Jane Slicer-Smith
Jane Slicer-Smith, author of 'Swing,Swagger, Drape: Knit the Colors of Australia, joins STITCHES from her Signatur Handknits studio in Sydney Australia. Jane has a flair for style with garment styling and colors and has created classes themed around her winter 2014 design range. Let her bring some colors to your needles, from simple striped Miters, a color trim for a touch of Chanel style, or easy steps of intarsia and Fair Isle (stranded). She uses cables within many of her designs not just for texture but also styling and loves to take texture into new directions. Jane generously shares hints, tips and techniques which she applies to her ready to wear collections and knitting kit designs each year.
