  1. Hi
    I would like to introduce myself,Gary Kennedy of

    I would love to offer your group a free design to download from my site – just enter the coupon code : craftclub
    in the box provided on the check out page of the site – you can choose from over 400 designs – I would be so interested to hear what my friends in the US thought of intarsia projects.Do take a quick look at the ‘large Photo gallery on the homepage for some great images.

    During the 80’s and 90’s we were the leading company worldwide producing intarsia knitting patterns (picture knits) – we had a customer base at that time of 70,000 knitters.

    After retiring around 13 years ago,travelling,parenting ,living in southern France,the rainforest of Australia and the far east,this week I am launching a new intarsia website which I hope will breathe some new life into this style of knitting.We are talking currently with the UK Hand Knitting Association about link ups and will be featured on the Craft club UK website very soon.

    Our past booklets which were only £2.50 each back then are still sought after by collectors today on Ebay and Amazon sometimes selling for £20.00 – £50.00 each , so with the renewed interest in knitting I hope to appeal to our past collectors and the new generation of knitter.

    I would be happy to hear your thoughts

    Best wishes
