MachKnitz invites knitters to showcase their craft at their fashion show in September.
“The idea is to give knitters a platform to gain income and exposure,” explained Adri Grib of the NPO.
The organization hopes to spread its passion for knitting as widely as possible.
“We want local designers to bring everything they’ve already created, or come to our space and create even more,” added Andre van Staden, president of the organization.
The public will have the opportunity to order the clothes after seeing them at the fashion show.
MachKnitz specializes in knitting using electric and manual knitting machines.

“Knitting, like any other art and craft, depends on the time you put into it. If you practice enough, you will master it,” he added.
They organize classes every Saturday from 10:00 am.
The organization recently opened a knitting shop in its premises in Place Loiuse Botha.
“Knitting is a dying art and we really want to bring it back to life in our community. It’s also our way of giving back to the skills we have,” added Grib.
She said they also hope to attract young people to art. The NPO also has volunteers who knit blankets and donate them to charity. For more information about the event, contact Grib on 083 552 0068.
