I Can't Stop Thinking About Weaving

I have weaving stuck thoroughly in my mind these days. I'm not finding time to start many projects, or the money to take a class I'm dying to take, but I'm finding a lot of good thngs to read online about weaving. Is there more of it right now or has it become a craft that is coming around in the craft cycle and loads of people are interested in it again?

Franklin is weaving. He's has a couple of weaving posts so far on his Fridays with Franklin series on the Skacel blog and he shows gorgeous weaving photos on his social media regularly.

The was a beautiful article on Mourne Textiles in The Guardian last week. Mourne is a third-generation weaving company that specializes in textiles for the home.

Then there's the story of Kelia McCracken, a northern Minnesota weaver and fashion desginer who, with the help of a Kickstarter, now has a Hattersley Loom. It's the type of loom, designed during the Industrial Revolutuon, that Harris Tweed is woven on. You can follow the journey on the Bare Cloth Facebook page.

Liz Gipson, a.k.a The Yarnworker has a fantastic website and blogall about rigid heddle weaving. She also writes the Get Warped rigid heddle weaving column for Knitty.

Rebecca Mezoff writes my favorite tapestry weaving blog. She writes honestly about creativity and the hard work that goes into being a fiber artist. Her tapestries are beautiful and she teaches online classes. Her class is the one I'm saving my pennies for right now.

And a reminder that I am doing some weaving, Beth and my spinning and weaving blog series on the Schacht blog is still humming along. We posted our fourth entry last week.

Are you weaving? Do you want to? What weaving blogs do you read?
