At the Studio


Time for change. Sadly, I had to close the studio in Dunedin this month .The studio has been empty since the beginning of COVID - 19 always with the hope of opening in "Just a few more months". But as Covid continues to be an issue , few of us want to be in a closed space  for 6 hrs at a time for weaving class or to share equipment. Parking became an issue and my husband is having some healtth issues. So, it seemed best to follow a different route.  I've moved everything into accessible storage  for now and am building a new,  smaller studio in a building on our property. There I will be able to work one on one with beginners and continue to teach more advanced classes on Zoom as well as work on my own weaving any time of day!


As I write this, we are in our last week of "The Path - Inspired by Sound" class. It has been an interesting journey. Seven students each explored sounds that influenced their woven, painted or stitched projects. We talked about Arvo Perot, Paul Klee,Saint- Sans cycadas, Native American flutes, a barking dog and learned about fresh indigo dyeing ,the Fibanocci series of numbers and textile materials that make sounds as they are approached or touched. I've taught "The Path" class four times in the past year and each time is different and amazing. Some students return for another session, others come for only one, but always their is a deep connection that forms among the participants during those six weeks.


I am going to take a break to recoup from the move and get the new studio built. I expect to start teaching again in January 2022.
I continue to be a dealer for Schacht, Louet, Henry's Attic  and Glimakra equipment / yarns and VAV magazine.

I have been weaving  for over 40 years and have used many different types of looms. Feel free to call or e-mail me  to talk about the right equipment for your needs.   I can have any order drop shipped to your address.

Current students and those with studio cards receive a 10 % discount on all equipment
