Subject: Antique Knitters Circular
In January 2002, knitting machine hobbyists were invited to participate in development
of the Antique Knitters Circular. The purpose of the Antique Knitters Circular was
to provide a subscription-type newsletter or journal that informed, entertained, and
communicated matters of interest to people who collected, restored and operated antique
and vintage knitting machines.
A small group of interested people contributed articles and subscribed, but not
enough interest was shown to generate a growth in circulation. Therefore, after publishing
seven issues of Antique Knitters Circular, the project was discontinued.
Those seven issues contained a wealth of information about antique knitting machines
and the manner in which they were manufactured, sold and used. They have
been edited and placed here for the benefit of all.
