Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    I have been a weaver for over 30 years and my "studio" is on a beautiful lake. While I primarily do handwovens, I also love to do kumihimo which is Japanese braiding. I love a challenge that helps me explore new techniques and push my skills into new areas. I am living my dream of focussing on my creative interests after retiring last year. I take pride in the work I do and hope you enjoy my efforts. My goal is to pay for my "habit" and have fun doing it!

On Etsy since 2011

The love of fibre and the intricacies of pattern

I have always been crafty. As I was growing up in western Canada, I learned to sew and knit from my mother. Then as a new wife, we moved to eastern Canada about 32 years ago and I discovered weaving. Since then I have delighted in learning the infinite possibilities for design using beautiful yarns and a rainbow of colours. After retiring from my position as an academic librarian, I am now able to indulge and explore to my heart's content.

I learned early on that my enjoyment of weaving was enhanced by the appreciation that was expressed by those who purchased my creations. Joining Etsy has provided a wonderful venue for connecting with people from all over the world.

My goal is to create unique one-of-a-kind pieces that will be enjoyed by those who appreciate the thought, effort and creativity that goes into a handmade item.
