Beginning Weaving: Weave a Necklace

Using our Mini Weaving Loom students learned how to warp a loom, weave with a needle and shuttle, and remove work from the loom. Attendees practiced these methods as they made a woven necklace to wear home.

Keynote Dinner DIY

As we awaited food, attendees had time to do some DIY! At the Clover DIY station we taught participants how to make tassels and pom poms using our Tassel Makers and Pom Pom Makers.

Casual Crafting: Pom Pom and Flower Loom Earrings

Students played with a variety of yarn, jewelry findings, Pom Pom Makers and Flower Looms to make a pair of unique earrings.

Beyond Knit and Purl: Picture Knitting

Knitters learned a new knitting technique with intarsia. A technique that makes knitting an image into your work a neat possibility. Using Takumi Knitting Needles just makes the experience that much better.
