February 2018 - SUSAN CRAWFORD

February 01, 2018 1 min read

Our very special Designer of the Month for February is Susan Crawford. This Designer of the Month is actually coming to Amsterdam to show us her samples in person!

We first fell in love with Susan's work with her books A Stitch in Time Volume 1 and 2. The pair of books bring to life vintage period knitting patterns spanning the years 1920 - 1959. The pair comprise a gorgeous vintage pattern collection.

Susan's most recent book, The Vintage Shetland Project is the culmination of the several years Susan has spent researching early 20th Century knitting in Shetland. Susan has painstakingly recreated hand-knitted garments from the 1920s to the 1960s from the Shetland Museum's archives and created patterns from these vintage items.

Join us on 17 February in Amsterdam to meet Susan, view samples from the book and hear a presentation about this new project and to hear about the forthcoming book!

Samples from the book will be on view only during the event, and as a special treat, you can also shop Susan's line of yarns on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of February.
