About me

I've been weaving for several years now. I started with a rigid heddle, and then moved into a jack loom. In 2014 I picked up a 20 year old Glimakra counterbalance loom from a rug weaver who sadly had moved into an Alzheimers facility. Margaret immigrated from Sweden and had purchased the loom directly from Sweden to support her family making rugs.

Now that my youngest son is in college I have time to start taking classes and conferences and realized I needed a portable loom and just recently purchased a well used Dorothy table loom on Ebay. This was listed as coming from an estate sale. I love the idea that both of my looms come with a history.

Weaving provides a great antidote to my career as a data analyst and compliments my other hobbies (knitting and quilting).
