WHAT TO MAKE
If you're not quite sure yet what to make, we have a lot of gaps still - see this list. I'm also happy to chat and brainstorm ideas.

CREATIVE DIRECTION
The photographer and designer haven't been selected yet but the creative direction will be bright, modern, fun, high contrast, pastely. I'll continue to keep you posted. So as you finalize your projects, please keep this in mind.

 

TOOL USED
We will be shipping the Big A tool model with the book. If you have a weaving project, please make sure you use this tool. For any other project, you can use any 5" tool because they will produce the same size poms, tass, etc. 

If you need a tool, please let me know.

MAILING ADDRESS
Please let me know when you're ready to ship and I will send you a label or comp you for the cost.
