While working with GlobalYell in the textile residency program, I continue to wear the hat of Highland Natural Accents (“HNA”). In January, Joan Fraser (of Fraser Knitwear) and I caught up with each other at Scotland’s Trade Fair in Glasgow. I had hoped to spend more time with Joan discussing what variety of patterns and colours of her beautiful knitwear she offers but ended up being quite busy helping out We Frame It with their stand at the Fair.
Recently, Joan and I met up in Lerwick. Joan was kind enough to spend time with me to work on HNA’s next order with Fraser Knitwear. In addition, Joan helped me become more familiar with the textile makers who are established throughout the islands of Shetland. Highland Natural Accents is excited about the prospect of expanding the regions it covers and HNA Associated Makers.
