I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master.
I design clothing for children ranging in age from Newborn to about 18months and I am now beginning to expand my line to include older childrens sizes up to about 10 years.
I have been published in Knit Circus Magazine and also in Petite Purls, in addition to self publishing some designs.
