This week Kathy talks with Louisa Harding
Louisa calls in from VK Live and chats with Kathy about her early days taking pattern cutting courses at college and bringing her knowledge of sewing and garment making to the art of hand knitting.
She also talks about the long road from seeing new yarns at an industry trade show to designing, photography and bringing them to market. Louisa is lucky enough to work with her photographer husband to bring an easily identifiable look and feel to her brand.
