I learnt to weave in the 1980s when I was living and working in California, but only in the last 5 years have I become a dedicated weaver. My main interest is in the various lace weaves using fine cotton fibres, linen and silk. I also enjoy using fine wool/silk blends for their cosy draping effect. In California I learnt the art of Navajo spinning and weaving - a great contrast to the lace, yet equally fascinating.
Currently I am the programme co-ordinator for the Devon Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers, and treasurer of Devon Weavers Workshop.
