A Stitch in Time.
Knitting has been a passion since childhood and the journey has led me here. Learning to knit and draw as a child. A vocation evolved.
A career as a fashion designer in Industry followed with international travel and designer collections shown in London, Paris and Milan.
Then a career as a fashion lecturer at several Universities and Colleges within the UK.
Today I work in my Design Studio, surrounded by beautiful yarns, Designing, compiling, hand knitting patterns, to share with hand knitters throughout the world.
A life of knitting and a stitch in time.

I accept Paypal payments. If you do not have a Paypal account or prefer to pay by credit card, you can still do this through Paypal.
Upon receipt of payment a link will be emailed to you via Etsy so you can download the PDF pattern from your Etsy Purchases page.

Returns and exchanges
Due to new EU legislation (13th June 2014) refunds are no longer accepted for digital files, once you have purchased the knitting pattern in digital file format there are no refunds. However if you encounter any problems with your digital download and purchase please contact me.
