About

I run pidge pidge out of a cozy apartment with my grumpy cat, Pigeon. My vintage floor loom and I are sandwiched between my sewing machine and more yarn than one person should probably own.

❖ ❖ ❖

How did pidge pidge begin?

I took all the fibers electives I could sign up for in college and spent the summer after graduation in the studio, weaving for hours every day. I thank my weaving teacher and mentor for giving me the freedom to explore my craft and go wild with color!

It took 5 years of less than ideal jobs to get that final push. I helped a friend at a Renegade craft show, came back with loads of inspiration, and started my business!

Where does the name pidge pidge come from?

I have a beautiful, chubby she-devil cat named Pidge (short for pigeon). Pidge is spoiled by one, detested by many. Her diva ways make her fun company and an excellent model for the dozens of photos I snap each week, but keep all of our friends and family at a safe distance. What a major grump!
