Barbara G. Walker Hand-Knitted Items Auction

Here is a rare opportunity to own a piece of knitting history. Barbara G. Walker is auctioning scores of her original garments and a few accessories: sweaters, sweater/skirt sets, pants suits, table cloths, bags, tabards and shawls; each item is hand-knitted entirely by Barbara. It is thrilling to see the actual garments that were photographed in many of the first editions of her books and to recognize so many of BGW’s original stitch-pattern designs in various sweaters and skirts. All of the items exemplify Barbara Walker’s fastidious knitting and imaginative eye for technical detail. Items are tagged with their names and Barbara G. Walker’s signature.

Schoolhouse Press will run three consecutive auctions during October and November, each with approximately 25 items and lasting ten days. Bidding is proxy style similar to auctions held on other auction sites. Payment is through Paypal.
