Advices on Knitting Machines and Courses

I am a complete novice and am looking for some advice on knitting mahcines because I would like to buy one and do not know where to start.

Do you know any machine knitting courses in London or near by?
Is there someone out there who can help me?

Dear Chris10

The Guild of Machine Knitters is a good place to start for information on clubs and courses in the London area –

The following website has lots of good links to information about machine knitting and machines –

Machine Knitting Monthly has organised an Exhibition at Bournemouth next weekend on Saturday 6 March – see the home page for details. I’ve attended the Croydon show in July over the last two years and there are a variety of exhibitors with a wealth of knowledge who would be able to advise you on what to buy as well as lots of lovely yarn and a fashion show of garments made on domestic machines. It’s a great day out.

Hope this is of help.

Best wishes
