AIM Member Showcase ~ Helena Bleeker

Introducing Helena Bleeker, a master at miniature knitting. In the above photo, Helena shares with us "Bella" and a lovely teddy bear made and dressed by a dear friend of hers in Belgium.

The "Connie" and “Bella” pattern above was knitted using the new Bio certified cotton from Venne Holland. Helena tells us that the thickness of the cotton is Nm 50/2 which places it exactly between the 34/2 and 70/2. This new thread knits up beautifully and shows the pattern in great detail. Helena stocks the full colour range available at the moment and the colour chart is now shown on her web site, which also shows the full range of Miniature Knitting patterns in 1/12 and 1/24 scale plus miniature knitting needles and threads. All the threads can be used for crochet and lace making as well, so why not pay Helena a visit at her website;
