Maine's natural beauty pairs well with Scandinavian-style textiles and both influence my weaving. I appreciate the look, feel and function of finely crafted textiles in the home and enjoy sharing my work. Colorful dishtowels liven the kitchens of friends and family. Each niece and nephew started life with a handwoven baby blanket. Rag rugs stand sentry at my kitchen sink and welcome guests at the back door and sauna.
I've been weaving for over 25 years and am currently pursuing a Master Weaver Certificate from Olds College in Alberta, Canada. My intent is not only to hone my skills, but to gain a better understanding of how textiles have shaped our personal stories as well as our collective history and our vocabulary.
If you would like to learn to weave, please contact me. I offer in-home instruction on your loom and can provide guidance on winding, beaming and threading a warp as well as weaving.
