Ginette Bérard

Originally from the Mauricie region, Ginette Bérard traveled around the province of Quebec and in the United States for a short stint in the ’70s. Passionate about hand knitting and machine knitting for the past 35 years, she has perfected her knowledge by attending workshops on knitting machine design offered by the LaSalle College in Quebec City in 1987–1988. She also attended a course on writing knitting patterns with designer Manon Salois. She is familiar with Silver Reed, Singer, Studio, Brother and Passap knitting machines. From 1985 to 2002, I joined the Les mille mailles club as a member and then as president for a few years. She is continually experimenting and learning new techniques. She has passed on her passion for knitting for about 15 years by teaching in Quebec City, and in Montreal since 2002.
