Julia Wilkens Design

Am Samstag während des Minimarktes

Julia hails from the Frankfurt/Main region of Germany, but has lived in Amsterdam for over 20 years. She originally moved to the city to live with her best friend, now her husband. 

Having worked for many years in the contemporary art world, Julia made the switch to the contemporary yarn world in 2017.

Julia has always altered patterns to better flatter herself and her tastes and in 2019 took the leap into publishing her own designs. Colourwork yoke sweaters are a particular favourite for Julia, and she takes her inspiration from fine art and from nature.

Yedra Design

Am Samstag während des Minimarktes

Meet Soraya: ''Although I am from Madrid, I live in Amsterdam. Since 2018 I’ve been directing the independent publishing project Yedraknits and designing knitting patterns. I like to play around with exciting constructions and always give my patterns a script twist. The knitters say they are fun and learn a lot from them.

I am passionate about knitting and teaching everything I learn about knitting.

Maaike van Geijn

Achtung - Änderung - stat Samstag, jetzt am Freitag während des Minimarktes.

Am Samstag erst ab 14 Uhr kannst du Maaike Hallo sagen.

Maaike van Geijn was born in the Netherlands and grew up between the US and Haarlem. She now lives with her family in Schoorl, a small town by the sea, dunes and woods. Maaike studied theatre costumes and did her master's degree in Theatre Studies. She opted for a career as a curator in the theatre and enjoyed doing that work for many years. 

When Maaike was pregnant with her daughter, she picked up her knitting needles again and hasn't stopped since. In her designs Maaike looks for elegance but also likes her work to be playful, either in shape or colour. Her starting point is always the yarn: it’s structure, colour and composition. Above all, Maaike wants her designs to be a pleasant knitting experience, so that knitters can really enjoy the process.

Maaike’s work has been published by Laine, La Bien Aimée & Kate Davies and in the future will be published by John Arbon, Erika Knight yarns, Laine and PRU yarns.
