Theresa called and asked me to test out this latch hook. I agreed thinking what did I have to lose. Best latch hook I've ever used! I'm 64 and have been doing latch hook for many years. We all know that eventually the hand holding the tool starts to cramp a bit. Not with this one! One day I actually put in 1,600 pieces of yarn without any cramping. The fingers that held the yarn were sore, but not the hand holding the latch hook. Wouldn't use anything else now.
These perfectly cut, gorgeous fabric strips are a game-changer for me. I ordered several "flavors" including the Tourmaline but they are all uniquely beautiful. Perfect for wrapping rope to make colorful, unique items. Yes, they are a bit spendy, but they more than make up for that in convenience, saving time and cutting labor. The quality and batik appearance of the finished product is a huge upgrade from using regular quilting store fabric and cutting into strips. I'll definitely be placing another order, and I look forward to seeing what new patterns/colors become available... Would love to see more teals and greys in color options:)
I’ve ordered a lot of fabric strips and yardage from color crazy. The colors are beautiful. Service is terrific.
Getting packages from this company feels like I'm receiving a special gift! I love ordering from Color Crazy.
Superior 5-mesh canvas and latch hook tools. Quick order processing and shipping. There was also good customer foloup to make sure all was ok.
Thanks for the great service. Will be placing more orders!
Hook, Loop & Lock Starter Kit - Sedona Trivet & Book
I previously had done latch hook 40 years ago making some beautiful wool rugs. I ordered a new latch hook kit with acrylic yarn. The latch hook shredded about 50% of the yarn. I ordered a new name brand name hook and had the same problem. I ordered a 5 mesh and 3.75 mesh from another company, thinking that the 5 mesh in my 3.75 canvas would solve the problem if the 3.75 didn't work. It was better, but still over 30% got shredded. I ordered the 3.75 and 5 mesh from Color Crazy and all of a sudden I got a 99% success rate.
I thought maybe my technique had improved, since I hadn't done latch hook in so long, so I went back and used the 1st tools I had, and shredded 2 in a row. I won't use any other latch hooks now other than Color Crazy.
Locking Loops is beautifully illustrated with clear, concise instructions. As usual, Theresa’s project designs are creative as far as color usage and texture. I highly recommend this book for anyone wo enjoys locker hooking
I love the colored fabric strips from Color Crazy! The quality is great, less fraying. Love to stock up when there's a sale!
Got the canvas. It was beautifully wrapped, like a little treasure. It's easier than I'd thought to hook the yarn into it, even the extra firm (I got both for testing). Thanks!
I was so happy to get My rug canvas now I can start My project. I usually make My own design and have fun at it. I love rug hooking.
Liked the colors very much. Haven’t used yet but I will.
The kit contains a wide assortment of textured fabric strips in lovely fall colors. The full size design is easy to trace onto the canvas, or you can use it as a counted chart, similar to counted cross-stitch. It is a good kit for a crafter with some experience in locker-hooking. Watch her video online, it is very helpful for beginners and answers many questions.
This is a very complete kit. The comprehensive book is well written, answers many questions, great pictures!
There are many projects in the book besides the rug.
It is a very good buy for the cost! The kit shipped promptly and was well packed, arrived in perfect condition.
Great quality and if you need it to be longer you can order multiple and ask they leave it as one large canvas. Very strong but you can still easily cut it with household scissors.
