"Like many knitters, I’ve always loved making things. As a child I couldn’t find anyone to teach me to knit or crochet so I worked it out from instruction books.
My first completed project was a crocheted Italian flag for a geography project, when I was nine. I’ve never looked back.
After studying fashion and knitwear design in Montreal, I began a business designing and making hand knits that sold across Canada and the United States.
In 1990, I came to the UK and did an MA in textile design at St. Martins. Since graduating, I have taught and written books on many textile practices.
Most recently I have been working with beads and published a book called Creative Beading.
I chronicle my creative passions daily on my blog, jujulovespolkadots. Currently, I am fascinated by altering new and vintage ready-made clothing and planning a book on that subject.
I am passionate about combining felted, knitted, and crocheted wool with glass beads. The results show a vibrancy of colour and contrast of textures like no other craft." *Materials supplied but if you are working on a project already please feel free to bring it.
