About StillwaterWeaving

Sales 153
On Etsy since 2011

I create handwoven household textiles using antique tools.

Textiles have been a focus of my life from my earliest years - my mother taught me to knit clothes for my Barbie doll, and I've been making textiles ever since. I knit, embroider, weave, spin and hook. My career was also focused on textiles - I spent over 30 years as a textile conservator, working with beautiful textiles from all cultures and time periods.

Now I am creating textiles for you. I use only natural fibers, and my designs and weave structures are based on traditional textiles from many cultures. I make these textiles to be used - they are functional as well as beautiful. And I make them to be easy to maintain and to last a long time.

I continue my connection with the past by using antique tools. My loom is about 200 years old, and is worn smooth by the hands of generations of weavers. Virtually every other tool I use is also antique, and using them adds a great feeling of calm and connection to the weaving process.

    I have been a textile conservator for over thirty years, and in the course of my work I've had the chance to see and handle many amazing textiles. This has inspired me to create my own textiles using antique tools.
