Guest Speaker for February 2012

Kim Witcher came to speak to us this month. She describes herself as a Knitwear Designer but she is more than that. She creates amazing garments from unusual yarns for the stage, film and television. Did you realise that what appears to be chain mail is often knitted cord with some fabric paint on it? Neither did I still I saw it close to. It has the look of chain mail, and the flexibility necessary to move on on stage etc.
We were all fascinated. We were quiet, listening to her every word and when she had finished her talk we continued to ask her questions.
Thanks Kim for an interesting and enjoyable evening.
