Nancy Hedberg

Nancy has been weaving since 1999 when her husband convinced her she needed to learn yet one more thing. Her first weaving class was at Forma in Whitmore Lake. She then met Alice Griswold at an MLH Conference and studied with her for several years, and enthusiastically attended as many MLH workshops as she could in the following years.

The two pieces in the photographs are coordinated for the Boathouse that she and her husband have been updating. 

 

The Throw features a luscious wool and silk ground with Nancy’s handspun wool mohair blend at the intersections of color, woven on six shafts, with shafts 5 & 6 lifting the colored yarns. 34” x 54”

 

The second piece is an upholstery fabric that was inspired by the Weavers Guild of Kalamazoo’s 50th Anniversary Book as well as the various blues and sparkles of light on the lake at the foot of the Boathouse.  The fabric is composed of various sizes of cotton yarns in several colors of blue, lavender, grey, green and bits of silver in the warp, with a 3/2 cotton hand-dyed indigo weft.  Piping is a coordinating Ultrasuede. The back of the pillow sports a commercial jacquard-woven panel found at a regional fabric store…perfect for a boathouse.   15” x 23”
