“The first time I ever sat down at the loom, what was most magical to me was that every inch of the thread runs through your hands before it’s ever woven into a textile. This is before I learned about production weaving, but the way I dress my looms, I use a warping wheel (shown here) which is a different method than a lot of production weavers use. I still touch every part of the thread before it becomes a fabric and I hand thread all of these looms, so there are flaws. But it becomes a design element rather than a flaw. I just love that your hand is imbued in the piece. It’s human. It has life.”
