In 2007 my son received an old barn loom from his great, great aunt’s estate. It had been in the attic of the garage for decades. He wisely decided to keep it in our home. With the help of our friends, my husband made the missing parts and I learned how to weave. What fun it has been! Since then, I have added more looms to my collection.
Many of my weavings are inspired by travels that my husband and I have taken. It could be a trip abroad visiting a historic site or driving through the Rocky Mountains. This past year one of my handwoven vests was 1 of 30 exhibits chosen for the Northern Colorado Weavers Guild Fiber Celebration in Greeley, CO.
