If you love to knit or crochet, or you’d like to learn, the good news is that vision loss doesn’t need to get in your way. With a few tips and tricks, you can create hand-made gifts, garments, and more, for years to come.
In this workshop, we’ll look at some ideas that come in handy when you’re working on a project. If you’re looking for some helpful ideas on finding the supplies that work best for you, check out our workshop on choosing yarn and tools.
Now let’s get started—and let’s begin with lighting. When you’re getting ready to work on any craft project, it’s always helpful to keep good lighting in mind. In the daytime, working near a window lets you take advantage of natural light.
Or you can light up your space with a desk lamp or a floor lamp. Using a lamp with an adjustable arm lets you direct the light where you need it.
Ed Haines: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you. Your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238. Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts, like me. Now, where were we?
