Jean Cockburn has been knitting socks for many years. In 2011 she attended the Sock Summit conference in Portland, Oregon, where the motto was “Taking Sock Knitting Almost Too Far”. Jean Cockburn is an experienced embroiderer who has shown her work in art shows at the Denman Summer Gallery and the Vancouver Island Surface Design Association. She is a member of the Denman Craft Shop and her work can be seen there any day of the week. Jean draws, paints, quilts, knits, crochets, sews her own clothes, and does all manner of hand-stitching. And a little gardening when time allows.
