A new year

FA8E81BF-4C61-4086-9815-E187EF28DA2E

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday time, and a peaceful new year. I like to take a little time at the beginning of each year to think about how the year was, and what I want the next year to look like.

As a weaver, I want to make more things – new drafts, new colours, new fibres. I’m going to try to keep the joy right up front with whatever I’m making – it makes me happier, more creative, and I like to think that each  piece might just be infused with  a little bit of that creative passion.

I want to do some traveling, and see what others are weaving. I’d like to make my life and practice more local, more sustainable, deeper. I’d like to collaborate with other makers, maybe. I want to go places, creatively, that I can’t even imagine right now.

And that’s the fun of it, right? I hope for all of you a creative and happy new year, in which we all stretch a little bit and see what happens.

What are your plans for 2018?

  1. My daughter in law will be visiting first week of July. She is a wesver in Kitchener Waterloo. Do you have a studio where you have your looms set up? We live near Yarmouth and would love to come.

    • Hi there! I do have a studio – it’s in my home, but I’m happy to have visitors (with some notice). Would love to hear from you closer to the time of your daughter-in-law’s visit (I lived in Guelph for 7 years – love that area). Why don’t you message or phone me at 902-670-1178 closer to the day, and we can work out a visit. Lots to do in Berwick and area so it’ll be a nice day trip for you.
      Best,
      Joan
