This summer has been a bit different as not only have I been knitting (and knit travelling – the photos show coastline and sheep from these travels), I’ve also been stitching and generally doing a lot of sorting out.

Earlier in the summer I made the finishing touches to a brand new book – of which there will be much more very soon and you can click here to receive my newsletter with the latest updates. I also started to research and photograph ideas for some new work – for products and collections – and there will be more on this too…

I’ve also been doing a huge amount of sorting through years of accumulated yarn, fabric and ‘stuff’ in my attic to make way for lovely new studio space (for all the knitting and stitching there is to do).
Brighton is a vibrant, arty place and while there are new studios popping up – Tutton & Young’s lovely Atelier51 is one very fine example – affordable, accessible and acceptable studio space gets harder and harder to find. Over the years of living in Brighton I’ve had several studios, and have slowly gravitated from being in and around the North Laines to working from home (about a 10 minute cycle ride from the centre). I know I’m lucky enough to have my own home – which albeit relatively small, does have an attic to expand into, so for now I’m ok. But for lots of artists, makers and designers it is tough and can be really expensive – and not only in Brighton.
I thought this article in May and Junes issue of Crafts Magazine by Rosy Greenlees from the Crafts Council was pertinent and made interesting reading…
