Free Fashion Machine Knitting Demonstration with Atelier Conquet
We have something so cool to tell you about today! We are delighted to partner with Judella Conquet of Atelier Conquet to host a special fashion machine knitting demonstration in our West Hampstead shop on Sunday, 30 September, 11am - 1pm. In this free session you will learn how knitted samples are designed and produced using a domestic knitting machine. You'll get a chance to try the machine yourself and make a sample to keep!
During the session, Judella will demonstrate how to use the punch card mechanism to make a range of stitches including the tuck stitch, slip stitch, fair isle, weaving and lace. She'll also show you how to incorporate hand manipulation techniques to make cables, holes, loops, ladders and more! Plus she'll talk about how you can combine machine knitting with decorative handcrafts such as cross stitch, beading, screen printing, embroidery and applique.
