"Weaving on a Beginner's Wooden Loom"
I received an email from Kati Matteson who was looking for a needle felting class for her children and found my site on-line. I told her that I teach needle felting, macrame and also weaving. She was also looking for someone who teaches crocheting. I gave her the name of a crocheting teacher.
On December 12, 2019 Kati came to my home with 4 of her children ages 2, 5, 7, and 9. I gave them each a “Beginner’s Wooden Loom”, pre-cut yarn, a pattern and taught them how to weave. Kati wove too. She shared her loom with her two year old daughter, Gwen.
Her children were wonderful and I invited them to come back to my home to learn needle felting and any other craft that I could teach them at a future time.
