Pretty in Purlesque

Purlesque is a home of craft, knitting and handmade! Setup by Susan and Jane in 2006, their shop is based inside POP Boutique on Whitechapel, but Purlesque will also pop-up at the Winter Arts Market again this year, and we’re delighted to have them on board!

With a passion for knitting, crochet and textiles and a love of all things vintage, Susan and Jane make unique hand-crafted items for the individual and for the home.

Felt Hemmed In…

Indianna Mcmillan-Parker makes a range of crafts all lovingly knitted and stitched in Liverpool. Among the many things she will be selling are beautifully hand knitted beanie hats and socks for babies and adults, cosy felted knitwear baby shoes, fun potted cacti pincushions and charming felt christmas robin decorations!

Indianna says ”  loved the cheery, childlike quality of felt and began making simple pincushions as and when I could. I started selling my cacti pin cushions, ‘Sew your own’ about 3 years ago at Craft Markets in the Liverpool area, along with my mother’s hand knitted items.”

“More recently I have been experimenting with reclaimed felted knit wear. From jumpers and other garments I have started to make baby slippers.”
