Do you have bits and pieces of yarn skeins everywhere you look?
You are not alone my friend! I found my guest on a quest to use up the little bits of yarn laying around my studio. You know those little quarter skeins you try to stuff away when you don’t have the heart to throw them out? Since I don’t have enough for a full knit or crochet project, this led me to think outside the box and look to other fiber arts as a solution. Today we’re going to explore the world of weaving together!
I’m joined by Kate from MarquisWeaves, talented maker and Etsy shop owner in the weaving space. She generously shares the very basics – just what a beginner needs to know to dabble or give weaving a try.
- About Kate and why she got into weaving
- A little about her business and how it started
- Where to get fiber for weaving (if you need it!)
- All about looms and where to buy them
- The other tools you’ll need to finish your first project
- Online resources to learn how to weave
Now if you haven’t done so already, click on that play button at the top of the page to hear from Kate!
Irresistible yarn is a jumbo #7 yarn that’s full of texture and color, making it perfect for those popping 3D elements I want for my wall hanging. Hygge with its soft fuzziness will add an organic and cozy feel and Colorscape will make it all come to life with gorgeous colors!
