Signatur Handknits & Signatur Knitting kits
I am happy to report that my highly talented team of knitters are all still busy knitting. They (and I) would be lost without our knitting. And at 94, my most 'experienced' knitter, Joyce, remains at the top of her game and has expertly knitted most of my hundreds of designs. While I usually pop a quick note into their knitting parcel, we're keeping in weekly contact to ensure we, and our families, are all healthy.
In Australia, like everywhere else, we are self-isolating, so like you, I am missing my favourite things, one of which is over 20 years of traveling to craft shows around Australia. I miss you and my exhibitor friends, so until we meet again....
Sunday 26th April 9am to 9pm
I love Handmade Canberra for its diversity, from regional wines, cheese and bread to hand made shoes, clothing, art, pottery and of course handknits!
What a wonderful opportunity to glimpse into the worlds and studios of designers.
Owner/designer Jane Slicer-Smith
In case you don't know who Signatur Handknits and Ozeyarn is - it's me, Jane Slicer-smith, my amazing knitters, Laura who keeps our quality stellar, and my friends below who help out at the studio or the craft shows.
I design hand knits in Australian Pure New Wool, working from my home studio on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
Every Signatur design is available as a ready-made garment or a knitting kit. Signatur Knitting Kits include knitting instructions, yarns and buttons. Simply click on a design below to see Jane's designs in their many colourway options.
