About

About the shop

Heike Gittins is a Designer Maker and Workshop Tutor based in Ruthin, North Wales. Since her childhood in Germany she has had a keen love for all things textile, being taught at 8 years old to knit and crochet by her two grandmothers.

Heike uses her love and talent to design and create beautiful items to wear or use in the home, and teaches a variety of topics and techniques all over the UK and Europe.
As the author of “The little book of Socks” and “The little book of Shawls” and co-organiser of the ‘WoolyLoops’ Knitting Retreats, Heike leads a creatively happy life surrounded by mountains and open spaces in Wales.

Originally from Germany, Heike moved to the UK in 1987, and, after many years working as a Marketing/PR Executive in the IT business, decided that a change was needed. Five years as a Rowan Design Consultant followed. Now, as a Freelance Designer and workshop tutor Heike travels extensively, teaching her large variety of workshops to an ever-increasing audience of yarn lovers.

When not teaching, Heike can be found in her studio overlooking the Welsh Mountains or traveling in search for new design ideas.

Heike’s designs can be found on her website at www.madewithloops.co.uk, in Knitting Magazines, on www.ravelry.com and on the Rowan website.
