Knitwear Designer Marianne Henio

We enjoyed a very interesting talk given by Knitwear Designer Marianne Henio, who shared with us her knitting history and how she has developed her skills over the years to become a designer of knitting patterns and how she comes to create a new design.

Marianne’s love of knitting was very evident. ¬†She had brought a selection of her sample garments, some of which were from her recent Winter Collection, and she talked us through the design features and what had influenced/inspired her in creating those particular garments.
