Sixteens Sample Exchange

I have been a member of the Sixteens sample exchange group since we sent our first effort in 1979. So, I now have hundreds of samples that explore the use of sixteen harnesses in lots of different weave structures. I've included my solutions to the yearly problem.

Studio

My son and I designed my studio and he did most of the construction. I feel so fortunate when I walk into this wonderful space every morning.

Weaving History Research

I rather backed into an interest in history when I
first went to the Hambidge Center in the northeast
Georgia Mountains.  While I was there as an artist, 
I became fascinated by Mary Hambidge and wanted
to learn more about her.  This started me on a
long journey to learn more of weaving history.
