Mary Underwood keeps busy with production weaving for her business Front Porch Textiles. Her focus is functional textiles from natural fibers. She researches textile traditions in Quebec and Mongolia and lectures about these. Teaching remains an activity and she does workshops on spinning and select weaving techniques that relate to her research.
