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.
Easy to follow introduction, beautiful locker hooking bag. Yes, I will order again.
So very nice not to have to cut strip and they are so very fast on shipping. I have made locker hooking rugs for Christmas and it sure has saved me time making them and they have such great variety .
I use the 5 mesh canvas for large projects and when I purchase kits with the 3.75 mesh. I discard the 3.75 mesh and use the 5 mesh instead. The results are a much softer, dense rug. The results are beautiful. I also use counted cross stitch patterns and translate the colors onto the rug. It's a little tricky since counted cross stitch threads come in hundreds of colors while rug yarn is limited, but I have had great results with this. Can't thank you enough for your service. I inadvertently ordered the wrong canvas but one phone call to you and you fixed everything for me.
This is a fabulous small hook, very nicely made. It is quite useful for miniature projects, and I also use it with pin weaving looms. It is only 5 inches long, compared to a regular 6 1/2 inch locker hook. I am very happy with it!
