About

Weaver, Spinner and Knitter, all rolled into one

When I was a child of 10, I belonged to a 4-H group which toured nursing homes in Wisconsin, to entertain elderly residents with singing German Folk Songs to them.

Afterwards, we were to be “congenial” and visit with the audience. I wandered over to the corner of a community room where three women were working with some big contraption. They swooped me up and plunked me down on the bench. I was allowed to sit and help bang the beater back as they made rag rugs! That was it,
I was ADDICTED!

This weaving thing made such an impression on me. I went home and drove bunches of nails into a picture frame to make myself a loom. I fondly remember unraveling my brother’s favorite knit sweater to get enough yarn for weaving.

Always a fiber nut, I crocheted and sewed and cross-stitched and crafted all of my young adult life. But it was many years later for those creative weaving seeds to nurture and grow.

I have a marvelous husband to foster and support my creative needs, helping to refurbish my looms and he also builds my necessary weaving stuff!

I have a lovely little studio in a 100 year old stout German Home in a tiny town in Wisconsin. My weaving creations flow off of my looms while I think of what I want to weave next.---- I am —– KarenInTheWoods.
