April Mills, The Knitting Mills

Hello, I'm April Mills of The Knitting Mills.

In 1969 I borrowed a Studio 301 knitting machine from an Aunt and fell in love with machine knitting. But that machine had to be returned, and two children later I bought a Studio 301 in 1974. Constantly trading up since then, Studio, Brother, and Passap machines (6 total) are presently in my studio.

"The Knitting Mills" has published designs in knitting publications since 1990, and has sold garments at juried Arts and Crafts Shows since 1984.

I was the technical editor for the Machine Knitters Source magazine for six years, until May, 1997, when the magazine moved to Texas. I have also managed production machine knitters for hat, sweater, and Christmas stocking companies.

Teaching at knitting seminars around the U.S. and Canada, and recently Australia and New Zealand, is an activity that I enjoy. I taught at the two Technical and Design Forums, and Brit-Am 1996.

I can teach at your seminar or guild workshops. Please contact me for a complete listing of the classes.
