Sheila Pearson.JPGMy interest in nnotting began when I accompanied my husband, David, to the AGM at Warrington in 1991. I had previously only seen his practical knots, and I was wowed by the range of fancy knots, particularly flat knots.

I met Brian Field there, who sold me a copy of his Sailors Breastplates, encouraged me for years and became my knotting mentor. I like making braids and ropes, often incorporating them in jewellery.
