Machine Knitters Guild

Burlington, On


Our next meeting is Tuesday, August 1st, beginning at 7:00 pm. Chris will demonstrate the basics of preparing raw wool fibre for spinning, show a variety of spinning wheels, and how these yarns knit up on a variety of knitting machines. She will also discuss the creation and construction of a machine knit throw with a large image in two panels.

Check the Program page for information on our September special meeting and our Medium Project Challenge which is now due at our October 3rd meeting. Remember our 2017 Theme is Finishing so they will be shown inside-out at the start of the evening.
