I really loved the photostory of the farm in the newest Twist Collective, everything from the setting to the model to the photography itself. I only just recently realized, however, that it was shot at Roxham Farm, which I visited last year and featured in my first article for Spin Off this past spring. This issue contains the first pattern from Twist I plan to knit (though I feel a slight sense of obligation to knit one from the photostory I was in last year; maybe later).

Another photostory also (quite by accident I’m told) caught the Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles, another subject for my same article, in the background. MCCT seems to be the sole remnant of a textiles industry in the area that long ago moved largely overseas. This sign in the same neighbourhood persists:

Much more beautiful photography can be seen at the magazine itself.
