Upcoming classes

Look at that! A great heap of new frame looms! Those are part of my preparations for the Fiber ArtsFest to be held in Huntingdon, PA, on September 18 and 19. What am I teaching? This! And this! And this! And this! Look like fun? You still have time to sign up for classes.

Sticks and string

In the distant future: I just submitted four class proposals for the PA Fiber ArtsFest in September. I taught at the first one two years ago, and was on the schedule for last year but had to cancel for health reasons. I hope they let me come back; I haven’t been teaching nearly enough. Proposal […]

Fiber arts fun

I have a whole list of things I want to work on, but that’s all it is, is a list. No actual working-on, except on my mindless shawl knitting. That’s okay, and I’m not going to fuss about it. (Much; you know me, there’s bound to be some fussing about lack of productivity, no matter […]

Weaving class May 25

Exciting news: the nearby town of Huntingdon, PA is trying to start a Fiber ArtsFest! It will be May 25, 2013, on the campus of Juniata College in Huntingdon. I’ll be teaching a four-hour tablet-weaving class in the afternoon, “Card Weaving for Anyone.” (I offered to send them a photo without the dangling threads, honest. […]

What goes in my weaving class?

I mentioned on a tablet weaving mailing list that I was teaching a five-day tablet weaving and sprang class. One of the readers asked what on earth goes into a five-day class, so I thought I’d post my outline. This could be a two-day class with experienced and knowledgeable participants, or a full five-day class […]

Teaching dates

Got some time this summer? Want to play with string? Have I got things for you! Registration is now open for Peters Valley Craft Center’s summer workshops. I asked if I could come back outside of hurricane season, so I could experience the joys of having power and running water. I’m teaching a combined tablet […]

Event wrap-up and new toy

F^n was this past weekend. This was the eighth year for this SCA fiber arts symposium, and the first time under new management. All went very well, though there were some glitches – only to be expected when switching event staff. (It started out as FFF – Fiber, Fabric and Fighting – and has added […]


All of the paperwork side of the textile symposium is taken care of – class scheduling, program book, the various signs and forms and sheets that need to be prepared. Now there’s just the cooking for 100 for the weekend part… the dishes that have been in storage have been washed, the bread ordered, the […]

Complex Weavers

The latest Complex Weavers Journal was in my mail yesterday, complete with the program and registration for the 2010 seminar, with my name in it! This is very exciting – I’ve been teaching for a long time, but this is my first time as instructor at a national conference. You should all come! The seminar […]

New goodies online

The snow is gone, and we’re back to a normal, even warm, Pennsylvania autumn. Yesterday I spent reading novels and watching it snow, but today has been nicely productive. My presentation from Textilforum is now available online as a web-based slide show or a black-and-white PDF. No idea why the latter isn’t in color – […]
