Kate Atherley teaching here!

Yabbadabbadoo! Next year’s teaching calendar is going to be awesome. Kate Atherley is teaching here! Kate is a knitting legend, lead technical editor for Knitty and author of several books. Canada is her home so make the most of her trip to the UK whilst you can!

You can choose between Introduction to pattern design (Kate has written the only book for budding designers on the subject), Introduction to gloves (conquer the fiddly bits!) and a mega-cool knitter’s trick, knitting one sock INSIDE the other aka Two Socks in One: The War & Peace Method.
Kate is here in Cambridge the weekend of 25th/26th February.

You can find out more and book online here.



Visual styling with Emma Mitchell

“I first started following the jeweller Emma Mitchell, (aka silverpebble2) because I was drawn to the beautiful images she posts. There is a lightness of touch and attention to detail in her approach that is very calming” says designer and author Sarah Hazell.  You can learn what makes Emma’s Instagram account so followable (she has over 45,000 followers!) with Emma herself here on July 23rd, then apply it to your own webshops, blogs and media feeds. Book online here.
