Here you will find the home of the Silver Needles Machine Knitting Club and info on our annual machine knitting seminar.
The Silver Needles Club meets monthly as a group and machine knits, usually a chosen project or technique for that month, presented by a club member.
We sponsor the Finger Lakes Machine Knitting Seminar for 2 days with well known demonstrators of the latest in techniques and patterns.
We also host a three-day Retreat for knitting and just plain fun in a beautiful spot on Casowasco Lake .
The dates of the retreat for 2016 are Oct 28 thru Oct 30.
What a great seminar ! Our presenters were: Diana Berns, Eileen Montgomery, Cindy Schmatz, Carol Scott and Carole Wurst. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge, expertise and humor with us!
Diana Sullivan blogged about the 2014 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!"
