Val Pierce's passion for knitting began at an early age when her father taught her the craft of knitting when she five years old. From that day forth, Val has been hooked. Val developed her skills over the years and her designs now feature in a selection of national magazines in the UK as well as numerous books. Her inspiration comes from the environment around her, using different colours and textures within her knitted and crocheted patterns.
