We’re excited to announce that Jane Ellison will be joining us for an event on Saturday, October 25, from 12 noon – 3 pm. Mark your calendars…
Jane is a fabulous knitwear designer and a very sweet person, with tons of experience in the knitting industry. She first completed a degree in fashion with a knitwear specialty, then worked with both Rowan Yarns and Debbie Bliss and subsequently published a multitude of knitting designs.
Her first book was Simply Noro, published in 2003:
She’s produced some of our favourite Noro books like Noro Knits, Naturally Noro, Pure Noro, Joy, and the latest, Noro Family.
Jane will bring loads of sample garments. She’ll talk about her experiences as a knitting designer and the design process. And she’ll share some of her experiences with the Mirasol Project in Peru as she’s seen firsthand the remarkable accomplishments of this program.
We’ve booked space at the UBC Golf Club for this event and the admission fee will be $10. Participants will receive a 10% discount on any purchases of Mirasol yarn or Jane’s books on the day of the event. Phone us at 604-228-1122 or send an email to reserve your spot. Should be tons of fun!
