The blog began eleven years ago, April 20, 2008.

I started it on Blogger before I had any thoughts of ever teaching tapestry much less making weaving my whole career.

I moved the blog to my website years later and though it could use a good going over with an eye to fixing links and making a better tagging system, it is one long glorious song about the joy of making things.

Occasionally someone will write me and say they sat down and read the whole thing from the beginning. I like to think maybe they had the flu and had inexplicably run out of unread books and Harry Potter movies. But maybe it is just the sign of someone who starts a project and decides to see it through to the end. That seems like a trait a tapestry weaver would have. Plus there is a lot of good stuff in there though it is mixed with a lot of goofiness.

Ten years of blogging about tapestry weaving

Ten years of blogging about tapestry weaving

Ten years ago today I started this blog. It hardly feels like that long. It began as a way to encourage myself to focus on tapestry weaving as a vocation while I was still working in health care. Through the blog I've discovered a vibrant community of weavers and people interested in fiber art. This community has been instrumental in my development as an artist and a lover of yarn.

Today I'm a full time artist and educator and I get to spend all day every day working on something related to tapestry weaving.
