Hi I’m Amber, a knitwear designer and published author teaching online machine knitting workshops

Online machine knitting workshops


**Learn how to machine knit in your own time at your own pace, with videos to keep forever. I have six machine knitting workshops available starting with the basics, to more intermediate ribbing, intarsia and jumper making. These are brilliant for complete beginners to intermediates!**

Why learn machine knitting from me?

  • I have 17 years experience with knitting machines, learning at University whilst studying fashion and textiles.

  • Taught 100’s of people both in person and during online workshops in machine knitting since 2016.

  • Taught a Masterclass, workshop and presented for the online Machine Knitting Community.

  • Author of “Machine knitting techniques: Texture & 3D Effects”. Published in 2023 by The Crowood Press. I love showing what incredible things you can do with this machine.

  • I use my many years of experience & large collection of samples & garments to cover the basic techniques but expand them & give you lots of new ideas and the confidence in using them.

  • Over the past 8 years I’ve made and sold luxury knitwear products direct to customers and through several stockists. In 2020 I showcased & sold products in a pop-up with John Lewis in partnership with The Great British Exchange.

  • A first class BA (HONS) in fashion/textile design and was selected to show at Graduate Fashion Week in the Bristol and Gala show. My work has been exhibited as part of Shanghai Fashion week and as a finalist at the Knit and Stitch Graduate show where I was presented with an innovation award by the Craft Council.

I will be on maternity leave from 3rd May 2024-February 2025.

Online workshops and machine knitting patterns are still available here.

Please feel free to email during this time, but I ask for patience during the first 8 weeks whilst I navigate life with a new born and toddler.

Machine knitting workshops will continue to be available during this time here.

I will not be restocking my book for a while, you can still buy the book from most online retail stores which you can find here.
