Why Would You Ever Want to Pay For Knitting and Crochet Patterns or Lessons When You Can Get All That for Free?
Read this:
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting message board digest with the latest knitting pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our knitting mailing list distribution. Right away, you'll get access to more knitting-related material (pictures, patterns, tips) than contained in all knitting books and magazines you could ever buy. And you'll get all that for free.

You'll be able to talk and share ideas with more knitters than you could meet if you attended all the largest trade shows. And you'll be able to do all that without leaving your house!

Don't delay! Join the best knitting and crochet community on the Internet.

Yes I have. One person has one set that is bent also stained and way over priced. And one person has one new set that is still way over priced. I am sorry but 65 dollars for a set of sheets is way to much money.

I tried to get the set that was bent as I know someone who will try to make them for me. They need the sample first. Since the bent ones wont work thought she would sell them cheap. She wanted more for the bent ones then the other lady does for the new ones. The funny thing was she refused my offer 3 times and nobody bought them or even bid on them so they relisted them. lol

There's a thought if someone has one they can't use cause it is stained up or something please send one to me so I can have some made.

I paid $ 80.00 for a set and would charge that if I sold them.
Initially I thought that to be very expensive but then getting
often 5 patterns on one sheet cuts down on the cost.
Just think when you buy any knitting pattern how much you
have to spend.

There are postings all of the time on how people need to keep in account the age of the machine and the age of the products they are selling/buying as everything has a wear date. Even though many of these things are still in the package and never used they are not new and still have a wear date.

My guess and I am wrong many times is that they didn't pay that much for them brand new. At 20 or 30 years old and being a thin form of plastic they are close to their wear date. Example the film in a photo album as it gets older it gets yellow and starts to crack and crumble.

I am new to this however I have seen so much over pricing and know many people who love their hobbies no matter what those hobbies are will have a sucker sticker on their forehead. (for lack of a better phrase)

True, some things deteriorate over time. I have several sets of
patterned Mylar Sheets since I bought the KH 910 new and
can happily report that those Sheets are in fine condition.
No sign of break down or stiffening.
The blanc sheets I have were bought much, much later and
therefore are much newer and the old and the new ones
seem very much the same.

Mylar is nothing like Photo materials. I process my own
pictures the old way and know.

I know that I just used that as an example. I was using the flim in a photo album that hold your pictures I guess I should have stated that better.

Not a problem. Just as Yarn and Yarn is not the same neither is
plastic and plastic.

I also have a KH910 which I purchased new along with the original mylar sheets. They are in fine condition and I still use them with no problems. I also bought blank sheets shortly after I purchased my machine and they are also in excellent condition. No sign of break down or stiffening.

I also have a KH910 that I have had and not used for over 20 years. I can not found my pattern cards or the stitch measure scale tapes. I search e-bay and other web sites -but did not see any their. Never worked with the patterns before, but would like to do so. Have read about the mylar sheets and can purchase, but how would I produce the card and holes that feed the patterns? Do all patterns need a card on this machine? I have the books and was able to program a pattern in, but is not working without the pattern. Will have to learn everything over it has been a long time since I used the machine. Was not knitting right until I purchase a need sponge bar - works great now. Can anyone give advise about knitting the patterns? Thanks Anita Needing the KH-910 pattern cards and Stitch Measure Scale tapes.

Did the sheets that you purchased come with the side holes to feed the sheets? And where did you order the sheets from? Thanks

If at all possible go for the genuine Brother mylar sheets, whatever the cost, even if you can only afford one. I have five mylar sheets which are over 45 years old and have carried at least 200 or 300 shapes each and probably far more. Having had their shapes drawn with washable (watercolour) pens each time, washed away with weak washing up liquid solution, kept rolled in their original container when not in use, they are all still in perfect condition, not even discoloured and certainly not brittle.
