Were you one of those kids who always had to touch everything?
Yarn, fabric, beads, and buttons have always been my favorite art supplies. You’re supposed to touch them! I’ve got a basket of buttons by my couch, all ready to play with anytime I need a little zoning out.
I grew up sewing, crafting and all that sort of thing, and when I got to college, for some reason, I just knew I had to try out weaving. I felt so at home in the weaving class, I never left. I want to help you find your path, what makes you feel at home with weaving.
I remember a story I once read, in which a young Navajo girl had been blissfully weaving a rug for hours, she described her thoughts as being everywhere… and nowhere. That’s exactly what weaving is like to me. Whether on a big floor loom or a simple lap loom, the beating rhythm is meditative and calming. You can’t help but slow down and relax.
When I taught weaving in community college, people would tell me they wanted to learn, but what would the cost be, just to give it a try? It would be great to learn in a fully equipped studio like I did back in college, but since that probably isn’t an option, I can help you get started in an easy, simple way.
Some people say they haven’t got a creative bone in their body.
Well, no one does since creativity comes from the brain!
Everyone is creative. Some people just haven’t had the chance to show it.
I want to help you find your creative happy place, through weaving and all of the fiber arts.
My free tutorial will get you going without even buying a loom.
I show you how to turn one of those books on your shelf into a simple loom, using easy to find materials you probably already have around the house, and then I guide you through your first weaving project with lots of illustrations to help you understand each step.

I do want to warn you, weaving is addictive.
And you’ll want to try out basketry, dyeing, embroidery, sewing…. You most probably will fall into the black hole of fiber arts, but that’s okay, I’ll be there too!
I’m making my first online course right now, it’s all about weaving with fabric.
And soon I’ll have weaving kits that will get you started on tapestry weaving.
