The Knitting Station was created as a spin off from working in the design and clothing industry for most of my life. I have never known a time when I was idly sitting without knitting needles in my hands when I was not at work in a garment factory or behind a sewing machine. Technically trained as a designer and pattern maker has brought me huge joy throughout my life.
From my work experience I gained an excellent knowledge of sizing and grading. Most of my patterns are made from the bottom up with traditional side seams which I believe is crucial for maintaining a garment's structure to ensure that all the hard work you put into your project keeps your finished garment looking good for many, many years to come.
I love to make garments that I can wear everyday, especially those that make me feel comfortable and with a sublime level of style.
Whatever your craft, we do wish you many happy hours of relaxation with Yarn in your hands!
