Linda Hendrickson

On Friday we had the honor of a visit from Linda Hendrickson, in town just prior to your program and workshops she’s giving for the Rocky Mountain Weavers Guild in Denver. Linda’s specialties are split-ply twining and tablet weaving (which some of us call card weaving). It was great fun to be with Linda—her enthusiasm for what she is doing is infectious and her desire to teach and educate a true mission. We played around with cord making—the basis for split-ply twining. Check out her website for more about Linda—she has several self-published instruction and pattern books, as well as instructional videos—which is where she really wants to go, so look for more from this prolific craftsperson. Also check out her YouTube video on “How to Make a Continuous Cord”.
