|What looms do you weave on?|
I weave primarily on 3 AVL looms:
|What year did you start weaving?|
|How did you get into weaving?|
I was a knitter who wanted to learn to spin. And as the only spinners I knew were members of the local weaver’s guild, I started hanging out with a bunch of bad influences who led me into the dark arts of the fiber world!
|Do you specialize in any particular kind of weaving? if so what?|
I am particularly interested in working with breed specific wools and wool blends sourced and processed in the Northeast US. I do a lot of blankets, shawls, scarves and sewing yardage.
|What is your favorite part of weaving?|
For many years, I would have said that throwing the shuttle on the floor loom was the best…that lovely rhythmic whole body movement, like swimming. But now, I like best the threading process. The whole warping process, despite the anxiety of possible errors, is a complex, excitement building, process…like building an elaborate marble or domino run. You set everything up, and then throw the shuttle. Did you make all the right bets? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lo6x4eulY9g
