April 2018 - MELANIE BERG

April 01, 2018

German designer Melanie Berg is a favourite of both clients and staff at Stephen and Penelope.

Melanie's use of colour and texture always leads to fun projects to make and wear. Her sometimes unexpected combinations can be elegant or simple, and work well in just about any combination of yarn and fibre.

Stop by the shop to see the magnificent details of True Colours, On the Spice Market, The Miller’s Daughter and Quicksilver in person.
