Recently I’ve gotten a few questions about the tools I use to weave with, and “what’s ON my loom?” I admit I’ve built up quite the collection of cool tools and gagets.
I’m so excited. I’ve been working on this behind the scenes for awhile now, and it’s been quite difficult not spilling the beans!! My SAORI journey has not only lead me down a wonderful road of creative expression, it’s lead me to open my doors as a saori inspired weaving studio!
I hear that old 80’s song in my head.. “It’s been awhiiiiile”. I spent the last 8 weeks not teaching or doing etsy updates by immersing myself in my own creative exploration!
Here it is, already 2015. I am amazed at how fast 2014 flew by.. until I look and see how much “flying” I really did! Wow- I taught in New Zealand, Florida, Atlanta, Maryland, Connecticut, Maine, Chicago, Quebec, Norway, Rhinebeck, SAFF, Texas….. What a year it was!!! And 2015 is already shaping up to be […]
I’m having a hard time believing that it is really November 6!! The summer is gone. The leaves have started to turn and the air is crisp! I’m even a year older! It was a whirlwind of a summer because I taught every month in a different place!
One of the things I love about workshops is the give and take of sharing. I may be there to “teach” but I always walk away having learned something myself. This past month at Dream Come True Farm was no different. This time I went home with inspiration and courage to cut my woven fabric!
I have been planning a trip back to Minnesota for awhile, and I had SO much fun once it happened!! Ten packed days of fiber, weaving, baby goat snuggles and more fiber with the one and only StevenBe!! FiberDivas Unite Indeed!!
I love weaving. It’s such a fun way to play with texture. When weaving wall hangings you can just explore different textural ideas, without worrying about drape or hand of fabric. Without those boundaries, there’s a lot of things that can happen within the cloth. Handspun creative yarns really sing when woven within these pieces.
