Beth Brown-Reinsel


Designer Beth Brown-Reinsel is the artist behind Knitting Traditions. “I have been traveling to teach and to research historic garments in museums for more than 30 years,” Beth says. “My focus is 19th-century Northern European knitting traditions, because that is around the time that the sweater (as we know it today) emerged in several cultures. I think it is important that we as fiber artists acknowledge and honor what has gone before, for all our work stands upon the work of someone else in the past.”
