Internationally-renowned knitting teacher, Beth Brown-Reinsel from Vermont, USA, is currently teaching throughout NZ.

We were delighted when she and her friend Yvonne visited us and toured the factory. Beth remembered buying her first Ashford spinning wheel in the mid-1970s after seeing it featured in The Whole Earth Catalogue.
Beth, who has written a number of books and DVDS, has a passion for traditional knitting and has kindly agreed to share one of her fabulous patterns in this year's Issue of The Wheel magazine.
