I have been weaving since the 1970s. I learned the basics of weaving during a summer class at Siena Heights College. I joined the Jackson Handweavers Guild and Michigan League of Handweavers in the 80s. From these two guilds I gained friendships and built skills as my looms and stash increased. I feel fortunate to have had many wonderful workshops from top weavers offered by MLH over theyears. My skills and understanding of weaving increased through the two year studies and the generous sharing of information from the members when I joined Cross Borders Guild in 2011. I feel honored to share some of my weaving in this MLH Virtual Exhibit in 2020-- a most memorable year
