Knit-A-Bit home of Pacifically Passap
KNIT-A-BIT originated in the Seattle area in 1979 and moved to Oregon City in 1993. Our
goal since the demise of the Passap factory in Switzerland has been to keep machines
running and provide continuing education for Passap knitters, which is the primary reason for
Pacifically Passap. The first Pacifically Passap seminar was held in 1999 to bring together
Passap knitters on the West Coast and also to replace the annual Passap Evolution
seminar once held by now defunct Passap America, Inc. Little did we know the response
would be so enormous.
Pacifically Passap has grown to include four core instructors plus additional guest
instructors. Classes at the seminar range from Passap 101 for beginners, to advanced knit
techniques, and can even include instruction in techniques to embellish your knits.
There’s a great camaraderie in being in a group of knitters that all speak the same language
(Passap), and the energy level is exciting to see. Come join us at Pacifically Passap and
experience a weekend of learning, fun, and meeting new friends.
We're no longer hosting a seminar for Passap knitters. Call it a hiatus or whatever, but we're
bcking off and regrouping at this time. There is a possibility that we may hold smaller
workshops and focus on a particular technique.
