A traditional handweaver, living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, weaving rugs, throws, table linens and other items for the home.

I am a traditional handweaver. My heritage is from Scotland and my ancestors were involved in traditional fiber crafts.

All of my products are created solely by me on hand looms using natural fibers of cotton, linen or wool. I use traditional and historic weaving drafts to create my home décor items.

I weave and sell handwoven rag rugs, coverlets and throws, towels, and table linens such as runners and placemats.

Also I do Historical Reproduction weaving by commission, primarily in 100% linen.

All of my handwoven items are utilitarian in nature and meant to be useful and functional.

My work involves the strategic use of fiber and color as well as meticulous attention to details and technique.

I have been weaving for over 30 years and enjoy doing weaving demonstrations and Colonial era re-enactments.
