We are wild about weaving!!!! Curious about weaving? Our beginner class includes the use of one of our Ashford Sample It looms so that you can learn how to use the loom, make a scarf, and decide it weaving might be of further interest. This is the ULTIMATE STASH BUSTER ! The Sample It is inexpensive and very easy to use. No crafting skills required. Long Tail Knits is an authorized dealer for all Ashford products, so if a larger loom is what you want, Jeannine can take your order.
We love the opportunity to showcase our products to creative customers and have added another knit, crochet, and fiber art market to our show schedule.
We are very pleased to add loads of spinning and felting supplies to our product assortment. We specialize in longwool conservation breed sheep's wool and locks, mohair, loads of sparkly shimmery, glitzy stuff, AND alpaca, both suri and huacaya, in all forms for spinning and felting
Long Tail Knits is now a dealer for Ashford Spinning Wheels. Both Jeri and Kathy use the Ashford wheels for all of our spinning needs.
