About me

I enjoy trying to convince my looms that wire, straw and electronics are really yarn. I also love to weave linen. I  don't really remember when I learned to weave, my grandmother and mother were both weavers, and there were always looms around. My great-grandfather was a dye-master, and I think I got some of his color sense.  I live and weave in a 1897 Victorian in Austin, Texas with my high schooler son and linguist husband-- and make the occasional summer weaving excursion to Sätergläntan in Sweden.  I'm a recovering Landscape Architect (long story) with a degree from UC Berkeley.  I've been involved with Weavolution since the Alpha testing, and really enjoy my time with it. I moderate 'Wire Sticks and Straw' ,
'eTextiles' and 'Textile Texans'  on Weavolution and am past Vice President, and past Secretary, current Communications Chair of the Weavers and Spinners Society of Austin, my local guild.  I also belong to the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas, Handweavers Guild of America and Complex Weavers. But enough about me…

I teach

Beginning and rigid heddle weaving, traditional Swedish warping techniques, weaving with wire, straw, eTextiles.
