Welcome to the Fingerlakes and Silver Needles Machine Knitting Club.
We had a great seminar last 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 Silver Needles Club meets monthly as a group and knits, usually a chosen project for that month, presented by a club member.
Once a year, we have a Seminar sponsored by the Fingerlakes Machine Knitting Club for 2 days with 4 or 5 well known demonstrators of the latest in knitting machine techniques and patterns. The dates of the seminar for 2014 are Sept 26-27th.
Once a year we have a three-day Retreat for knitting and just plain fun in a beautiful spot on Owasco Lake. The dates of the retreat for 2015 are Oct 30 thru Nov 1.
