Off to Midwest Weavers Conference

Tomorrow I’m off to Grinnell, Iowa and Midwest Weavers Conference where I’ll be teaching inkle weaving and patterns and textures on the rigid heddle loom. I always feel like I’m “going home” when I return to the Midwest. I’ll give you a report upon my return. If you will be attending, I hope you’ll track me down and say hello.
