John Smedley Yarnstorm: sneak peek Day One
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on October 5, 2010
The big event takes place on October 11 but here’s a little sneak peek to keep you in the woolly loop.
Sneak peek one is from The Fastener who wanders through the Victorian era with her wool.
In the 1820s John Smedley installed the first knitting frames in a factory environment to knit underwear.
The company prospered in the Victorian era, in the heartland of the industrial revolution. It was one of the first factories,as they are known today and this era sees major further developments from Water wheel to electricity.
