Virginia Burrow Design

Unique knitwear designs and handcrafted accessories. Many of my designs are based on pen and paper drawings which have been digitally edited and transformed into a format able to be read by my vintage (1980s) domestic knitting machine. I use a combination of locally sourced fine Australian merino wool and imported yarns to create modern textiles often with a quirky twist. All of my Japanese-made knitting machines are over 30 years old and have been lovingly restored back to their full glory. I am intending to start holding classes in my Katoomba studio on my collection of hand operated Singer and Brother standard, mid and bulky gauge models in the hope of rekindling interest in the use of these beautifully precision-engineered machines.
