Spend the morning at The Tangled Web with one of the industries top designers.

Jenny Watson has worked in the hand knitting industry for over twenty years and has worked as Chief Designer for Sirdar, Emu, Robin and Studley. In more recent years she has worked as a freelance designer for Noro, Queensland and Arucania. Living in a small Yorkshire (England) spa town of Ilkley, she is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, heart of the hand knitting industry, which is a constant inspiration to her.

During her visit she will discuss her background and how she came to be in the industry of knitting. Find out what inspires her and the thought process involved in the compilation of knitting patterns, as well as the ins and outs of publishing, from design to photography and book completion.

Later in the session there will be some hands on work while Jenny demonstrates her favorite knitting tips and techniques. Lots of knitted garments from her latest Noro book "City Girls" will be on hand to inspire you. This event is free but registration is required. Please contact the shop to reserve your seat.
