About

Luxury Handwovens from Handspun Yarns

You might find me in a quiet corner of a cafe, spinning yarn on a drop spindle. Spinning, while the world goes on all around me, is my favorite way to achieve a state of clarity. In addition to a mental re-boot, I get a one-of-a-kind yarn stash ready for use at the loom, a cherished gift from my mother. (I also do some wheel spinning, when I can snatch my dear husband's favorite chair away from him.)

Color, pattern and texture--and their interplay--intrigue me. I work slowly, savoring every part of the design process, and I love adding little surprise elements to each piece. My textiles are deliberately quirky, but special. The plied fringes I like to make are twisted by hand, a minimum of 100 times each, for a secure finish. Every bit of yarn in an m.m. handwoven has traveled through my hands--and been loved--many, many times! See more about my process and the things that inspire me at http://mmhaber.tumblr.com/.

Fiber artist Morna Crites-Moore received one of my scarves as a gift and had this to say: http://www.mornacrites-moore.com/blog/2015/01/01abelatedbrag

I have another shop on Etsy, The Covert Laundry Society, which features vintage items. Please visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/CovertLaundrySociety?ref=s2-header-shopname.

Please visit my shop often. And if you see me in the cafe, stop and chat!

    Owner, Weaver, Spinner

    I began weaving in 1998 when my mother gave me her loom. Ten years later, I bought my first drop spindle; and in 2010, my husband gave me a beautiful spinning wheel. The whole house is my studio, but I dream of having a weaver's cottage out back.
