'CLOTHES THAT LOVE TO BE WORN AND ADMIRED...'
I am excited to tell you I have moved to a new location in Camden Lock at
Unit 7, The East Yard, Camden Lock, Camden , London NW1 8AF
It is a brilliant studio space with lots of room for designing and making, with natural light and easy access from Chalk Farm Road.
Amazingly I started my business trading at Camden Lock from a stall in this very yard in November 1986, 35 years ago, when there were railings onto Chalk Farm Road and the Old Black shed (now DingWalls) was full of vintage clothing, jewellery, old furniture, pictures, old pottery, vinyl albums and lots of interesting junk to browse through!
From that small beginning, I now sell my work worldwide, to my lovely customers who appreciate the 'one-off' and hand made quality of my work.
The good news is that I have most of my work online

I knit my special '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
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!
"YOUR KNITWEAR IS SPECTACULAR, ALL OF IT, AND THE ONE THAT HAS MADE ITS WAY TO MY LITTLE HOME FITS ME LIKE A GLOVE. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR MARVELLOUS PRODUCTS, THEY ARE ITEMS OF BEAUTY AND INSPIRATION!"

"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."
