Instructor Jillian Carrozza began specializing in knitwear design at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City ten years ago.  She went on to study at the world-renowned Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London where she gained invaluable industry experience from internships at design studios in Europe, such as Knit-1 in Brighton, England and John Galliano in Paris, France.  Trained in both industrial and domestic machine knitting, the designer’s acclaimed graduate collection was entirely hand crocheted from original patterns for textile structures she engineered.  Having recently returned to the west coast from New York City, Jillian looks forward to sharing her knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with the knitting community of San Francisco.

She will be here at the shop at 11 AM on August 23rd to host a machine knitting demo.  Since we offer private lessons on machine knitting, joining us first for the demo will be a great way to figure out if the lesson will be right for you.  We’ll look forward to seeing you then!
