Update on Machines for sale in or near Raleigh

The 930 which I had listed for sale in November has been sold, but its ribber is still available. Carmen is the owner of this ribber for sale.

My friend Donna has an 860 Studio midgauge machine for sale.

As sometimes happens, one of my knitting friends has died. Her machines will be up for auction (silent auction) with the proceeds to benefit Ovarian Cancer Research. Here is the info.


 The silent auction will be at 7 PM on April 16, at the Craft Center in the basement of the Thompson Theater on the NCSU campus. This is in Raleigh, NC.  We would welcome you and anyone else from TMK who would care to come.  Though we (Marilyn  and other hand knitters) have not yet inventoried all the yarn, I know there are a number of cones of fine yarn and some fine yarn that has been wound into balls, all of which would be suitable for standard gauge machines.  There is also a great deal of heavier commercial and handspun yarn that would be suitable for handknitting or for use on a mid gauge or bulky machine.
WE ALSO NEED TO DISPOSE OF HER KNITTING MACHINES AND ACCESSORIES.  Here is an 
inventory:

Brother knitting machine model 4.3.  (Vintage)

Brother 940 knitting machine with manuals

Brother 850 ribber  with cover and manuals

Brother stand for 940 machine and ribber

Brother KRC-900 color changer with manual

Garter bar

Brother knitleader KL116 in case with manual

Studio linker model DL 1000 with manual

This announcement gives you plenty of time to research what these machines or accessories would sell for, so that you can make an informed bid for them. Remember, the proceeds will go for Ovarian Cancer Research. My friend, Carol, had not even reached the age for retirement.
