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.

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 […]


Linda Hendrickson has generously shared a video tour of her studio. She’s enormously more productive and better organized than I am; I may be a little bit jealous.

Today’s Miscellany

I have a new tablet weaving gallery on Flickr. This medieval manuscript repaired with needle lace made me think of Laura, but I expect more of you are interested. I’ve added a Workshop and Classes listing to the tabs above. Nick sent me this lovely manuscript illumination. The boxer continues goofy. The kittens continue ferocious.

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. […]

So many things

First and most exciting: Ancient Textiles, Modern Science is available for pre-order from Oxbow Books/David Brown Books (here’s the UK link). The European Textile Forum was founded as an annual meeting for academics, craftspeople, re-enactors and enthusiasts to share their experiences and compare notes. With varied day workshops and evening lectures, the ‘Textilforum’ has something […]

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 […]

A tiny intersection

I use the statistical software language R extensively at work: all my data analysis and graphing is done in R. I have a couple of software packages in the R archive, and have published peer-reviewed papers on those R packages. And so everything starts to look like a nail… I’m working on a project that […]

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 […]
