I have always enjoyed needlework, knitting, sewing, and history. Discovering the Fredericksburg Spinners and Weavers and learning to spin and weave is a great combination of both interests.
Most of my weaving is functional, that I hope also brings some beauty to everyday settings; towels or placemats for the kitchen or some wearable art scarves or shawls for yourself.
