Meet the Staff

Dawn - Dawn is a knitter who helps out at our events and in our shop. She once knitted a huge number of Big Wool hats to raise money for her daughter's trip to Nepal and has recently completed a beautiful cardigan in Felted Tweed.

Emma - Emma works in our Edinburgh shop and office, and crochets beautiful blankets and animals. She loves when cute dogs visit the shop and has recently been building up her knitting skills through making an Arabella Cowl.

Heather -  Our resident Rowan Design Consultant, Heather has been knitting since she was 8 years old, and is still completely obsessed with it. She starts more projects than she finishes and her favourite colours will always be the brightest ones on the shelf. Heather works in our Edinburgh shop, offering one-to-one knitting and crochet tuition, and can also be found on Twitter: @KnitWithHeather.

Helen - Helen enjoys working with numbers but is a novice at knitting. She has progressed from scarves to baby garments, and has recently enjoyed working with Baby Crofter DK.

Lucy - A crocheter in our Edinburgh shop.  A big fan of the Brittany Crochet Hooks, she learned to crochet using Crochet Unravelled.

Sarah - A fan of all things crafty, Sarah loves to master new techniques.  She can usually be found in our Edinburgh branch updating something internet-y or solving knitting problems.

Susan H - Susan started knitting a long time ago when she was a little girl.  She was taught to knit by her mother and started off knitting scarves for dolls. She then progressed to scarves for herself. Then when she had children, she knitted baby clothes but as they got older, she had to stop, as they wouldn't wear handknitted garments any more as they weren't "cool".  Since she started working at McAree Brothers, her knitting passion has flourished.  She loves knitting most things but hates sewing the garments together!  She loves the Rowan Kidsilk Haze - it's so soft and makes beautiful scarves.
