Welcome graphic

Our Machine Knitting Club is found in the Foothills, Yuma, Arizona.

We meet the First and Third Thursdays of the winter months, usually from November to April.

We are mostly Snowbirds so we "Fly" away for the summer months and "Flock" together for the winter.

We have a variety of knitting machines and embrace them all and love to talk about other hobbies as time allows as well.

This website will be constantly developed with the aim to inform our members and friends and encourage machine knitting. Helpful hints and demos from our meetings will be posted here for all to look at and print out as desired. When web space is getting full, the oldest information will be deleted first, so, be sure to print or save to file any info you want to keep.

This information is posted here for all to enjoy and use freely but if you do post it to another site, please give credit to where you found the info. You may link to this site as you desire.

We intend to post many links to our favorite knitting sites as well so check out our links section coming soon.

There are several pages on this website showing chemo caps, kerchiefs and beanies.  These are all very appropriate for those undergoing chemo(I speak from personal experience), but are also great ways to practice techniques and they are also just as useful for the general population...teenagers adore them and winter makes them useful for anyone anywhere.  Please take a look at them and maybe make some quick and easy for donation.  Remember, there is always a head that will fit any size!!!!!
