Warriston

A while back, we mentioned that we’d be putting a kit together for Kate Davies’ lovely Warriston. Well it’s here. At last.

We mentioned quickly that the patterns come with Kate’s new digital magazine, Textisles. This was before we’d had a chance to look through it properly, but now we have and my goodness it is good. Seriously worth a read. It’s wonderfully researched, beautifully written and presented and is just generally one of those things that will make you want to curl on the couch and lose yourself – with a cup of tea, of course.

Also, there is an ultra creative collective of contemporary textile artists in Shetland who go by the name Text-isles. In fact, the group includes the Emma Blain of Aamos Designs who is a part of the J&S Cooperative and Andrea Williamson, who designed the Whalsay Aran. We’re working with the group on a little project at the moment, and can’t wait to see the results.

Also reminds me that we’ve got two new additions to the J&S Cooperative, which should be up shortly. Yoohay!
