Announcement   What makes handwoven things special? There is a unique beauty to handmade, handwoven items. Handwoven cloth has a wonderful combination of texture and pattern. I start with quality yarn or thread, most of which is made of natural fibers like cotton, linen, wool, silk, rayon, or tencel. Many of the patterns I use have been around for centuries; mix that with modern yarn and you have heirloom quality pieces for today's world.

Check out my slide show of the steps it takes to warp a loom.

This blanket is the perfect size and weight for my toddler. I love it so much I have bought two. I washed cold and tumble dryed on low and there was no shrinkage, pulls or fading. The quality is superb!

About

Weaving is not a lost art, it is just more obscure than it used to be.

I learned to embroider before I learned to write. I have done all kinds of needlework and learning to make cloth seemed like the next step.

Learning to weave has kept me busy. It is impossible to learn everything there is to know about weaving. There are too many weave structures and fibers to explore.

There are two types of weavers. The "color/texture" weavers love bright yarns and usually weave them up using simple weave structures that show off the yarn. "Pattern/structure" weavers love the patterns that can be created with complex weave structures. I am a "pattern/structure" weaver for the most part. Once in a while I play with color and textured yarns, but it is the weave structure that draws me. Of course color is important there too, but to a lesser extent than the pattern.

    I have been weaving since 1997. I love using patterns published in the 1700's. Who knows how long weavers have been using them before they were printed in books.

Products you find here are not mass produced. There will never be hundreds of the same scarf woven by me. Handwovens are a wonderful way of expressing your individuality.

Few things in this mechanized world reflect the caring that is put into making and selecting a handwoven gift. Giving someone you love a specially selected gift reflects the time taken by the gift giver to find such a unique piece of wearable art.

If you have a baby shower coming up for a close friend or relative, tell them how important the new arrival is with a handwoven baby blanket. Warm up the loved one who is always chilly with a handwoven wool throw or show the lady in your life how much class you think she has with an elegant silk scarf.

My home is smoke and pet free for those people with allergies.
