About the Author

About Catherine Arnfield

Catherine has been interested in crafts from an early age, and attended Manchester Metropolitan University to study Textile Design (BA Hons) from 1994 to 1997. In 2003 she became a qualified teacher of Art and Design and followed this career path until leaving the profession in 2017. Teaching gave her the opportunity to learn many new skills, including felting, and it wasn't long before she began experimenting with combining her love of knitting with her new-found passion felting.

In December 2016, her company Knit2Felt was conceived and by May 2017 she had acquired enough interest in her designs through social media, small workshops and craft fairs to make the massive decision to leave teaching and pursue her dream of a career in crafts.

Since then, Catherine has featured in several magazines, including Knit NowLet’s KnitThe KnitterSimply Knitting and Mollie Makes. Catherine also runs workshops in the north of England, and has exhibited at numerous shows such as Nottingham Yarn Expo, Etsy Made Local Manchester, Woolfest, British Wool Show and Yarndale.

Catherine lives in High Peak, Derbyshire in the UK with her partner and two daughters.
