YAHOO GROUPS OF SPECIAL INTEREST TO MACHINE KNITTERS (Refresh your page)

For those of you looking to sell or buy something or looking to find a group specific to your machine here are a few to consider:-

I have added information on each group as I find it at this date (Jan 2011), things change over time so if you are looking at this 6 months later or so you may find that some groups have gone or have been taken over by spam - please let me know if that's what you find. Thanks.
