My weavings for the past few years have naturally had an emphasis on historical patterns and fibers. I’ve used weaving manuscripts from the 1600s to the 1800s as sources, adapted them to currently available yarns and colors, and then have woven them on my computer interfaced loom. Sometimes I try to weave a cloth that closely resembles what might have appeared in the 1600s. Or, I will take a historical pattern and modify it to suit the new synthetic yarns and colors.
I value the importance of the creative act of weaving a beautiful cloth and treasure the opportunity to maintain and teach some nearly lost technologies.I hope you find something of interest here. You should check back periodically because I will be changing things over time.
