I am an artist who paints with thread, my chosen tool for my creative process is a loom, and that makes me a weaver. I have been weaving since 1991, mostly for personal satisfaction. I enjoy historical research into the history of weaving, learning about people, looms, and the designs that were in use in the late 1700âs through the mid 1800's. That particular moment is special to me because it is the moment just before the Jacquard loom was invented and the world changed forever. In 2018 I launched the "Weave with me" outreach, a mobile weaving studio. It will be part the demonstration area. Our weaving together is important for many reasons. I get to learn about you and encourage you on your life journey and your weaving with me provides me with joy and a sense of community.
