JOIN US AS WE WELCOME SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE DESIGNERS.
SATURDAY 6 & SUNDAY 7 OCTOBER
Shelley Husband is one of Australia's leading crochet designers and teachers. When not traveling from one side of the country to the other sharing her love of crochet, you'll find her living on the south west coast of Victoria with her hubby and teenager in a tiny dot of a town by the ocean.
Shelley has crafted most of her life, trying "all of the crafts" over the years. These days she spends most of her time with a crochet hook firmly planted in her hand. Having discovered a natural knack for crochet about six years ago after a break of a few decades, she hasn't looked back, creating hundreds of Granny Square patterns. Recently Shelley released her first printed book called Granny Square Flair - 50 Fresh, Modern Variations of the Classic Crochet Square.
Shelley loves nothing more than designing new patterns aiming to extend her own and our crochet skills, gently challenging and encouraging us to create timeless, classic pieces sure to be admired and appreciated.
Seamless crochet is a real passion and she has many tips and tricks to make our crochet look the best it possibly can, using techniques she has refined and tweaked over the years. When not designing crochet, you can find Shelley teaching crochet. You can also find her on most social media channels as 'spincushions'.
We're thrilled to be welcoming Shelley to Skein Sisters for a series of workshops on the weekend of 6 & 7 October. Come along and join in the fun. We know you'll be hooked!
LIBBY JONSON (TRULY MYRTLE)
FRIDAY 23, SATURDAY 24 AND SUNDAY 25 NOVEMBER
Libby is a knitting pattern designer living in beautiful New Zealand with her husband & four kids. She loves to design garments & accessories that are feminine without being fussy, flattering & easy to wear. As a mum, she understands that life is full of interruptions so her patterns are full of fun techniques that are simple to learn and they're written clearly so they're easy to follow.
When living in England, she rediscovered knitting after the birth of her fourth child. Now, she lives in rural New Zealand and knits every day, sews most of her own clothes, does a heap of cooking and makes things as much as she can.
Libby produces a wonderful podcast almost every week, and a mini-mag every month. If you haven’t read or heard them yet, then, as she suggests, make a cup, grab your knitting and join her. She loves to chat, and I’m sure you’ll soon feel like she’s your best friend come over for a visit! You can find out more about her at trulymyrtle.com
