I'm a weaver, dyer, occasional spinner and "free-range seamstress" who loves painted warps, collapse techniques, and extended parallel threadings -- all to make colorful, textured cloth used in garments for teaching, shows and sales. My pieces have been juried into the HGA Convergence fashion shows since 2008. About 20 years ago I started teaching at the Weaving and Fiber Arts Center here in Rochester, NY, and now I also teach at conferences and guilds in Canada and the United States.
Working out of my home, I weave on a 16-shaft Toika compu-dobby loom, a 12-shaft Macomber jack loom, a 16-shaft Germaine table loom and a 12-shaft LeClerc table loom. In addition, I like to travel with my 8-shaft Structo: Just take down the castle, put it in a suitcase, and I'm good to go.
