I design patterns for the home weaver using a rigid heddle or 4 harness loom. My weaving patterns are more than just a draft and materials list – they offer contextual and experience-based tips and information to ensure that your project is fun and successful. All patterns are generously illustrated with clear text and step by step instructions.
I regularly work with Gist Yarn to design weaving patterns using their yarn. You can see the Tidal Towels, the Squarish Rug, and Bloom Table Squares on their website.
I also write a how-to series for the Gist blog that covers common weaving questions like how to resize weaving patterns and tips for keeping weaving records. New articles appear monthly.
I am a regular contributor to VÄVMAGASINET. You can find my patterns in Issue 3/2020, Issue 1/2021, and upcoming in Issue 4/2021. The above 4 shaft weaving project uses undyed wool from Linc Farm in the Upper Canada Fibreshed and can be found in 3/2020.
I regularly exhibit my handwoven work in museums, galleries, and have presented at conferences and festivals. An artist statement, materials, and size details are available on individual pages for each artwork – please click on the image to view it. If you’re a curator, organizer, or gallery, please get in touch via email if you’d like further details about any of my work or a copy of my full CV.
