I’m hoping this year more people will discover locker hooking. I’m working on sharing more about this craft, and thanks to Stampington & Company and their beautiful and collectible publications, more crafters will discover it this spring. Their latest issue of GreenCraft Magazine features my contributed article, “Hooked” on Sari,” covering locker hooking bangles with recycled sari fabric and silk strips. The bangles feature the standard locker hooking technique covered in both of my books. The rich blue and green bangle with the silver clasp is made using the new “Ruched Frames” technique introduced in my Locking Loops book.
Color Crazy has a free pattern and the “How to Locker Hook a Bangle Bracelet” tutorial video. You can also find some great locker hooking supplies like bundles of Color Crazy Sari Ribbon, canvas and tools.
