Metropolitan knitting machine Museum
I have always been fascinated by knitting machines and the endless possibilities and joy they present to those who love knitting. I am a craftsperson: I love to do arts and crafts! I like to sew, crochet, felt, create outfits, embroider, etc. Over the years, though, knitting has always been a part of my life.
When 15 years ago my husband presented my first knitting machine, he fairly soon understood what he got into with that! Since then, I managed to buy and take good care of 2 more knitting machines until my lifetime hobby and passion became my daily work.
At the end of 2021, I was given an opportunity to buy an almost 100 years old company that specialises in knitting machines! The day I became the owner, I decided that it is time to make some more history for this historical company, and here we are, Metropolitan Knitting machine Museum!
The company's 3rd owners, Carole and Mark, started the vintage knitting machine collection decades ago! I admire their commitment and patience in creating this unique piece of history!
Over time, Metropolitan will post short articles in the Museum section and share its unique treasures with you, my dear readers! Vintage knitting machines deserve to be part of our history, history of our creativity, uniqueness, and individuality!

According to different information sources, Passap M201 was a knitting machine with a steel body and was the first to have latch needles. This vintage machine came from the 1950s and was one of a kind for its time. Later on, a ribbing attachment was created for this machine.
Unfortunately, not much information is available for
All we know is that this machine comes from the 1950s too.

I discovered this excellent machine in between knitting machine boxes. This machine helps to join two knitted pieces!
