Creating Beautiful, Timeless Cloth, One Shuttle Toss at a Time

I've been weaving for nearly 20 years (time flies!) - I purchased my first loom from Harrisville Designs in New Hampshire as a kit, built it over a rare weekend off from my former job as an attorney, wove some really horrible dish towels as my first project, and haven't looked back since.

I now weave on my original little loom and have collected a couple more along the way, as weavers are wont to do. (For those who are curious, I also have a second-hand 12-shaft LeClerc Colonial that weaves like a dream, and a second-hand 16-shaft Macomber with double back beams. And an 8-shaft LeClerc Voyager table loom for workshops. And an inkle loom. And three tapestry looms from Mirrix. See what I mean? They tend to multiply.)

My work has improved considerably since I made those first dish towels. And since starting to sell my work in 2006, I've sold hundreds of items through local juried craft shows, galleries around New England, the Fruitlands Museum Shop, the deCordova Museum Shop, Open Studios at my studio building, and, thanks to Etsy, have shipped my work across the USA and the globe. I'm also active in my local weaving guilds, teach workshops related to weaving at various guilds around New England, and am a member of the Handweavers' Guild of America and Complex Weavers. And my work has been published in Handwoven Magazine.

About eight years ago we moved to Harvard, Massachusetts, and into the midst of the second-oldest Shaker settlement in the United States. The Shaker houses are private homes now, but the scenery and architecture that I am surrounded by still take my breath away on a daily basis. I try to use that beauty to inspire my work - clean lines, interesting color combinations, and timeless design are the hallmarks of my weaving.

    I am single-maker artisan, so I design, weave and finish all of my work myself. I've been weaving for nearly 20 years - weaving is an exacting art, and is only perfected after many years.
