I have wanted to try locker hooking for years and finally gave it a try using the star-making kit to create little holiday decorations for co-workers and family. What a blast! I am now addicted and look forward to a larger project (without the challenge of framing a non-linear piece). The books and You Tube videos are very helpful, too. And the materials provided are gorgeous, although one of the advantages of this technique is that you can use many different types of textiles and can use up leftovers and/or select special materials and embellishments for a partiular look.
