Sedona Knit Wits is proud to present world-renowned knitwear designer Norah Gaughan. Norah will lead two workshops at the shop on Tuesday, May 30th.

Norah Gaughan served as design director for Berroco Yarns and JCA Yarns, designed for Adrienne Vittadini, and published patterns in all the leading knitting and textile magazines. An independent designer since 2014, she juggles design projects and traveling to teach at festivals and yarn shops.

Although known to American knitters for her patterns, following the 2006 publication of her book Knitting Nature: 39 Designs Inspired by Patterns in Nature, she became internationally known. Norah’s newest book, published in late 2016, is Knitted Cable Sourcebook: A Breakthrough Guide to Knitting with Cables and Designing Your Own.
