Meet Our Artisans
Why bother looking for the handmade object when the world is full of cheap goods produced by exploited workers or clever machines? Precisely because the handmade is unique, and to buy a piece of careful craftsmanship is to make a friend in that parallel universe of deeper values. I have sewn and knitted for decades, but weaving is my new obsession. I love the process of seeing colorful thread and yarn turn magically on my needles or my loom into scarves, shawls, and table linens.
