I love weaving. It’s such a fun way to play with texture. When weaving wall hangings you can just explore different textural ideas, without worrying about drape or hand of fabric. Without those boundaries, there’s a lot of things that can happen within the cloth. Handspun creative yarns really sing when woven within these pieces.
I’m so excited because I’ve been working with some amazing designers who are writing patterns with and for Jazzturtle Yarns. So often I’m asked, “But what can I DO with it?” that I thought it was time to answer with more than just “Everything!”
Who knew that the boot toppers would be this much of a craze? Well.. I knew.. but that’s another story! This October I had the first pair go to a celebrity!! I’m SO excited!!
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.
Last weekend I had a super fun and inspiring weekend spinning yarn and eating great food (and drinking great wine) with my friend Lexi Boeger, Pluckyfluff, and the lovely ladies at the Atlanta workshop!
I love the Tour De Fleece! Every year I prepare by gathering things I’ve been meaning to spin, but just haven’t gotten around too.. things I’ve dreamed out.. things that I’ve wanted to make happen. I’m offering a shop discount as well for those who are participating!
I love my Local Yarn Shop – DownTown Knits, in Apex NC! Michelle has a beautiful shop with more colors of yarn than the brightest rainbow.. AND she is the only brick and mortar shop that stocks my yarn!!
