Discover Kumihimo – Japanese Braiding

Louise Redgers Bonnycastle is a lifetime crafter. Sewing, quilting, spinning and weaving are her passions. She loves to share her love of making things with others, especially children. She joined the Markham Guild of Village Crafts in Markham in the mid 1980s to learn how to spin and quickly became interested in knitting and weaving handspun yarns. She has taken many classes over the years and learned many new crafts, and feels that it is important to share her knowledge. Currently, as the president of the craft guild, it has become her mission to have guild members try as many new crafts as possible each year. As the mother of six children, there are not many crafts that she has not tried. In the last three years, she has become interested in Japanese braiding, known as Kumihimo, and has found it quite addictive and loves the finished products that make great gifts and are easy to sell.
