Weavers and their stories:
There is so much more to weaving than cloth, drafting and looms. What makes weaving come alive for me is to meet and learn about weavers and what inspires them. Every warp has a story, part of that story includes a phase or period of a weaver’s life. Was this an early item, a defining moment or a masterwork? A hundred years from now all that someone may have is the cloth, my hope is to also preserve the weaver’s story.
I like to watch weaving being done and to learn about types of weaving that I may not have a chance to do on my own. I am including images of weaving in the past and the present to give us a more complete picture of weaving around the world performed by homemakers, professionals and industry.
