4 years ago if you had mentioned the word “weaving” to me, then there would be a ten minute diatribe on how I must have woven too much in a past life. So I sold the 20″ Flip and moved to Texas. The end.
Two years ago I got back in to weaving, by default, as I took up a post at The Loom Room. My yarn was already there. What I learned in the ten months I was there is that weaving doesn’t have to be political. I was trying to find new ways to look at my hand dyed yarn.
When we opened up Suzoo’s again, the goal was to have someone else run the weaving studio while I focused on the knit and fiber arts world. And then the weaving bug bit me. We had a guest teacher here. We had resources for our weavers, but I wanted to understand weaving from the students end. So I have compiled some rules for my new weavers:
Weaving should be fun. I always stand back in awe with polarity between the splatter painters like me and the by-the-book weavers. Yes, there are rules but you have to learn how to make the loom work for you.
We are hosting a Weavival in Bandera and want you to join us!
