be updated for all new patterns as and when (hopefully not too often) errata occurs.


Happy knitting.
