My daughter finds those at estate and garage sales and they always sell on ebay. Some people really like those.
I was a latch hookin' fool whenI was a kid! Haven't seen a kit in years....great find!
Ann: Your daughter is a garage-sale-fan too?Blueroc: I haven't seen a kit either. I found the pic on ebay, you can get them pretty inexpensively.
Funny you should mention this... ( yes, this is another early '80's story) My cousin got my sister & I one of these in 1981- needless to say, my mother was picking up small pieces of yarn far into 1982!!
I had one as a kid. One was enough.
Jayne: So you never got into it, then.. remember string art?Lynda: They just seem like they'd take so long. I've only got so much time...
You can still buy them at craft stores like Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's--if you actually want one!One of my kids made one for a "teen living" class (similar to what we once called home-ec). He made a soccer ball. Myself, I had a rainbow in the 70's.
Do I want one??? Hmmm, no, think I'll pass ;^)
We made a zebra one for the family room floor. It was themed "Africa" with red rugs and zebra print furniture. Seriously.
Joe, you're laughing but it's true. My Dad, who was quite the artist, created a MAP of Africa out of wood, painted it red and put white letters spelling "Africa" on the wall above the zebra couch. I may have pics somewhere.
So why did your dad have the fascination with Africa?
He didn't - they thought it was cool....upstairs was China, downstairs was Africa. I guess they were trying to do the open minded" thing. We even had a ceramic zebra.
