Signatur Handknits road trip!
...knitting fun from Sydney to Bendigo
Hold onto your needles! I'm on the road again taking new designs, new kits and colourways from Sydney via Canberra to Bendigo. All show dates and details are below. I can't wait to see everyone again after a few cancelled events.
Sydney markets rained out? Visit the studio...
It was rather frustrating for all of us to have both Artisan Markets in Sydney rained out: Woodstock in May and the Coal Loader markets in June. On the positive side it was great to have customers seek me out here at my Killarney Heights studio. I am pretty flexible but always call first please to ensure I'm here.

Sydney Quilt & Craft Fair... Signatur & shrink your entry fee
The next show for Signatur in Sydney is the Sydney Quilt & Craft Fair from July 3rd to 6th. It's an amazing event full of classes and suppliers plus a brilliant quilt exhibition. 

Entry fee is $24 or $20 with early bird discount. To help out, just mention this newsletter to Jane when you get to the Signatur stand and you'll get $10 off knitting kits (over $100) and $20 off a garment purchase.

And like all shows, if you know which kit you want a week before the show, I'll bring it and you can also save yourself postage.

I love to take classic stitch patterns and add an extra twist & added detail

Blending traditional stitch patterns into new designs is so much fun. I like to create Jacket styles, easily achieved by removing the hemline rib band and replacing it with an eye-catching detail.

If you have already knitted one of my designs you'll know how knitting the buttonbands as part of the front of the garment achieves brilliant results. 

Take the opportunity, at a show or Jane's Sydney Studio, to try on a sample garment before you even pick up your needles!
What's in a Signatur knitting kit?

Signatur Knitting kits include Jane's original pattern, her Signatur Australian wool and matching buttons. 

Jane takes the idea of a 'stitch sampler' into both the 
Byron Aline Coat and above in the Split Texture Jacket
Both these designs are true favourites.

There are 33 designs uploaded onto my new shopify website. My original sigknit website has 77 designs!
At craft shows and markets I display 100-120 garments, with several colourway options as well as size options per design. In newsletters I will be featuring archive designs. If you'd like to see one of these designs at a show then please email me to bring the design to the show. and this newsletter will continue for ages. Orders can still be placed on as I've decided to maintan as a design archive.
If you catch Jane at a show in Australia you'll get the chance to try on a design before you even pick up your needles!
Textured Scarf Knit Class is emailed to you, the class steps you through seven stitch patterns email jane@sigknit for a free pattern


Stitch patterns can alter both the stitch and row tension.

The Textured Scarf knitted over 20sts and 7 stitch patterns each knitted for
18 rows. The image left shows the vast difference between the bottom edge knit garter and the ribbed section above the garter st.

Hats and Wraps keep fingers busy between big projects

I do sell hats and wraps as ready made pieces. This lovely lady (left) bought a matching Wave Wrap in Mustard Fleck and matching Wicked hat!
Thank you for letting me use this image.

We are always looking for a small project to keep our
needles occupied. Hats and Wraps are ideal and also make brilliant gifts. Check out new colours in Azteca Jade/Brown and Autumn. In fact, see all the colours of Azteca, Azteca Fine and Joker on:
