Not that I celebrate halloween but due to my sisters birthday being close by and it happening to fall on a weekend it was an easy chance for a catch up when I returned back to Bolton for a family/friends weekend!!

My little sister turned 19 on the 4th of November so we decided to all get together as a family back in Bolton to give her her presents (which she had conveniently written in an email list to us all haha!!) She appeared to like them (whats not to like about posh make-up?!) and cute bags heehee!?!

On the 31st I met up with a lovely bunch of friends and we had a highly sophisticated meal (heehee!) before turning all 80's and going to watch a re-run of American Werewolf in London...I had never seen it before but would definitely recommend it for a cheesy night in!!

I also went and visited Caroline and David who we're really lovely and let me into their home to have a look at their spinning wheel and fleeces, They have the most amazing craft room with a hand made loom (made by David) and every type of fibre and craft implement you could ever think of!! I had a great time learning how to spin and a spinning wheel is definitely at the top of my christmas wish list now!!

After a leisurely morning with all the family, me and my sister both went our opposite ways (up to Leeds and down to London) with long journeys ahead of us...Megabus slightly failed me by being over an hour late but I guess I saved a lot of money on the ticket anyway!!


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.
