Announcement   I create heirloom quality handwoven textiles using luxurious, ecofriendly fibers, and split my studio time between a studio in a renovated mill building in Lowell, Mass. and the beautiful Shaker Historic District that I'm lucky enough to call home. Whenever possible, I source local, organic and/or sustainably grown fibers to use in my work, and my looms are completely person-powered (by me!).

I am happy to work on custom items based on my current designs and do engage in wholesale arrangements. Just contact me and we'll chat about what you'd like me to create for you.

L O V E my scarf! It is perfect. It arrived today and I put it on immediately, and wore it all day. It is soft, lightweight yet warm, and so beautiful. Here on the coast it is easily a year round scarf. The pattern is so rich, and is as beautiful up close as it is from a distance. Kristin was a dream to communicate with and worked with me patiently on my custom request. The colors are awesome together Kristin! Thank you for everything.

About

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

I've been weaving for nearly 14 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 that is a bit of a bear to weave on sometimes, but I love the flexibility that two back beams gives me. Oh, and an 8-shaft LeClerc Voyager table loom for workshops. And an inkle loom. And I'm babysitting a little direct tie-up 4-shaft floor loom for my Guild until it finds a new home. 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, 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 four years ago we moved to Harvard, Massachusetts, and in to 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 hallmarks of my weaving.

    I create all of my work myself, thread by thread, in my home studio in the Harvard Historic Shaker Village. I have been weaving for nearly 14 years - weaving is a labor-intensive, exacting, detail-oriented art, which takes many years to master.
