Handwoven lace and lavender sachets

Handwoven lace and lavender sachets

The calendar seems to be set at warp speed this year (HAHA! Did you weavers get my little weaving pun?) and soon it will be February. St. Valentine's Day is just a couple of weeks away. I love to tuck these little handwoven lace sachets into my dresser drawers and into our sweater chest, where [...]

Summer and Winter in the winter

Summer and Winter in the winter

Summer and winter is becoming one of my favorite weaving structures. It is a two shuttle weave (unless you turn your draft, but that is a topic for another day).

Happy November. It has been a very busy Fall. I scheduled a number of art shows this year, many of which were out of state and involved significant travel. Some of my events were at new venues, such as The American Craftsmen Show in Ridgefield, CT, and some took place closer to home. I've come [...]
