WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS
Sincerely Louise has been selected to trade at fairs and events across the UK, including the first Etsy Made Local in London, the Etsy x John Lewis Rooftop event at the Oxford Street store and the Clothes Show Live. I've also exhibited my pieces at Somerset House at a Boden press launch and at Tent London in the Truman Brewery with Etsy.
I've run my own knitting themed pub quiz at The Knitting and Stitching Show, presented talks for Hobbycraft, The Knitting and Crochet Guild and have been in panel talks with Kirstie Allsopp at the Handmade Fair. Occasionally I've popped up on HOCHANDA TV and at the hight of my fame was featured on ITV's The Alan Titchmarsh Show.
From hosting my own knit nights in London and Sheffield to running guest workshops for the likes of Unravel, a festival of knitting, Toft and Bust Craftacular, I love teaching newbies how to knit or getting crafty with experienced knitters. Here are some of my favourite workshop I've worked on. If you'd like to get in touch about a future workshop drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I was invited to run a workshop at the V&A, designing two pieces that were inspired by their collection.
