James McIntosh was a man full of energy and life. Travelling the world as the Global Ambassador for AGA cookers and a presenter on China Food TV.
That was until the age of 35 when he was suddenly struck with a severe depressive episode. James could not leave his bedroom for a year. Fear, panic and a darkness consumed him, not least to mention a catatonic physical state, he was a shadow of himself. During this time, James taught himself to knit.
Slowly one stitch at a time James was able to regain his health and together with his partner Dr Thomas Ernst – a Senior Consultant Physician they researched knitting and wellness.
Come along and hear James tell his story of overcoming adversity, the highs and lows, love and laughter as he talks about the story behind his world award winning book Knit and Nibble and how he knit himself back together one stitch at a time.
James will be holding a book signing at the end of the event.
