Appalachian
Research
Weaving
Beginning in the late
1980s, I started to
research weaving
activities, settlement
schools, and the
Appalachian Craft
Revival in the
southern mountains.
Over my life as a
craftspeorson, I have taken
an active role in several
crafts organizations.

I have served as a
short-term crafts
development consultant in a
dozen countries on four
continents through USAID
funded agencies.
Since the early 1960s,
I have identified myself
as a weaver.  I've
exhibited my work
nationally in juried and
invitational shows and
had many one-person
shows.
