Handwoven and Fiber Goodies by Barefootweaver

West Potsdam, New York | 583 Sales

Announcement    Thank you for your patience! I was diagnosed with breast cancer last September and after surgery completed 8 months of chemo and a month of radiation. During that time my creativity was nonexistent. However, I have recovered and have been happily designing and weaving again this summer! Thank you all for your caring! It makes a difference! XOXO

Welcome. I hope you enjoy perusing my new offerings and please feel free to ask me questions.

Update: Celebrating 11 years from pancreatic cancer diagnosis and Whipple surgery! In February 2017 I had surgery for lung cancer which turned out to be pancreatic cancer in the lung and puts me at stage 4. However, I am recovering and weaving and feeling better every day.

In love with fiber!

I have been weaving and selling in North Country (New York State) shops and galleries for 25 years and dyeing threads and fabric since the early 70s. I am totally in love with warps, wefts, textiles and their endless possibilities.

**************************************************************

Update: December 11, 2009 I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. January 6, 2010, I had the Whipple procedure and finished chemotherapy in September, 2010. The cancer was stage II and didn't involve the lymph nodes or surrounding organs. In May of 2016 I had an aortic valve replacement and they found a spot on my lungs. In February 2017 I had the upper right lobe of my lung removed and it turned out to be pancreatic cancer again. I am now stage 4. However I am feeling fine, riding my horse, travelling, weaving, painting and living my life! And every three months I get a CT scan. Here's hoping!

Shop policies

Last updated on September 25, 2018
I hope to make your shopping experience enjoyable and I am committed to selling a finely made and beautiful product. I use a combination of my own hand dyed yarns with novelty threads to create my limited edition, original items. I use only high quality materials in my work. Handweaving can be delicate and should be handled and laundered gently. Care instructions will come with your item. Please be aware that threads can pull if caught on some types of jewelry though normally you can wiggle the thread back into the weave.
