Knitting and Stitch Show Alexandra Palace...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, November 26, 2010
I forgot to do a little post about my time volunteering at Alexandra Palace, although very quiet at the British Hand Knitting Associations comfy corner it was nice to speak to others interested in knitting and I got to experiment with a few unusual yarns which was good! Having a quick look at some of the other stalls in the show, it was nice to see a good range of British yarns available - not many being naturally dyed (although there was an amazing one from Scotland!)

I also had a lovely chat with a representative from Rowan yarns who was telling me a little bit more about Prince Charles' Wool Project!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
