Welcome to MMKC!

The Midwest Machine Knitters' Collaborative provides a forum to promote fun, interest, appreciation, education, inspiration, and camaraderie in the art of machine knitting. All levels of experience are welcome!

About Us:


Midwest Machine Knitters’ Collaborative, MMKC, was established in 2011. We are a collaborative that is passionate about machine knitting and the materials used in our craft. MMKC presents rosettes to the first place winners in a variety of machine knitting categories at the Minnesota State Fair and we encourage participation in all County Fairs and State Fairs.

MMKC is a member guild of The Textile Center of Minnesota.  To become a member of MMKC, use the Membership Dues link at the bottom of our home page.

Check out our Online Resources for links to machine knitting dealers, yarn shops, and machine knitting blogs.


We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm CST.  Pre-2020, our meetings were in person at the Textile Center of Minnesota. Currently, our monthly member meetings are held via Zoom. If you are interested in attending, please email us
