Reutlingen, New York - Flat knitting machine builder Stoll is to hold an exclusive seminar in New York in September as part of the company's 145-year anniversary celebrations.
The first Stoll Symposium, which will take place at its New York City facility on September 27th, 2018, is described as a means to give back to the key industry players that utilize Stoll’s machinery and services, as well as to educate designers and brands alike on the various knitting solutions and techniques available through working with Stoll.
The Stoll Symposium is a one-time only, free seminar that commences at 9:30am EDT and concludes after its evening reception at 8:30pm EDT. The event includes seven key sessions that will walk attendees through a technical leap in time from knitting applications to techniques to machinery throughout the years. The sessions will provide an in-depth comprehension of Stoll ADF & CMS techniques, Stoll-artwork, Stoll-autocreate, Stoll-knit and wear, yarn experience and usage, and Technical Textiles at Stoll.
There will also be an additional session dedicated to Stoll’s partnerships and customers. These companies will be discussing the current trends of the market in relation to knitting, their businesses, and technical textiles as a whole.
Stoll’s CEO, Andreas Schellhammer, and Head of Fashion & Technology, Joerg Hartmann, will be toasting the evening reception and will present Stoll’s impact on product creation and fashion throughout the years.
Andreas Schellhammer, Chief Executive Officer of Stoll, said: “We are constantly evolving as a global manufacturer, and the best way to stay afloat in this competitive industry is to learn from your customers.
