Cancelled for 2020. Watch our site for 2021 updates. Can’t wait to be together again.

Charlene Shafer from the Knit Knack Shop will be joining us as both demonstrator and vendor bringing her teaching expertise on DAK and the LK150 as well as new Tamm yarns and tools, parts, books and all the shopping goodies we look for at seminar.

Carol Scott comes to us from Chicago with decades of fashion design knowledge and experience.  Her imaginative approach to stitch patterns opens our eyes to possibilities we had not thought of.  

Susan Adams unique style of teaching empowers the knitter with more in-depth understanding of their machines and design possibilities.  

Wendy Taber is joining us with our FIRST EVER Circular Sock Knitting classes.  Her self-taught/ hard won familiarity with the CSM makes her a fantastic instructor and engaging mentor for anyone interested in learning about these amazing and efficient machines.  Whether you have one already or not they are fascinating to watch working and Wendy makes them just hum along.

IMPORTANT NOTE Out of respect for our demonstrators and vendors no outside selling will be allowed at the Finger Lakes seminar. Our members will have a sale list in our seminar book, a perk of being a member. If you find something they have for sale, that you’re interested in, contact that club member with the contact information they provided. By registering for the Finger Lakes knitting machine seminar you agree not to sell anything at the seminar. Anyone found to be selling, outside of the demonstrators or vendors, will be asked to leave with no refund of the seminar.
