About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Fiber Artist
Location Boise, Idaho, United States
Introduction Years ago while I was a college student, I walked through a weaving shop in Boise. Seeing the looms and the handwoven fabric in that shop opened a world to me that had been previously unknown. Who knew that fiber in its many forms-yarn, roving, fabric-could be so addictive?? Many years later I was living in Colorado and fortunate enough to take a beginning weaving class from Dottie Weir. That started my love of handwoven fabric and weaving in all of its forms. Now, years later, I am weaving on two looms in my house and I’ve added spinning to the fiber addiction, along with a love of quilting. My hope is that this blog might inspire someone else to discover the joy of throwing a shuttle, creating yarn, or piecing a quilt in order to create something unique and handmade.
