Bristol, UK Review by Elena
I bought my SK830 a month ago and I am very happy with the purchase. The delivery was fast, the machine was very well packed as well. The machine is great, I am still learning as this is my first knitting machine. I find It very easy to operate and I am intending to buy all the extra attachments for the machine from the same company. (Posted on September 9, 2016)
