Looking for Unwanted, Unloved Knitting Machines

Posted on

I LOVE machine knitting and want to be able to pass on the craft to others SO I am looking for all those unwanted & unloved machines hiding under beds or in lofts. I promise to give them a new life and get lots of people machine knitting. Personally, I own a Brother 940, with its ribber, garter carriage and motor drive. I use Designer Knit to create designs and stitch patterns. If I can only get one other machine it will be a start as it is so much easier to learn if one can copy the teacher’s movements.

I look forward to hearing from you

Sometimes you can get knitting machines on ebay or in charity shops. My friend got one for £2.50 reduced from £5! You could be lucky. Also try the recycle site – they have them as well but beware they could be in a bit of a mess.
Best wishes.

It could be that anyone not using their machine will not receive the magazine. I wonder therefore have you tried Freecycle? This is an internet site which was set up to give away/request items which are no longer used in order to recycle items instead of them going to landfill. Each area has it’s own site and you can join as many as you like – but beware the more you join the more wanted/received posts you will receive daily.
On my local site a member offered a knitting machine which I did not need but I did contact them to see if they had a knitting machine table spare and I was lucky.
