Weaving Wonders: From Yarn Fest to Travel Looms!

Hey there, fellow yarn enthusiasts! 🧶

What a whirlwind it's been since we hit up Interweave Yarn Fest! Meeting all of you amazing crafters was an absolute blast. Seriously, I left feeling like I'd just spent three days with a bunch of kindred spirits, swapping tips and tricks like we've known each other for ages. I had the BEST time!

One thing that really got everyone buzzing was our nifty travel-size loom. Who knew something so compact could pack such a punch in the crafting world? The response was beyond awesome, and it got me thinking about how we could spread even more weaving joy?

So many of you lovely folks were eager to dive into the world of weaving but weren't quite sure where to start. And hey, I totally get it.
