On Thursday evening we were happy to welcome Gudrun Johnston to the store for an event celebrating her pattern collection, The Shetland Trader – Book One!
She was lovely, and treated us to a slide show of gorgeous photos from the book’s Scotland photo shoot as well as images from her mother’s knitwear designs, one of Gudrun’s major inspirations.
We were treated to information on her design process, construction details, and a little story about her experience taking classes at WEBS! (Which, as the Education Manager here at the store, made me quite happy!)
Then, everyone was invited to examine, touch and try on the garments. This is a particularly fun aspect of every designer event. And, let me tell you, the garments are even more beautiful in person.
Thank you to everyone who came out to this event. And congratulations, Gudrun, on a wonderful pattern book!
