I only want to say, I’m learning lots about locker hooking by reading your book; Locking Loops, and thank you for writing such a good instructional.
You’re welcome Anna! I am so glad “Locking Loops” is helping you discover more about locker hooking.
When I discovered Lockerhooking I was in Edison end Fords Wintergarden in Ft Myers Florida in 2009.I saw two ladies making some handicraft one was quilting, and the other on was doing a bathroom rug,and i thought it looks wery fun,but I didn’t ask the lady anything about it because I was to shy.
When I come home to Sweden I started my detective work looking in every store for the needle and canvas.I also looked on internet but I didn’t know the name of the handicraft.
I found a webbsite where You can by hooks needles and stoffs to knittiing , and I mailed here and ask if she had seen a crothethook with an eye in one end and a hook in the other.She send me an adress of hooks from Japan,and there I got the name Lockerhook.Then it was easier to Google on the net.
When I looked for somewhere to buy it I found a store in England,which sold startingkit so I bought it from there,I saw also the name Teresa Pulido in some article about her book,so I visited a Swedish bookselling link and they could get it to me.
I have made some different kind of totes and bangle bracelets,and now am I making one with the new technique ruched frames,and it is nearly ready.
I like lockerhooking very much and I have also inspired my daughter to try.
