le recyclage is featured in Machine Knitting Monthly

Its great when my millinery work is featured in the press and I was delighted when Keith Newman of Highlights PR contacted me to say that Machine Knitting Monthly had featured me again, this time the article highlights one of my recycled pieces - le recyclage.

I loved reading their take on my work and how it was relevant to their readership. The final paragraph is particularly poignant - when editor Anne Smith exalts her readers to delve into the back of their "stash" cupboard to pull out an abandoned project, and taking inspiration from my purchase of an old lambswool jumper from Oxfam, bring their projects back to life, too!

Whirlwind trip to London Hat Week

by Margaret Woodliff | October 23, 2016 | 0 Comments

Brilliant trip to London for launch parties of The MillinerXArtisan exhibition & The Cupola international hat exhibitions to mark London Hat Week. 

A full week in London from Oct 6 - 13th saw me attend the launch parties and see my pieces Weft, Heald Wires, and le recyclage displayed in dramatic settings; attend the book launch for Stephen Jones latest and hear him interviewed by Hiliary Alexander; attend trade fairs, workshops and fit in lots of networking with old and new friends, and lots of milliners of course! A brilliant week and managed to take in Undressed at the V&A, too!!

Thank heaven's for a great AirBnB. What a week! Wow - came home for a rest!
