you don't bring supplies.

hook, you'll learn how to make one in about an hour! You will learn how to cast on, the simple stitch, and cast off. Information
on further exploring the afghan stitch will also be handed out, so you can explore advanced stitches on your own outside

way of making rugs. She can often be seen at fiber festivals holding a large stick. Her day job is running Rach-Al-Paca Fiber
Processing for 15 years, along with raising goats, sheep and alpacas.
