A knitting historian, teacher and designer as well as a television star on his own BBC knitting show, he was Chief Designer for Patons and one of the foremost authorities on the history of knitting.

Reviews

[In the late 1960s] there was a chap called James Norbury, who had his own knitting show on the BBC. I sat in on some of the programmes, and good stuff it was, too. I learned lots of racy stuff about 'knit one, purl one' * Sir David Attenborough * Knitting is the saving of a life * Virginia Woolf * The strongest single influence in British knitting -- Richard Rutt, author of 'A History of Hand Knitting'
