Adult Coloring Books!

We call them Adult Coloring books but there really isn’t an age limit on coloring.  Victoria highly recommends the Unicorn Book by breakthrough coloring artist Angela Van Dam.

Bernat Alize Yarn

Our kid creators decided they really liked being able to knit without using needles.  The Bernat Alize yarn is excellent for teaching some knitting techniques without losing stitches.  This is great for young knitters who may not be dexterous enough yet.  With these simple minky loops, you can create a lot of fun knitting combinations.

Diamond Dotz are a favorite for all ages.  We carry some larger projects which require patience and multiple sittings to complete the piece, and we also carry smaller Diamond Dotz projects making them perfect for many ages and stages of creative development.  Our creative kids think Diamond Dotz projects are great for days when they can’t go outside and play.

Latch Hook

These kids love to craft, and like most kids, they love to use their creativity to make something special.  Latch hook crafts are a great way for them to make something practical for themselves from scratch.  The Garden Gate Latch Work Rug is fantastic for beginners.  Kit includes: pre-cut acrylic yarn, illustrated instructions with an easy to follow chart and polyester/cotton canvas. This project has a canvas that has larger holes which is more comfortable for beginners to learn the technique and allows for quicker projects. Latch hook tool not included.

Gwen Bautista

I was introduced to the fiber arts like many crafters by my great-grandmother. She was determined that if I ever needed to repair some socks or make myself a sweater then I would know how. Little did she know that it has led to a rather large yarn hoarding addiction and fascination with needles. As a life long crafter I am always learning new techniques and improving my skills.
