I love this book. If you're interested in learning how to weave, this is the resource for you. Rachel has mad teaching skills.

This project was adapted from a project featured inside her magical book. The pictures are fabulous! There are tutorials for lots of different woven projects and is a great resource for both seasoned and new weavers. Get a copy and start weaving!

New weaving series

In the last few weeks I've been working on a series fringey, layered weavings. One of my main goals is to make pieces that are still somewhat sizeable, but take less time to create than my usual weavings. The faster I can make them, the cheaper I can sell them. It is so hard to price work that takes hours to create and still make them affordable. It's an ongoing process, but I'm making headway!

These weavings (and many more!) will be available at The Made Fest this fall. Stay tuned for details! 

Weaving

   It feels great to turn this pile of yarn into a beautiful woven wall hanging!

This weaving is a commission for a dear friend, Abby. She always supports her local artist friends! This is one of my favorite weavings so far. The richness of the color is mesmerizing. It was made on my smallest loom and took a handful of hours to make. In this photo, the fringe has not been evened up. I'm excited for the next one!
