S.I.T./Superba Worldwide Brand Names
S.I.T./Groupe Superba of Mulhouse, France produced and marketed knitting machines worldwide under various brand names.
All of the machines and most accessories, regardless of brand, will have the following logo on them:
S.I.T. means Standardisation Internationale de Tricotage or International Standardization of Knitting.
Superba achieved this standardization with all their models of knitting machines. I can assure you of that. All the double bed models I own including brand names Superba, White and Singer use the same size needles, the same Carriages, the same tools and accessories and one operates them and creates knitwear on each one in the same manner.
The difference between models is the style of Electronic Stitch Programmer the particular model came with.
Note the S.I.T. Logo in the upper left corner.
There is a lovely consistency of design built in to every S.I.T./Superba machine.
In this model review you will see both single and double bed models, but the focus is primarily on Double Bed models, as these were the machines Superba produced in the greatest quantity and variety.
