My New Studio Name

It is time for a refresh in my weaving studio, new name and new studio surroundings are in the works. My studio name - Thistle Rose Weaving is being retired and I am moving my looms into a brand new hand built barn here on our farm.

Welcome to Farmer's Wife Weaving! My weaving studio is located here on our farm in an Amish built small barn, it is a quiet place to work. Some days classical music softly plays in the background. On other days the sounds of birds chirping or our Scottish Highland cows softly walking outside my studio windows remind me that I am home. The gentle swish of the shuttle and the quiet thump of the loom's beater as each thread is bumped into place while I weave gives me a chance to reflect on the day and my thoughts.

In the studio my work mates are Pepper a black Standard poodle and Jack our three-legged rescue Goldendoodle. Both dogs not only keep the carpet on the floor from flying into space they are also accomplished weaving supervisors with many years of experience under their collars. Standard Poodles and Goldendoodle dogs do not shed which is a plus for a weaver who works with fibers and yarns.

My studio has three looms that are almost always warped with a project that is in the process of being woven. Many bookcases full of weaving books, yarn - lots of yarn, weaving shuttles and collections of various things that catch my fancy and give me inspiration and materials to draw from.

The driving need to create something with my own two hands has always guided me through the learning process of teaching myself to weave. Without access to formal weaving programs I am proud to say I am a self-taught weaver.

Farmer's Wife Weaving is my passion, my delight and a way for me to express and share my love for the traditional arts.

Welcome to my studio.
