Sneak peek

Tablet weaving tour: time, space, structure. I’m never going to have everything, but I’ve made a very good start. Don’t you wish you were coming to Albuquerque? PS. If you’re interested, there’s a roundup of recent non-textile publications here.

A new decade

I’ve been notably absent, but I can finally tell you a bit about one of the things that’s been taking up the word quota.

And, let’s see… I was in New Hampshire most of last week, then came home and spent the weekend building bookshelves and […]
