I’m saddened to announce that we’ve been unable to reach an agreement regarding the contract and as a result I’ve unfortunately had to pull out of knit camp. If you were booked onto my classes you should receive an email from the organisers offering a substitute or refund, please contact them if you have any problems. I was looking forward to teaching these, so I’m terribly sorry it’s come to this, thank you for understanding.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
