Schindermania!

More London!
'I was blown away by the work of Amy Twigger Holroyd (let's not even talk about how I felt about her name, except to say it started with paroxysms and ended with joy), of Keep and Share. Amy's invented her own way of working with knits that she calls stitch hacking.'

The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge - Knitting & Stitching Show 2010
'As you know, this is a stitchy blog, so I'm just going to make quick reference to a couple of knitters and we can move on. First up is Amy Twigger Holroyd from Keep & Share, who is a stitch hacking genius. I was so impressed with her work and her whole ethos that I even bought a crochet kit from her (gasp!).'

All About You

Ten best knitting kits
'Keep and Share is a cool ethical British knitwear design company which sells its own collection of handmade knits. For those of us who like to knit our own clothes, it also sells top-notch knitting kits - the beautifully designed classic 'Alice' cardigan; a knitted cape kit; and learn to crochet or knit kits which take total beginners through the basics. Highly recommended.'

Recycle, Keep, and Grow: Sustainable Textile Design in Britain
Jessica Hemmings
'Three British designers embody these three very different approaches to the sustainable design dilemma... In spite of their differences, this sense of pragmatism, combined with remarkable ambition, is a vision shared by Renshaw, Holroyd, and Lee - three extraordinary designers.'
