  • Bond Ultimate sweater machine. They have lots of tips and free lessons on the manufactures pages.

  • From my research it seems the best buy is to buy the deluxe model. It comes with an extension, counter and the attachment to make designs into your knitting.
    You can buy it from the manufacturer, and
    For some of the little extra accessories and little tools you will have to go to Bond the manufacturer.

    Eileen just treated herself for the holidays to a DELUXE ULTIMATE SWEATER MACHINE.

    Shop their store for a full line of Educational and Recreational Jewish software.

    To see general needlecraft lessons and links go to my Needlecraft pages.

    A first for Chadiscrafts, Eileen is asking all of her followers to check out these amazing college students' senior project.
    Yes, these are friends of my sons that attend Maryland Institute College of Art In Baltimore, MD
    But their project is amazing.
    Consider it a crafters tzedakah project!
    They will be taking a stash of fabric scraps from a grandmother, digitizing and making new fabric that they will then sew into clothes and hats.
    Their project is to have 2 full fashion shows.
    Handmade clothes and millinary hats!
    Please look at the video for this amazing kickstarter project.

    Click here "MAmA Said"to go to the kickstarter page for the full description
    Their goal is to raise $1,200 by Feb. 23.
    Every dollar counts! Remember this is a pledge, as with all kickstarter projects, if they do not reach their goal, it costs you nothing. Pledge from $1 to $500.
    Please support these young artists.
    They more than doubled their goal. Thanks to all that supported them.

  • Wire Kippot

    Although not needle crafts like the rest of this page, I wanted to list these with other patterns for yarmulkahs out there on the web.
  • Byado Kippot's wire and bead yarmulkah instructions
    One of the many crafts people selling hand crafted kippot has generously offered instructions for those that want to try one themselves. Of course as what often happens with most crafts, unless you are making many of them, the cost of supplies and tools seems to suggest you are better off buying one of her lovely ones. Especially with a craft like this that has costly materials that can be ruined in your early attempts.

  • Cloth and Paper Yarmulkah patterns
