About me

I am one of the owners of Weavolution! My husband and I bought Weavolution in 2011 and have been having a great time ever since.
I also participate in medieval re-eanctment (SCA). I love weaving historical textiles and have recently been focus on Medieval complex weaves (damask, taquete and samite)!

My mother taught me to weave when I was about 12. When she passed away she still had my first weaving project and pastel purple and pink scarf. It now decorates my home along with several other projects we wove together and projects I've woven on my own.

Since that first pastel scarf I have developed a love of jewel tones and a wide range of weaving techniques. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I could happily stay home with Lily the Lurcher and weave the day away in my cozy studio. Until then I'll keep earning my living teaching history and regaling my students with lots of weaving related examples!
