Pickup Stick & Finger Control Techniques

with Stephanie Flynn Sokolov
Enliven your weaving with bold techniques and impressive texture! Watch one lesson or enjoy them all as you add more than 50 textures to your weaving repertoire.

Move beyond plain weave and explore patterns using finger-controlled techniques and a pickup stick. Join accessory designer and author Stephanie Flynn Sokolov as she shares tips and tricks for using these techniques to create subtle accents or elevate an entire project. Enjoy step-by-step instruction as Stephanie demonstrates how to weave Danish medallions and Spanish lace. Learn to create tapestry-like effects with picked-up loops, Ghiordes knots and weft floats. Then, experiment with weft and warp floats, both separately and collectively. Finally, discover how all of these weave patterns work together, and create fun decorative design touches you can incorporate into any project. Enjoy lifetime access to a weaving reference guide you’ll return to again and again!
