So, you already know about the Akerworks Yarn Caddy Kit. Now, we are adding a little twist for you: Introducing the Akerworks Butterfly Kate, designed to fold into itself, making it incredibly easy to pack in a bag and take on any adventure! The Butterfly Kate has a wooden base, a carbon fiber shaft with two angle settings, a nifty pattern holder, and our patent-pending TensiTamer gizmo to keep everything in place and select your desired tension. It's designed either for use with our Yarn Caddy, or as a single shaft Lazy Kate for use with spinning bobbins.

Final project was due last week. Home dec sofa cushion with trapunto. Design is an ancient Persian
drinking vessel with a ram motif. Challenging to copy the Design onto the fabric.
Free motion quilting was not hard, needed to make sure stitch length looked good.
Needed 3 techniques. Did some beading. Threaded a quilted channel with cotton cord for
the 3rd technique.
