Hill Country Weavers hosting 'Kismet' release party today

See also

Local yarn store Hill Country Weavers serves Austin with not only yarn and fiber, but also with patterns from local designers in collections like "Musings from Mercury Hall" and "Prairie Bliss". Their newest book, "Kismet", represents their first foray into weaving.

Introducing the book, the store says, "So often we see new weavers at a loss as to where to take their new craft, but there is so much beyond the scarf that can be accomplished with even the simplest loom." The patterns in Kismet can all be woven on a rigid heddle loom and utilize knitting and crochet techniques to add fabric embellishment. Neckwear dominates the book, with scarves, cowls and poncho pieces featuring texture and pattern. The also book includes a woven skirt, mitts, and blanket.

For those who haven't put down their needles and hooks to try weaving yet, the Weaving Made Easy class later this month is an introduction to the craft for all levels requiring no previous experience.

Available now in print and as an ebook, the store is hosting a "Kismet" release party this Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. As well as the book, they will also be celebrating owner Suzanne Middlebrooks' birthday, and so have extra treats and surprises planned.
