Yarn Sewing ~

I'd not heard of it before, but tomorrow I am heading about an hour east to take a yarn sewing class.  We will make a 5" x 10" mat.  The description of the class is as follows.  "Yarn sewing, a technique that predates rug hooking, can be used to make rugs, table mats, or wall hangings.  It does not require frames, hooks or cutting wool strips so it is a portable project."  Just what I need.  One more craft I don't have time for but it sounds like fun :)

Sunday is my favorite annual antique show in Milan, Ohio, the birthplace of Thomas Edison.  It is held on the square and there is no admission.  I hope I don't find too many things I can't live without . . . lol!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Will be waiting to hear more about your class. I too have more projects (crafts) than I can handle but always am curious.

    Have fun

  2. That looks really interesting and I like how the piece looks. I did get a book from the library with different ways to make rugs and saw something like a tapestry style. You will have to tell us more about it, after the class.


  3. I've never heard of it either. I'm curious also and I hope to see a close up of your yarn sewing rug. I tried to see a close up of your sample but it was all fuzzy and I couldn't see the details.


  4. I have never heard of it so I will be excited to see what you learn. It would be so nice to have a project like that to take places with me for my hands to be busy.
    Have fun time at the show. Are you going to rent a UHaul? Just kidding. :)

  5. I've never heard of yarn sewing either! Looks like chenille from the picture....can't wait to see what you think about it!

  6. Can't wait to see what you sew with the yarn!! Sounds like fun!

  7. Like others, never heard of yarn sewing! Milan Ohio? Need to Google it but I'm sure it's farther than I think.

  8. I too am interested to hear more after you've been to the workshop...have fun!

  9. This is an attention grabber. I want to go to this class !!!
    Will be wating eagerly to hear what you have learned ;)

  10. Looks like locker hooking, but with yarn, maybe? I'm sure the class was fun! Looking forward to hearing more!

  11. That had always been my favorite antique show too Lauren. Your class sounds VERY interesting to me!!!

  12. Looks like fun! I lets us know how you like it
