      Just a reminder, registrations made for September Seminar by September 1st can take a discount off the total fee.


      Lots of changes have been made to Yahoo Groups today, so I am going to re-post the Seminar info here to make it easy to find.


      I will make another post very soon when the daily schedule has been finalized.




      Carole Wurst's 22nd annual September Seminar & Textile Lab for machine knitters will be held Friday-Saturday Sept. 20-21, 9:30-6 each day.


      Pat Plett

      Carole Wurst

      Joyce Hirning 
      ...and several other expert machine knitters. A total of 8 excellent demonstrators.


      We have an excellent list of demonstrations planned, including:

      - Seamless Socks

      - Knitting on the LK150

      - Professional Finishing

      - Knitting Large Sizes on the Machine

      - Beginner and Advanced Ribber Work

      - Double E-Wrap Cast-on

      - Kitchener Stitch and Invisible Seams

      - Quilting on the Passap


      There will be something of interest to everyone during every class hour. Classes are different both days.


      A separate Passap classroom will again be available for the entire seminar. Other classes will be conducted on Silver Reed, Singer, Studio, Brother, KnitKing, Elna and Toyota knitting machines.
