My name is Joanna & I live in Northamptonshire, UK.
I am a textiles artist, specialising in knit & have been selling my designs since 2012. I am a tutor in textiles & dressmaking, working in the Northamptonshire & Oxfordshire area. I hold City & Guilds in Textiles & Fashion. I tutor privately to children & adults.
I have worked on many pantomime & dance productions, designing & making costumes, over the last 30 years.
I love the texture of wool, and the repetitiveness of knitting, I call it mind yoga. My dolls are created from a variety of inspiration which include my interest of historical and national costumes. My dolls are based on Grodnertal/ Dutch Wooden Dolls. My work is completely original and my designs are simple to make. All my knitting patterns are worked flat, with two needles, but they are easy enough to knit on the round.
For any information about my patterns, or tutoring. please contact me on:
