Learning and exploring new colors and patterns through weaving

Martha has been playing with fabric since her mom taught her how to sew as a kid. She watched her as she explored embroidery, crochet, rug hooking, decoupage, and just about anything else people were doing in the 1970’s. Now she’s a weaver. She still loves learning and exploring new colors and patterns, so most of her items are one of a kind.

Martha

I’m Martha. I’ve been playing with fabric since my mom taught me how to sew as a kid. I watched her as she explored embroidery, crochet, rug hooking, decoupage, and just about anything else people were doing in the 1970’s. I started a lot of those projects, and did better at some than others. Remember wooden purses? I did that.

Now I’m a weaver. I still love learning and exploring new colors and patterns, so most of my items are one of a kind. I also sew, practice aikido, and rescue cats.

Setting up a loom

I get a lot of questions about how long it takes to weave an item. The answer is always, “it depends.” Part of the reason is that there is so much setup before I start weaving. Here is a short video that shows the last three steps before I began weaving the “Use It Up“ towels – threading the heddles, sleying the reed, and tying on the warp threads.
