My friend, Amy King, posted yesterday about Community. Our community. THIS community. A Tribe of OUR PEOPLE!!
Sometimes, you can’t express your feelings in mere words. Sometimes, the only thing that can tell a story is spinning it into a yarn. These last couple months of presidential candidate rhetoric has inspired such spinning.
One of the things I try to do as an artist, is constantly push myself and my techniques. I love to “just try this” and “see what happens”. Inspiration is constantly swirling around me, pushing my boundaries.
I’m so excited. I’ve been working on this behind the scenes for awhile now, and it’s been quite difficult not spilling the beans!! My SAORI journey has not only lead me down a wonderful road of creative expression, it’s lead me to open my doors as a saori inspired weaving studio!
One of the things I love about workshops is the give and take of sharing. I may be there to “teach” but I always walk away having learned something myself. This past month at Dream Come True Farm was no different. This time I went home with inspiration and courage to cut my woven fabric!
I know I’m going to have more than a good time when my great friend Lexi Boeger of Pluckyfluff fame comes to town!! I’d just come home from teaching at the Tropical Flordia Weavers Guild annual retreat, but I grabbed the wine, hopped in the car and headed up to Asheville for some good Boeger […]
I’m so excited because just had my big “TV” debut! Yesterday I was in Asheville filming for WLOS ABC Asheville’s news segment called “Craft Corner.
I’m so excited because a wonderful book has just been released called Handspun; New Spins on Traditional Techniques by Lexi Boeger (Pluckyfluff) and you can see one of my FringeSpun yarns as the example of Extreme Tailspinning!
