I have always had a knack for strings… I spent outrageous amounts of time as a child making bracelets, knitting, finger weaving… etc. I even happily spent four hours untangling a horrible 60 yard mess of worsted cotton yarn.

When I began weaving in college on a loom with the one and only Jeanne Steiner, I was hooked. During her summer block at the Colorado College, I wove the periwinkle Tunic on an eight harness Gilmore floor loom. I dyed the cotton, and wove the tunic in three simultaneous layers: the back, the front, and the pockets. In my non-existent free time after the class was over, I dyed the wool for the grey Tunic and wove it in two simultaneous layers. Sleep is a myth.
