TAKE-HOME KIT: weaving
My printer ran out of ink so this will be delayed another day...
3 balls of acrylic yarn, wide wooden weaving loom for older children, narrow heavy duty chipboard loom for younger children, a popsicle stick "shuttle" (needle), KID FRIENDLY instructions, and ONLINE videos made by me. Colors of yarn will vary.
Other things you will need: scissors, tape, stick (optional)
WORDS TO KNOW:
weft: horizontal threads
warp: vertical threads
loom: what we will be weaving on
shuttle: ours is a popsicle stick..a way to get the yarn through the warp
DID YOU KNOW?! Weaving is one of the oldest crafts in the world?! People started weaving about 12,000 years ago! Humans would weave branches and twigs to make fences, homes, and baskets. Even some birds weave their nests!
Porch pick-up at 32 Colonial Rd in Hingham, *any time after you have checked out, please make sure you receive an email that the purchase went through. NEW this week: bags are hanging on hooks on the inside of my propped open storm door which will remain open about 8am-8pm daily. (This has solved my Massachusetts weather challenges.)
Please note as of now there are FOUR types of take-home bags so make note of which bag you need and please only touch the one you are taking. If someone else is here to pickup please keep a distance.
Each bag was prepared with the utmost care, handled only byme while wearing gloves.
Thank you for supporting a very local and very small business. :)
