The Return of Deborah Newton on the Yarn Thing podcast with Marly Bird.
This episode took place because Deborah’s newest book came out right after she visited with us last time and she ASKED if she could come back to share it and another fun thing she’s planning. We LOVE that!
DeborahNewton has been designing professionally for knitting magazines, yarn companies and for Seventh Avenue for over 30 years. Her first book, the classic DESIGNING KNITWEAR, has been in print since 1990. Her book FINISHING SCHOOL: A MASTER CLASS FOR KNITTERS was in Amazon’s Top Ten Craft Books for 2011. Deborah hopes that her most recent book GOOD MEASURE: KNIT A PERFECT FIT EVERY TIME will change the way knitters think about choosing sizes in a pattern, and how to alter patterns successfully! Deborah also writes a regular column for Vogue Knitting magazine, sharing her professional expertise on a wide range of knitting topics.
Deborah teaches often and excitedly about her favorite knitting topics: design, pattern writing, finishing and fit. And she loves to share her enthusiasm in classes about illustration, cable knitting and Scandinavian motifs. This year she is pleased to be finally sharing a goal she has had in mind for over 20 years — she will be leading a 4-Day workshop in all aspects of Knitwear Design. The event will take place in September of this year 2017, hosted by North Light Fibers on Block Island. For more info, here is a link. goo.gl/WKQpJk
