V ä v a! V e v e! weaving cloth one thread at a time
Friday, March 30, 2012
Goodness! It's been waaaaay too long since I last posted. Inhale . . . So, lots has happened in the last year. I have moved my studio, started working with retailers, set up a yarn business, added designs to my line, sent my son off to Kuwait, and my daughter to Europe! Pant! Pant! Wheeze! For those of you looking to respond to my plea for production weaving help through the Weavers Guild of MN, please go to my website www.vavaveve.com if you want to get an idea of who I am and what I do, then email me by clicking on the 'Contact Us' tab on my website. Thank you for your help!!
I was a Certified Interior Designer, designing corporate and commercial facilities for the past 30 years. I retired after owning my own design firm for about 15 of those 30 years. While designing interiors I had many opportunities to examine luscious textiles in detail. The fabrics today are so incredible, using all kinds of materials, from plastics to metal, to achieve a look and function; while color application has reached new heights. Very inspiring stuff! Being the right brainer that I am, I thought, “I could do that. . .” So I turned Hand Weaver and continue to pursue my passion in textiles. The future always holds something wonderful, and that's where I'm heading.
