In 2006 they opened their first studio shop, which sells all Cardigan products as well as exhibiting new product launches in the gallery. Visitors can come in to the shop, gallery and the connecting studio, where they can watch as designs are being made.

Thanks for posting Gius
I love the scarves but I'm not so fond of the rest of the stuff.. the Large Rosette scarve is amazing

I like the fact that you can watch the design being made, do you know if they're doing well?

Not sure, saann
But I assume so since she produces by hand
not sure if she has more employees in her company
Being able to work for yourself, a sign of stability imo :p

Also she works as a freelance consultant for other companies
providing ideas/inspiration in crochet, knit & embroidery
(would love to have this job myself! )

And I've seen her featured in a lot of places.. a popular textile magazine in the UK called Selvedge and also in BBC
So she seems well-known

alright,
but if it's possible to see the items being made she probably has more employees since she does lots of other stuff too and probably can't be in the studio often

I envy people with these kind of jobs too :p

I would love to hear from someone who has bought this stuff and hear about the quality
