West Yorkshire Review by Carole Ann Cooper
The SK840 knitting machine brings a new dimension to machine knitting with the software added (bought separate) it opens a new world. No longer just a matter of pushing a carriage back and forth. Anyone who likes knitting will love this machine (Posted on January 14, 2017)
Utrecht Review by Darina Kalinova
I need to confess that sewing and knitting is my hobby for last almost 30 years. Knitting machine I got myself as Christmas present and I have started to learn to use it. I am impressed how logically the machine works. Both manuals are very much helpful to learn and understand and and DVD helped. I knew prior this purchase that it is not my last shopping, now I know for sure that I am going to buy the chunky knitting machine and the ribber too, plus other equipment. I am very happy for to have ma knitting machine at home.
Thank you all
