The 450th Anniversary Jacket was recently displayed on theย KCG stand at the Creative Crafts Show in Esher.ย It was knitted by KHF Treasurer and Membership Secretary, Tricia Basham, as part of her City & Guilds in Hand Knit Textiles.

Designed to tie-in with the 450th anniversary celebrations at the school where she then worked,ย this exquisite jacket was influenced by seventeenth-century textiles in the V&A collection, winning the V&A’s “Inspired by…” Fashion and Textiles Prize in 2012.

The photo of the 450th Anniversary Jacket on the KCG stand was taken by Emma Vining, another Knitting History Forum member and supporter whose knitwear design just made the cover of The Knitter again.

Congratulations to both!
