Thank you to everyone who came to the Queen of Peace Holiday Bazaar! So many people, so many neat crafts! The volunteers were extremely helpful and it was nice talking to so many new Loopy Lady fans! You are fans now, right? I don’t update this site very often, so please like my Facebook page for more updates and ordering info. The address is https://www.facebook.com/loopyladydesigns.
Here is my great friend and former neighbor Mary Weber, modeling a Cubs scarf! I take orders! Hers has baseballs instead of the Cubs logo.
My wonderful Aunt Brenda requested a Breast Cancer Awareness scarf. It was actually difficult to find a Breast Cancer Ribbon embellishment, but I finally found a keychain I deconstructed and voila!
The craft fair at Lasalle Elementary School went well, but I had a special encounter that made it even better. A little girl came up to me and asked if she could watch while I knitted. She was there with her mom, who had a booth. The little girl liked to craft and had some beaded ornaments and perler bead magnets she had made and was selling. Even though I knew she could steal my business because she was younger and cuter than me, I taught her how to finger knit. She had brought her own yarn over and was so happy that she picked it up so easily. She went back to her booth and merrily knitted away for a little while. Then she came back over when she had reached the end of her skein and asked me how to finish it off. I showed her how to cast off, then helped her pick out an embellishment and taught her how to sew it all together. She proudly ran off to show it to her mom. Then she came back with a little bag and gave it to me and thanked me for teaching her. In the bag were 2 beaded ornaments she had made. I gave her a big hug and felt so delighted and peaceful, touched by kindness, and I remembered that I was her age when I learned how to finger knit. The gift goes on.
One last chance to see Loopy Lady Designs in person! Saturday, December 12th from 9am-2pm, Lasalle Elementary School, 1511 Milburn Ave, Mishawaka. I heard there are tons of vendors at this fair and it’s also a fundraiser for the school. Speaking of schools, I have had several requests for high school scarves, so I’m currently working on Mishawaka and Marian scarves to have Saturday. I already have a black and gold for Penn, red and blue for Adams, and green and white for Washington. Who else wants what? There’s still time to custom-order Loopy Lady scarves for the holidays, but I need to have them in soon! My hands only work so quick!
Loopy Lady will have booths at the following:
Thursday, Dec 3rd at St. Matthew’s School 6-8pm.
Saturday, Dec 16th at LaSalle Elementary School 9am-2pm.
I’ll have tons of my scarves on display and you can also pick yarn and embellishments to custom make a scarf!
This fluffy and soft scarf will feel so warm around your neck and shoulders, and the elephant is just hanging out on the side to keep you company. Wouldn’t this make a great teacher gift for Christmas? $15! Extra $5 and I’ll ship anywhere in the continental US.
I really need to use a better camera. This is a quirky 2-loop scarf with yellow and pink skull charms. They kind of clink together when you move and it sounds like jolly skull music. This one is $15 and I also have other plain bright rainbow scarves. Please email or leave a comment on the Feedback page if you have any questions or would like to see a specific scarf or design.
Loopy Lady will be at the 6th Harvest Holiday Craft Fair Sat, Nov 21, 2015 at Sts Peter & Paul Social Hall, 59250 Keria Trail, South Bend, IN 46614 from 9am to 3pm. Featuring crafters, a holiday bake sale, and breakfast & lunch served. This is my first craft fair ever, so please come see my unique scarves amongst the ceramic porch geese and Scentsy booths! I understand there is a pancake breakfast. Who doesn’t like pancakes? Good food, good crafts, direct sales (if you’re into that stuff; I do love me some Thirty-One!), and you can get all your Christmas gifts from Loopy Lady! Everyone needs a finger-knit, original decorative scarf for Christmas! Hanukkah! Kwanzaa! I’m getting off the computer now.
