First Grade Handwork Kits
by by Ewetopia Fiber Shop
We are excited to partner with Ewetopia Fiber Shop to provide a much requested first grade handwork kit!
The ladies of Ewetopia, Kathryn Ashley-Wright, and Lisa Ashley, have pulled together all the materials needed for the handwork projects in our first grade curriculum package. Excellent quality natural fibers and materials are included. This Kit is perfect if you are new to knitting and fibers, or don't have a well-stocked, local yarn shop in your area. Ewetopia is a natural fit for this venture as their lovely shop is located right here in Viroqua and co-owner, Lisa Ashley, worked closely with us in developing the first grade handwork curriculum, contributing many of handwork projects as well as guidelines and photography.
These kits are available for purchase directly through Ewetopia Fiber Shop. Clicking on the "Buy Kit" Button will take you out of the Christopherus bookstore and directly to the Ewetopia shop.
