Claire Montgomerie is a textiles designer specialising in knitting and crochet, constructing fabrics, garments, creatures and accessories which are fun, quirky and modern. Her main aim is always to reinvent the products of ancient and traditional needle craft processes while retaining all their intricacies and comforting charm.
Claire likes to keep her hands busy and so is constantly working on many different projects. She has made puppets for music videos, contributes patterns and articles to craft magazines and books, and writes, edits and consults on craft books. As well as this, she teaches textiles at many different levels and styles and contributes to Inside Crochet magazine.
