MACHINE KNITTING INSTRUCTION

Do you have a knitting machine still in the box or gathering dust?  Let us help you get started!  We can help assemble your machine, get started with the basics, or work through projects to add to your arsenal of skills.  And if you don't have a machine, but want to investigate the art of machine knitting, we have plenty of machines you can learn on. 

We offer custom one-to-one instruction as well as classes for groups and teach all ages 10 and up. Learning to machine knit is a great way to productively spend summer vacation from school for kids who love to create! We are located in beautiful Fort Collins, CO and will provide machine knitting instruction to students in Northern Colorado, Boulder, and Denver.

Prices vary depending on your needs, but we generally charge $20/hr for one-to-one instruction.
