Today we welcome Briggs and Little to the blog to share some thoughts on Twist Collective's 10th Anniversary!
Briggs & Little Woolen Mills Ltds experience with Twist Collective could not be any more positive if we had scripted it ourselves. The SYLVI, designed by Mari Muinonen and created with Briggs & Little Atlantic Red was featured in the 2008 Winter edition, which was only the second issue of the magazine.
This gave Briggs & Little international exposure like we had never had before. Located on Route 635 in Harvey, New Brunswick, Canada, Briggs & Little almost missed that opportunity due to the long delivery time to Finland by Canada Post. In a desperate move to get the yarn to Mari in Finland we had to ship from the USA and as they say “The Rest Is History”. We understand that even today after 10 years the Sylvi is still the number one selling design from their site.
We immediately formed a strong relationship with Kate and her mum Cynthia and to this day truly appreciate the opportunities they have afforded us in presenting our yarns to the world stage. There have been many amazing designs using Briggs & Little yarns since the Sylvi and for this we owe a huge debt of gratitude to these two ladies and their world class group of designers that make Twist Collective the “Class Act” that it is today.
Thank you for sharing “us” to the world. Briggs and Little Woolen Mills Ltd are for sure the most dedicated and appreciative fans of “Twist Collective”.
