Many congratulations to 2021 Watermill knitting tutor Norah Gaughan, who has just been appointed editor-in-chief of Vogue Knitting, the premier knitting publication in America.

As Art Joinnides, President of the company which publishes Vogue Knitting, says: “Norah needs no introduction—she is the best of the best. An editor, merchandiser, and designer, she has a passion for and true understanding of today’s knitter.”

For our part, the Watermill team is looking forward very much to welcoming Norah here for her course next Spring. It is called Knitting and La Bella Vita and will run from Saturday 24 April to Saturday 1 May 2021.

Norah Gaughan is an independent knitting designer working out of her studio in historic Harrisville, New Hampshire, USA. She has spent her life immersed in knitting, including stints as design director at JCA and Berroco.

She says: “I’m inspired by nature and science, while at the same time keeping an eye what’s happening in the fashion world. My teaching style is rather relaxed. After I’ve explained the basics, students dig in and start knitting. I’ll give pertinent information as we go along, and questions will spur on more advice. My goal is to have the class be fun and interesting.”  

Norah will bring two special projects for guests to knit with her during her week, based on her new book, Twisted Stitches, which will be out in 2021. You can find out more about her at norahgaughan.com.
