(Sonia Delaunay swimsuits, 1928)

The winner
Comments on Jean’s interview have now been closed, and we have a randomly selected winner in the giveaway to receive a copy of Sweet Shawlettes. Gabriela (whose favourite garden flower is the peony) it is YOU! Congratulations! I have sent you an email so that you can let me know your contact details.

The request.
Susan Crawford, author of the wonderful Stitch in Time volumes, and contributor to issue 2 of Textisles, is doing some more research on knitted swimsuits. If you have – or have worn, or have a picture of a family member wearing – a knitted swimsuit, she would really like to hear from you. Please get in touch with Susan directly – you’ll find her contact details at the foot of this post.

  1. What a treat to see the Sonia Delaunay swimsuit sketch. I was lucky enough to see a wonderful exhibition of her textile designs last year in NYC … my mind was sparking like mad — her work is truly inspirational.
