“Greetings from Texas

A little about myself, I live south of Fort Worth and have been weaving for about 15 years. I have several looms and teach beginning weaving in a local shop. I belong to the Ft. Worth Weaving Guild and Arlington Fiber Guild.

I have been making ornaments similar to the enclosed for about 8 years for all the children in the family and friends. They are easy to mail in cards.

The warp and tie-down are 20/2 and the pattern thread is 10/2 cotton. It is woven in Summer/Winter and use tabby between each pattern shot.

I've had an interest in weaving, looms, yarns and textiles since I was a small child. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, do needlepoint at my mother's knee. My grandmother was a Saami from northern Norway. I am very interested in studying more about tradtional Saami and Finnish style weaving and handicrafts. Paivi Suomi
