Featured Pattern

This crocheted wrap is so beautiful — we love the stunning texture! It looks great in self-striping yarns and in solids. Caryn wrote up instructions for the Alpine Stitch - free to download!
We made the wrap with 2 balls of Universal Yarns Major - a super affordable and soft 100% acrylic yarn!

New Stuff and Restocks
We got in a BIG Cascade order. We're trying to get it all checked in and in the cubbies while taking care of Yarn Crawlers. We've also got yarn from Crafting My ChaosBlue Mule and Kyla's Lab that we wouldn't let them take home after their trunk shows and Turtle Looms that Bluebonnet Crafters left behind. So if you missed their shows, you can still get their goodies!

The Tip Jar
To cut down on counting when following a chart, mark vertical lines on your chart every 10 squares, and use stitch markers to mark 10 stitches apart on your knitting or crochet. Now you can find your place more easily!


 Beginning Tapestry Weaving

Saturday, October 27 from 10 am-4 pm, $48
Craft: Weaving
Teacher: Debbi

Remember how hard you worked to not beat your weft down too hard in rigid heddle or multi-shaft weaving? In this class you’ll be pressing the weft down so hard that the warp can’t be seen.

Tapestry weaving is a technique wherein you can draw pictures in your weaving. It is to weaving what intarsia is to knitting. Typically worked on a tapestry loom, it can be done on your rigid-heddle but you will need an extra tool to pack the weft down tightly enough. In this class, we’ll be learning the basic techniques of this style of weaving.

One 6-hour session
