About This Class

Thank you for joining me! In this class, I will teach you how to make your own weaving sticks from simple and inexpensive materials. These sticks are my best-seller in my Etsy Shop, but why wait for them to be shipped when you can make your own in an hour or two.

I have made myself sets in different sizes, but in this class I will be using 3/8" craft sticks, which are available at most craft stores or the craft section in your local Dollar Store.

For those who have taken my first class, Learn to Spin Your Own Yarn, this is a great way to show off your yarn.


To see a visual demonstration of how to use the weaving sticks, here is the free enrollment link.
