June 2019 - JEANETTE SLOANE

June 01, 2019

Jeanette Sloan is a designer, maker, tutor, and writer based in the seaside town of Brighton & Hove, England. She was taught to hand knit as a child by her West Indian mother and went on to study for a degree in Textile Design where she added machine knitting and embroidery to her portfolio of skills.

Her designs have been published in magazines like The Knitter, and as well as self-published patterns through Ravelry, she has also produced work in collaboration with Erika Knight for her eponymous yarn label.

Jeanette has a real passion for bright colour and particularly loves adding a modern flavour to traditional lace structures producing accessory designs that are both timeless and wearable.

When she isn’t knitting Jeanette works to raise the profile of BIPOC in the fibre community. She also loves to cook, entertain friends and relaxes by taking long walks by the sea.

This month in the shop you can visit samples of the Diamond Corner Shawl, Naomi Shrug, Dionne Shawl, and No 1 Skeete Road Shawl.
