'CLOTHES THAT LOVE TO BE WORN AND ADMIRED...'
My garments are very precisely craft knitted on my domestic knitting machine in my studio/workshop in Camden Lock, London.
I am proud to create designs that are long lasting, high quality, with minimal wastage, and much to delight the eye.
I knit my special bespoke 'one-off' pieces, including my 'ArtKnit' dresses and my 'ArtKnit' cushions, in my studio in Hackney.
As a designer/artist/maker of many years standing, I have been selected to be on the Crafts Council Makers Directory
During these difficult times, I am now making my garments as they are ordered.
If anything you want is not in stock, please put in a 'Notify when Available' request, and I will endeavor to get it made for you.
This involves a lot less waste and is more environmentally friendly!
At the moment, as I am now working on my own, I will only be open for 3 days a week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
If you want to visit me on a day when I am closed though, please do
email me to arrange an appointment.
The good news is that I have most of my work online
Customer feedback is essential to me as a designer running my micro-business. Your support encourages me to keep going...
So thank you all for appreciating what I do!

"I BOUGHT MY FIRST PENNY BURDETT SWEATER AROUND 17 YEARS AGO, AND IT BECAME A FIRM FAVOURITE.
TIMELESS, CREATIVE , QUIRKY, AND EXCEPTIONALLY FLATTERING!
I NOW HAPPILY HAVE A BRAND SPANKING NEW ONE.
IT IS A TESTAMENT TO PENNY'S DESIGN THAT THE STYLE HAS NOT DATED AT ALL. AND THE QUALITY IS IMPECCABLE.
I WON'T WAIT ANOTHER 17 YEARS FOR THE NEXT ONE!"

"PENNY BURDETT KNITWEAR EXPERT, THE MOST AMAZING KNITWEAR DESIGNER I HAVE EVER SEEN. SHE CREATES ALL HER OWN KNITTING PATTERNS ON SITE AND MAKES THE GARMENTS IN HER SHOP/STUDIO IN CAMDEN LOCK. SO REFRESHING THAT THIS CRAFT STILL EXISTS. SO UNIQUE AND THE QUALITY IS SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING I HAVE SEEN IN LIBERTY."
Odette / Ireland
"...YOUR WORK IS SO INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL AND SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR MORE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO SEE AND OWN, BUT ALSO I THINK YOU DERIVE INSPIRATION FROM ALL OF THE HUMAN CONNECTION YOU HAVE IN YOUR STORE – SEEMS LIKE IT’S NOT JUST A BUSINESS FOR YOU – IT’S NOT “WHAT YOU DO” – IT’S “WHO YOU ARE” AND AN EXPRESSION OF YOUR LIFE SPIRIT."

"Over 25 years ago I bought this beautiful jumper in Camden Market. At the time I think it was the most expensive jumper I'd ever bought and that made it special. Since then it has been worn on so very many occasions becoming an absolute classic staple of my wardrobe - dress up, dress down, winter and summer. Finally, last week I had to accept it was past its best. Because I just loved it so very much, I took time to find you on the internet and replace it. I was so thrilled to find a very similar design - which arrived this morning. I will wear it with delight, and I am sure, for many years to come."
