My name is Maggi Bloice and I have been collecting knitting machines and associated stuff for over 25 years, and now I have achieved my long held ambition of putting together what I hope you will find is an interesting eclectic collection - since my move to Brittany from Perthshire in Scotland in 2003, I have spent many happy hours restoring, operating, cataloguing and photographing each machine, it is a definite labour of love and I still continue my search for interesting and quirky knitting machines, books and gadgets. The descriptions are my personal notes and thoughts about each machine.
I welcome any interaction about knitting machines. Many of the questions asked are answered from within the forum so why not take a look. For even further information, my ongoing blog, the Knitting Shed Diary is updated regularly and outlines my work in progress and my experiences with different machines, techniques and accessories - it is long but you can scroll down to the bottom for the most recent stuff, or scroll to the bold heading of the subject that interests you. If you have any vintage knitting machines that are interesting and you would like to donate them to the museum, please do not hesitate to contact me.
