About Meara:
I learned to weave during my last semester of college. I fell in love with the process and acquired a Schacht Mighty Wolf loom soon after graduation. I’ve been weaving on that lovely loom since 2006. In that time I’ve held many different jobs, married, gone to grad school, and had a baby. But weaving is a constant pleasure and outlet in my life.
I live in beautiful Portland, Oregon with my husband and baby daughter.

What is Weft?
In weaving, everything works on a grid. The “warp” of a woven cloth is made up of vertical threads stretched tight on the loom. The “weft” is made up of horizontal thread that is “thrown” back and forth across the warp to build the fabric. For me, the fun begins after the careful planning of the project and the meticulous work of threading and winding the warp is complete. All that is left after that is the weaver and the rhythm of the weft. I pass the weft deftly from hand to hand over and over in a steady flow and watch the yarn become fabric.
