As you may know, I’m not just a sewing diva, but I love embroidery and other crafts too.
After Romeo and Juliet is finished, I’m going to experiment with making my own dolls. With the filming of Romeo and Juliet, I dabbled in wig-making but found I can really use more background knowledge in this area.
While I was at a writers’ conference in Seattle, I visited All Points Yarn in Des Moines, Washington. As fate would have it, I picked the perfect spot to hone my yarn-related knowledge.
The proprietor of All Points Yarn, H. Morgan Hicks, shared his knowledge of yarn and doll hair-making. And boy oh boy, this gentleman really knew his stuff! Although his shop didn’t have exactly what I needed for the doll wig project I had in mind, Mr. H. Morgan Hicks was able to steer me in the right direction and offered me tips and advice that will be invaluable down the road.
So if you’re in the Seattle area, and you need some yarn or advice on a yarn-related project, be sure to visit All Points Yarn at 21921 Marine View Drive South, in Des Moines. If you’re not in their area, their website offers original patterns and CDs, DesignaKnit Software, knitting machines, an email newsletter, and more! You can also connect with H. Morgan Hicks (a profoundly knowledgeable and polite businessman) through his Facebook page.
Any visit you make to All Points Yarn, whether in person or online, is well worth your time!
