Lynn Wallen

My weaving experience began in 2012 when taking a class at the Chattahoochee Weaver’s Guild in Atlanta, GA.  Soon after, I bought a floor loom, and then another.  I now have five floor looms!  Though we live most of the year in Tennessee, my husband is building us a summerhouse in Alpena and has included a special “loom room” for my pleasure!  I have taken many workshops over the years and love learning new techniques and meeting creative weavers.  Weavers are some of the kindest people!  I enjoy weaving decorative rugs, thirsty towels, and baby blankets for my many grandchildren.  I have recently learned to spin yarn and am trying my hand at basketweaving.
