So Much Yarn! But What To Do With It?

Is a lack of ideas holding you back?

In the Southern New Jersey group where I learned to weave, it wasn't unusual to hear classmates (including me) sigh as they neared the end of a project: "Oh no, now I have to figure out what to make next." If you, too, sometimes suffer from what I call FOWTS (fear of where to start), this short class can be a valuable addition to your fiber art design toolbox. Think of it like warming up your muscles before a big workout.

Symptoms of FOWTS

(Fear of where to start)

  • staring at your yarn stash like it's a full refrigerator where you can't find anything to eat;

  • walking by your naked loom or knitting needles and feeling guilty about not using them;

  • scrolling endlessly through beautiful fiber projects on social media wishing you were that creative

In Color, Pattern, Shape Part 1:

you will...

  • Learn an exercise to spark your creativity
  • Practice techniques to help you visualize your ideas
  • Gain confidence in your own design skills
  • Shake off design paralysis so you can get back to doing what you love...creating things with yarn!
