Mary Anne Oger, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada
MAO is a creative, self-taught machine knitter, well-known for her classic, wearable designs and her knack for adding common sense and humour to machine knitting. She is adept in textures and great finishing techniques which can be used by all knitters, any gauge, all machines. Mary Anne's original designs have been published in 'Canada's Fashion Machine', 'The Carriage Trade', 'Machine Knit America', 'Machine Knitters Source' and 'KNITWORDS'. With almost 200 seminar and workshop credits all over North America in past years, her popularity and teaching skills are undisputed. Beginning publishing in November 1994, Mary Anne has set high industry standards for quality work with her books and patterns. MAO was the editor/publisher of 'KNITWORDS', a quarterly magazine, for all machine knitters, distributed world-wide. 2010 and Issue No 53 saw the end of that era. Currently she is writing and designing for Knit'nStyle, a bi-monthly hand knitting magazine, providing a slice of machine knitting on the manual mid gauge machine. Her books, patterns and magazines are still for sale (see Bookstore) and she continues to provide new patterns and articles through the Pattern of the Month.
