Balancing the left and right brain

In 7th grade, our sewing teacher uncovered my talent for sewing a straight line. Eventually this line of thread wound itself around most of the clothing I made and wore. In my thirties I discovered weaving provided a new twist. I could actually make the fabric. Over twenty years later I continue to create fabric by dying the yarns and weaving these yarns into shawls, scarves, jackets and accessories.

Part of my brain enjoys calculating the yardage and warping the loom. The other part enjoys the freedom of blending new colors and creating wearable art.

I hope others find weaving and related fiber arts rewarding. To help introduce this craft to new artists I look for used fiber equipment, recondition it and then offer it at affordable prices.
