Garmology: We met knitters in run-down pubs – With Genevieve Sweeney, knitwear (#97 S04/E23)

This week Genevieve Sweeney stops by to chat about the easy path of starting her knitwear brand. Or rather, how wanting to start making knitwear led her on a tour of discovery of discarded and obsolete machinery, meeting contacts in run-down pubs, locating expert knitters that had been put out to pasture, her husband becoming a trojan horse to get a foot inside the factory doors and be taken seriously. Oh, and how satisfying it is to succeed!

You can find Genevieve Sweeney Knitwear on the web here and on Instagram as @genevievesweeney
