I have been waiting FOUR YEARS for my machine



  • Jeni Allison

    I ordered in 2018 and just heard today that my machine is a further 6 months delayed - mid 2023 now. Every 6 months I get in touch (they never proactively reach out) and it seems to be pushed back another 6. I know they are prioritising new sales and I'm beginning to wonder if the plan is actually to force original backers to ask for refunds as the machine possibly costs more than we paid to manufacture now. I truly believe now I won't ever get this machine.

    I too ordered my machine in 2018 and am without any current updates on delivery... I'm starting to wonder if I will ever get it....

    My machine is now 6 months behind schedule - mid-2023. They never reach out proactively, but every 6 months it seems to be pushed back 6. They're prioritizing new sales, but I wonder if they're forcing original backers to ask for refunds since the machine might cost more to manufacture than we paid. This machine will never be mine.

    I finally gave up and asked for a refund, and it was by far the quickest response I've ever gotten from Kniterate.

    Hello all!

    I have decided, after a long deliberation, to sell my Kniterate machine. I have had the machine for a couple of years, and have shredded lots of yarn in the beginning, then knitted lots of swatches and finally knitted a small collection of accessories (several hundred pieces), which I sold. I am now moving on to new pastures, with a change in direction and a new lifestyle and the machine no longer fits.

    I was originally in batch 5 - don't ask how I got my machine so quickly; its a long story. I paid GBP10k for it and am hoping to sell it for £8k. I cannot organise international shipping - I paid almost £1000 for shipping from China - it is too complicated and expensive, so the machine needs to stay in the UK. I have a platform with industrial casters that it can be moved on, so transit in a van with a tail lift is no problem.

    Anyone interested please get in touch. I'm happy to share pics and files of the things I have made and to answer any questions.
