My Story
 

I was born in New York City, lived in Westchester and Putnam counties and moved to Delray Beach after retirement.

 

.  I was a knitter since childhood and discovered spinning in my 30’s.  When I found myself wanting to do something more than knit with my ever growing collection of handspun yarns, I studied weaving at The Weaving Center at Marymount College in Tarrytown NY (then known as the Craftskellar) and have been happily weaving ever since. Over the years, I have moved from a 4 harness treadle loom to a 32 harness computer assisted loom.  

Inspiration comes from a variety of sources: the texture and color of a particular yarn, a pattern that I’ve been playing with that suddenly works and designs from nature that I find intriguing.  Finding the interplay of the texture, yarn and pattern often create surprising and pleasing results in the final product.
