Janelle Martin has been knitting for more than 30 years and is excited to share her passion through her designs and as a knitting instructor. Her ongoing fascination is with Japanese Stitch Patterns and architectural detailing. Her hand knitwear designs possess an organic feel with stitch patterns flowing one into the next.
Janelle was awarded the 2011-2012 Sally Melville Award (KW Knitters’ Guild), awarded (by members’ votes) to “the knitter who has most inspired its members.” She received the Amy Hallman Snyder Textile, Fibre and Quilting Arts Award at the 26th Annual Arts Awards Waterloo Region. Janelle rarely goes anywhere without a book and her knitting.
