July 2020 Crafty Time with Jessie featured felt crafts, loom knitting, wood painting, and lots of fun with various Plaid products. I mean, Plaid just keeps sending me the coolest goodies and I LOVE playing with them and sharing them with you. I also really enjoyed the day I learned to use a straight loom knitter because one of you asked how to use it. Keep sending me questions and suggestions so I can be sure to share info YOU want.

It’s Tangi tutorial time! Have you found Tangi yet? It’s Google’s new short form video platform geared to use creative types. How cool is that? I know that my video tutorials tend to get long because I give you all the info I think may help, so on Tangi I share the just-get-to-it versions of my tutorials. I even learned how to make stop-motion videos for Tangi!

Week 14 of Crafty Time with Jessie demonstrated how the only thing constant is change. Things got a little heavy on Wednesday, but sometimes that’s part of life and change and growing. On a lighter note, there was cool embroidery and new crochet and general fiber fun!

Doing the Right Thing - standing against racism by Jessie At Home - Pin 1

Starting several weeks ago various members of the Joy Creators/Stitch Ambassadors for Spinrite/Yarnspirations/Red Heart started sending emails to Spinrite asking them to take a stand against racism and make and implement an actionable plan to ensure inclusion and anti-racism in their company and in those they choose to represent them. These emails fell on deaf ears.

Week 13 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home – It’s OK to not be OK

| Crafts, Video

Week 13 of Crafty Time with Jessie has been a bit of a rough week. I’ve had to remind myself several times that it’s OK to not be OK. Everything will be fine, but sometimes you just have to deal with a cruddy week. Thankfully I have awesome friends who always make things better. And of course, having 12 year olds who still cuddle on the couch with me helps a whole lot as well! Let’s not forget the wonderful stress-relieving powers of crafting. And of course, my lives with all of you have been very  therapeutic as well. Thank you!

Week 12 Crafty Time with Jessie At Home – Wall Hangings and learning through failure

| Crafts, Video

Week 12 of Crafty Time with Jessie has been off-the-wall! OK, I may be feeling a bit punny, but we did make a pretty wall hanging. On Thursday and Friday I also inadvertently demonstrated how sometimes the road to success travels through failure first, and how sometimes I think I know more than I do. You can’t be afraid to make mistakes, just go with it and learn from them!

This has been an intense and important week for the world, and especially the USA. I have continued to hold my daily live videos because of the number of people who have told me it helps them feel less alone. However, I’ve held back a lot of my other posts as I’m taking time to listen, to learn, to grow, and to try to help in this fight against racism and oppression. I hope you will join me in standing with our black brothers and sisters and others along with me. Those of you who we are standing with, you are seen, you are heard, you are loved.

Week 6 of Crafty Time with Jessie has come to an end. This week had sewing skully caps for the local hospital, dyeing yarn, crocheting, and even some embroidery.
