There’s something special about teaching children to work with their hands. This is why we are so crazy about Harrisville Designs and their projects for the young. We carry a range of their kits in a variety of different fibre activities such as: spool knitting, cotton loops, knitting, felting, crochet, drop spindle and weaving.
We love their looms which allow children to discover the basic techniques of weaving while producing something they can truly be proud of. At present we carry the following looms for the young:the Back Strap, Potholder, Peg Loom, Lap Loom. We also carry the Cricket Loom by Schacht which is a fabulous rigid heddle for young weavers.
Looking for a small project to do with your child? We have a make your own stuffy kits with everything you need. There’s a host of characters to choose from: Mousenstein, Owl, Kit Kat and Polar Bear.
Or maybe you need a project? We have heaps of new wool in the shop: Cascade Paints, Ecco Andean DK, Jawool Sock, and the most loveliest of sock wools, Sockittome. Come in and see us, I promise we won’t let you leave empty handed.
