Are you familiar with Woolkeeper?
Woolkeeper is a wool design company and a wool shop in Oswego, Illinois.
I've been wanting to go there for ages!
Last Saturday I finally did!
Kathleen Wall is Woolkeeper and a very kind and welcoming soul!
When you walk in the door you are greeted by her beautiful original designs!
I loved this fun monthly series and the wonderful stands made by a blacksmith.
Woolkeeper carries designs and kits by other designers as well, such as Jan Mott of Crane Designs and Wooly Lady.
She also carries a nice selection of punch needle.
Isn't this Woolkeeper design wonderful?! I love the use of color and patterned wool. It's a generous sized table runner with the same design at both ends, but I wanted you to see a close up.
I was so struck by this wonderful Winter design, that it took me a while to realize that it was part of a seasonal series of patterns:
Each one so pretty and unique!
Are you familiar with Eweniversity egg patterns?
Woolkeeper carries those too.
Kathleen has offered classes for these in the past
and I am really hoping that she will offer them again.
My fingers are crossed ;)
Kathleen also has offered classes on penny rugs and variations on that theme.
I loved these flower examples and a wool kit for one of the flower pennies is included in my giveaway that is still going on now. You can read about it here.
There is more to come on Woolkeeper! Simply too much put in one post!
Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?
