Welcome to the Fingerlakes and Silver Needles Machine Knitting Club.
We had a great seminar this year! Charlene Schafer, Michael Becker, and Diana Sullivan joined us for 2 exciting days of learning. We feel our demonstrators for the 2014 seminar inspired us with all their knowledge and expertise.
Diana Sullivan blogged about the seminar
"Last weekend I taught at the Fingerlakes Machine Knitting Seminar in Cortland, New York. They hold a big seminar at a nice hotel and a good-sized crowd of knitters attend. I believe everyone, from beginners to wizards, felt welcome and had a good time. Charlene Shafer, Michael Becker, and I taught, plus they had a study group working through Cheryl Jiles' videos. I keep telling ya, if you haven't attended a machine knitting seminar you are missing something wonderful!"
The dates for the 2015 Seminar will be September 25th and 26th.
More information about the seminar will be posted on the seminar pages in the coming months.
