Crafter [Kraff-tuhr] – Any individual who has the tenacity to pick up a knitting needle, crochet hook, felting needle, bobbin, spindle, shuttle, sewing needle, and whatever other tool of a crafting nature to create beautiful expressions of our self! And we throw parties for anyone who is willing to rip apart their work to make it right. That’s audacity!! Cheers to you!
October 12 and 13, we will once again be bringing Suzoo’s Wool Works to the people. As I said before shaking hands has more impact than a one page, full color ad in a magazine. People throw magazines away, but they never forget that first impression you make with a handshake, a smile or just a little help on a crafting project. I stand firm in my belief that “it takes a Village to raise a Crafter.”
Featured Saturday and Sunday at Booth 20 – Featuring Kraemer Yarns
Crocheted Jewelry – Saturday

Evelyn Van Orden designs original knit and crochet patterns which are available on Ravelry, Craftsy, evelynArts.com, and at fine yarn shops nationwide.
Easy to Make. Elegant to Wear.
Evelyn also teaches knitting and crochet in Southern California and is available to teach nationally and internationally. She offers a unique approach to instruction, giving students the tools and training to master techniques, unleash their own creativity, and personalize their designs. Evelyn has 40 years of knit, crochet, teaching, and design experience.
Jennifer (that’s me) has been an artist all of her life. Needle felting is similar to sculpting or throwing pottery. You have to be aware of the impact of your movement and intention. We learn the basics of sculpting pumpkins from Kraemer Mauch Chunky roving through out the day. Demos will be available along with kits for the Crafter and finished pumpkins for quick gifts. We offer free instruction the rest of October with purchase of the $10.00 pumpkin kit!
So Crafters, come one and all! We are excited to share our talents and wisdom with you. Perhaps you will teach us a think or two. We are excited to have you as a member of our Village of Crafters!
All the best,
