My first weaving experience was in the six grade when I wove placemats for a class party using construction paper. Since then, I have tried many different fiber arts but I kept thinking about weaving. Life, children, lots of moving and a career filled my time.
About 13 years ago I took a weaving class at Halycon in Bath Maine and found that I love the feel of working with a loom to create something. Since then I have attended workshops, lectures and art shows, inspired by other artists to try different styles of weaving.
I was first drawn to rugs while taking a rug weaving class with Jason Collingwood at Harrisville studios in NH. I enjoy making household goods such as rag rugs. I have made many rugs using denim and recycling old sheets. Using your kids old childhood sheets (what to do with old My Little Pony sheets??) makes a wonderful gift to give your grown children. I also enjoy weaving hand towels, coasters, placemats, runners and cozy blankets.
The best part of weaving is the community of weavers that I am lucky enough to be part of. The energy that they bring to my weaving is enormous and treasured.
