Locker Hooking is Back!

Locker Hooking is an obscure craft that's making it's way back.... What is it you ask? Well, it's a fun, easy-to-learn method for turning strips of fabric or yarn into fabulous home decor, stylish fashion accessories and one-of-a-kind gifts. Check out this amazing wall hanging that Peggy from our Soquel store made:

For inspiration and details you must take a look at hook, loop & lock by Theresa Pulido. We fell in love with the projects from this book. So much so, that we created a video to explain the locker hooking technique. You can find the video at the Beverly's web site, just click here.

Look for a "how-to" for the luggage tag made by Kathy - coming this fall.
