Spring City Knitters, Video From March Meeting

Don't know about anyone else, but I would say we live in exciting times. The Spring City Knitters have been photographing our work for years and sharing it with each other. Now for the first time we are able to share an except from our March 2008 club meeting with the public.

The video demonstration upload is from our most respected member of our club, Dora Goren. Dora has been machine knitting for more years than she cares to remember. But remember she does. She often shares with our club members what it was like when she first started machine knitting. Her struggles to learn because there she didn't live in a world with an information highway, that we have today.

Her demonstration was on how to knit an upside-down raglan round neck pullover by Jodie Raymond. The video clip is from the end of her demonstration. Hope you find it enjoyable.

The next meeting of the Spring City Knitters will be Saturday, September 27th, 2008 at Knit and Sew, 44 N. Main Street, Spring City, PA 19475. Unlike other clubs I am familiar with guests are welcomed for three visits before being asked to join. Our yearly dues are reasonable. Hope reads of this blog will consider visiting our club.
