Summer has come and gone in a blink of an eye. I guess that's what happens when you embark on long road trips, paint the exterior of the house with only a brush, and handweave nine wall hangings- all in a two month period.
The new handwoven collection is for an exclusive event on One Kings Lane. The popular online marketplace just launched their Artisanal Sales in June, and I was invited to be part of a collaborative event this upcoming week!
Starting at 6pm PST on Monday, September 9th, my wall hangings will be available for purchase here. And I'm thrilled that my collection will be featured alongside the works of some of my favorite fiber artists, including Tanya Aguiniga, whose art I mention in this post.
Some of you may remember that I began weaving after purchasing a vintage miniature loom from the Great Depression era. I love that little loom, but I decided to purchase a larger rigid heddle loom this summer. So now I can create wall hangings two feet wide!

A bigger loom meant a bigger space. So I expanded my work area to another corner of our basement. For now, the space is working out great, but I am sure my loom collection won't stop at two.
This fall, one of my home projects is to build a simple frame loom to weave a rug. I'll post pictures on here once I start the project. To see other weavings I have available for purchase, go to my shop here.
