Originally from the middle of nowhere in the South West of England, Another Knitted Thing owner and director Victoria Salmon moved to the Northern City of Manchester to study at the Manchester School of Art.

Working late into the damp nights in her back-street studio space, she then worked for TV, film and theatre on commissions big and small. Alongside working for names such as Netflix, the BBC and Mackinnon and Saunders she ran and managed her own knitted thing which saw commissions, cushions, scarfs and knit kits sold through Etsy and craft fairs until 2018.

During this time she also lectured for fashion and knit at Manchester School of Art and Bradford College.

Heading back to education, she moved to the middle of nowhere in Sweden to study her Masters in Fine Arts. A specialism within knitted textiles, Victoria creates intricate textile forms on both domestic and industrial machines.

With purposes for sound absorption, lighting design, or purely to textiles play and to interact with, her knits focus around strong visuals, intricate surface textures and folding techniques to create self-supporting and self-folding forms.

She was then employed at The Swedish School of Textiles as a knit teaching technician working with BA, MA, PhD Researchers and external clients on hand driven machines and programming and knitting on Stoll (Stoll M1+ programming) and Shima Seiki (APEX programming).

Victoria has now returned to Manchester to set up Another Knitted Thing as a full time knit studio working with her world leading APEX programming and Shima Seiki knitting machine for independent artists and designers regional and national.

Outside of developing technical knits for clients and her own research, Victoria takes private lessons on hand run knitting machines, develops knit techniques and patterns and develops content of technical knitting sheets for Patreon and Youtube.

She is also an associate lecturer at The Manchester School of Art and other North West Universities.
