  • A new PDF weaving pattern will soon be available on my website: the Basic Twill Towels. Geared towards both beginners and confident weavers, it includes four patterns and three pages on how to hack it, with four extra treadlings. Find it for sale in my shop in the next few weeks.

  • For the latest studio news and to be alerted to the publication of the Basic Twill Towels, please subscribe to my studio newsletter – you can also read past ‘issues’ online anytime through that link.

I gratefully acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Chalmers Family Professional Development Projects program.
