Machine Knitting is Alive and Well
Last weekend I traveled to Peru Indiana to teach at the Knit Knack Shop’s Spring Fling. It was great fun to be with machine knitters and see the enthusiasm they have for creating knitwear on a home knitting machine.
Charlene Shafer coordinates the seminar each spring, and this year instructors included Susan Guagliumi, Carol Forbes,Tricia Shafer, Rhaelene Wimberly, and myself.
I taught various classes including:
From Stitch Painter to your Knitting Machine
Garment Designer: A Versatile Tool for Design
Garment Designer: Learning a Little More
Combining Fabric and Knits
Simple Shapes, Creative Knits
Twenty Pattern Guidelines
It’s a Knock-Off World
What’s Hot in European Knitwear
It was great to reconnect with Susan Guagliumi, long-time friend and associate. Below you see pictures of Charlene (right) and Rhaelene (left), plus Tricia (right) and myself (left) Photos were taken by Susan Guagliumi
