Kathy Reid's Profile
I have been wheat weaving for about 30 years, since I saw a picture on the cover of a craft magazine. I fell in love!
Through the article in the mag, I found the National Association of Wheat Weavers, then later the California Wheat Weavers Guild, and growers who grow a portion of their crop for weavers and floral artists.
Once I gained confidence I started selling at craft shows, and in galleries and gift shops. At one local shop I've sold over 2500 individual pieces.
The quetions most often asked about my weaving are:
Do you grow your own wheat? Nope, I order it from North Dakota.
How did you learn to do that? I am mostly self taught, starting with that first magazine article, but mostly using a book that I call my wheat…
