Museums and books

A petition to save a textile museum (and here’s a great deal more info from Katrin): The Textile Museum of Lyon is threatened with closure, which undoubtedly constitutes a major asset catastrophe. The indifference of the city of Lyon and that of the Ministry of Culture and Communication make possible a scenario that remains for […]

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.

Sale!

Interweave has a bunch of stuff on sale for President’s Day, including the Weaver’s Inkle Pattern Directory at $5. I’ve had an e-copy for a while (weaving patterns on the iPad; very convenient), but jumped at the chance to complement it with a physical copy. I bought two; one will show up in the FFF […]

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 […]
