On Designing: From Swatch to Finish with Deborah Newton
IN THIS FASCINATING RETROSPECTIVE SLIDE PRESENTATION,
Deborah Newton highlights her designs
for Knitter's Magazine from Brocade Blouse in Issue
1 to a color-blocked lace jacket for Issue 108. She
explores her design process, tracing where the
ideas come from, how the sweater shapes evolve,
and how they translate into garment construction.
See how twin passions —swatching and finishing—inspire all aspects of
Deborah Newton's work.
This Fall marks 30 years since Deborah sold her first Aran-inspired
sweater to McCall's Needlework and Crafts. Join
us as she reflects on her place in the world of print and
discusses how the internet and social networking are
changing the way she views making knitwear.
