Please visit Mary Kilvert’s beautiful shop at the top of Catherine Hill in Frome. A treasure trove of pattern and colour, the shop is full of Kilvert’s fairytale illustrations, dry-felted sheep clad in hand-knitted Fair Isle, linen cushions, fine bone china mugs and now Selvedge Magazine. Mary designs and makes her products from her studio above the shop and works closely with British Manufacturers to produce her delightful collection of gifts and homeware. Take a look at Mary’s website here.

The V&A described Patricia Roberts as “the first British designer to elevate hand knitting to the realms of high fashion” so any knitters with moderately good skills and the desire to gain more should consider her forthcoming workshop at Les Soeurs Anglaises. Over five days participants will be guided through techniques, including the intarsia method used for her patterns and yarns.
