On June 25th, we are offering a weaving course for beginners at our farm. Here is a brief autobiography about our instructor Karen Moore.
My first exposure to weaving was a Christmas gift of a pot holder loop loom. I was about 10 years old at the time. In the intervening years I became proficient at sewing, embroidery, counted cross-stitch and needlepoint. I've also completed a number of knitting and crocheting projects.
I took my first weaving lesson in 2010 and haven't looked back. I enjoy every aspect of the weaving process - even the so-called boring bits. I have travelled to Salt Spring Island B.C. to take a one week weaving course on twills with Jane Stafford, attended the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners conference for the first unit of the OHS Weavers Cerrificate.
My weaving projects have used alpaca, cotton and acrylic yarns. My projects include baby blankets, placemats, runners, scarves, shawls and tea towels.
Passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm for weaving to others gives me great pleasure whether it is through workshops, group or private lessons.
The Karen Moore Weaving Studio is now open.
