Intro to machine knitting

Page history last edited by bluealvarez 10 years, 11 months ago

NOTE: I  am so sorry, apparently this was not meant to be.  I am no longer able to attend Fiber Camp on Saturday.  Please contact me at bluealvarez@bluealvarez.com if you would like a private half-hour tutorial on the knitting machine, free of charge.  Thank you for your understanding!

 

This class will show you the basic operation of a single-bed standard gauge knitting machine.  The machine is manual, no electronic programming required.  Come practice using a machine and get a feel for the possibilities available to you for both design creativity and time saving when you have a machine as part of your arsenal.

 

Basic knowledge of knit fabric structure (knit vs. purl, how loops form, etc.) is helpful but not required.

 

No materials required to attend this workshop.

I am interested. I've been thinking about getting one of the inexpensive ones from JoAnn's or AC Moore or Michael's - the Ultimate Sweater Machine, but I'm just not sure. I'd love to learn about using any knitting machine.

I'm giving this until 1/4 for feedback. If there is not a minimum of three comments showing interest by end of day on Monday, I'll assume this workshop is not happening due to lack of interest. Thanks!

I've been thinking of trying machine knitting. It would be great to see what it's like.

Just to reiterate in case anyone doesn't read the changed text above:
