Welcome to The Knitting School
Helen Sharp, a successful and respected sweater designer, recognized a need for improved education in machine knitting and knitwear design. With that end in mind, in 2008 she created The Knitting School.
Fashion designers, fiber artists and home knitters can come together for classes in hands-on machine knitting and machine knitting technology in a friendly and nurturing environment. The Knitting School™ offers both four-week sessions and week-end intensives covering the basics of machine knitting through advanced garment design and construction.
The Machine Knitting Technology class presents students with the basic principles of weft knit construction. An Intensive 12-hour immersion for designers and technicians already working in the garment industry, fashion students, and individuals needing technical sweater knowledge.
