Join the Cricket Club

June 17, 2009

Because of the tremendous interest in our Cricket loom, our very own Melissa has started a Cricket Club on Ravelry. This is the place to share your enthusiasm for rigid heddle weaving, your projects, get ideas, helpful hints, and become a part of the Cricket Loom weaving community. We’ve been hearing that people can’t resist the Cricket due to its cuteness–as well as being easy as pie to use and take along, as well as super affordable.

Just go to and join The Cricket Club Group. And if you don’t know what Ravelry is, it’s an on-line community of fiber enthusiasts. You can get patterns, information, enthusiasm with like minded souls. It’s like Facebook for fiberholics.

Happy Weaving! chirp, chirp.
