26 October 2020 • Using Your Knitting Machine’s Ribber Attachment

What a great class! The introduction to Machine Knitting gave me the confidence to have a go with my knitting machine. I wasn't sure I was ready for the next class on the ribber attachment but Lorena was so patient and explained in a way that was easy to understand and now I am set up. I know what to do when I have mastered the basics and want to add ribbing to my repertoire. Face to face is great and some things I was confused about may have been addressed faster and more easily but again Lorena took the time to make sure I knew what I was doing. and I really appreciated being able to set the machine up in my loungeroom, with all the boxes open and I could just rummage around to find what I needed. I was so pleased to see what the other student had made after the introduction class. Lorena is a terrific teacher and Jenni was a supportive side kick. We had fun! I hope there's more!

I have completed the knitting machine learners class and it was excellent. I had absolutely no experience with a knitting machine and this course was exactly what I needed. The class (online) was small which meant the teacher had time to help every student and make sure every student was keeping up before moving on. The teacher was very patient and clearly very experienced. It was informative and covered all the essentials. This course is a must for anyone wanting to learn to use a knitting machine. I can’t wait to attend the next one! The IT set up was great also, with no glitches.
