Company is dedicated to bringing together friends and strangers to experience the magic of community that happens when we gather to share our common passion for knitting. We believe that time spent with others who share our passions is essential. We believe in the restorative power of community and in the ideas and inspiration that come from the moments we are with others. We want to share those moments with you, our fellow knitters.
Recognized for her minimal aesthetic and attention to fine detail, Julie focuses on designing knitwear that is simultaneously causal and elegant—a signature style that has developed over the years in her work as a visual merchandiser, art director and freelance designer. Her passion for knitting began in 2008, and quickly led her down the path of focusing entirely on knitwear design (finally finding the right niche for her BA in Clothing & Textiles). Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Julie spends her time designing as part of the in-house design team for Brooklyn Tweed and her own independent label.
Known for her original and unique construction techniques and her pairing of luxury fiber with elegant design, Catherine has developed an approach to hand-knitting that rethinks its traditional technical and design vocabularies and translates distinctive elements of couture dressmaking into refined techniques for the hand-knitter. Catherine teaches widely, designs for her eponymous brand, and is the author of The Ravell’d Sleeve.
KNITTING WITH COMPANY
Knitting with Company is a knitting retreat in the truest sense. An experience unlike any other in our knitting lives. We partner with colleagues that share our notion of community and endorse our vision for these events. We gather in a place that inspires calm and relaxation in order to truly unwind. We bring a few of our industry friends along with us and invite you to bring your friends, too.
We don't plan any formal classes or instruction. We're there to knit and to share our knitting with you. Bring one of our designs on your needles and if you need some help, all you have to do is ask. We'll be happy to answer your questions, demonstrate a technique, explain or clarify a pattern instruction. Or we can just talk about knitting. If you forget a needle or a tool, or change your mind about your project, or need more yarn, our wonderful hosts make sure there's a pop-up shop with everything you need.
We asked ourselves what our ideal knitting event would look like, and this was the answer. From that conversation, Knitting with Company was born. We believe that time spent with others who share our passions is essential. We believe in the restorative power of community and in the ideas and inspiration that come from the moments we are with others. We want to share those moments with you, our fellow knitters.
