Another part of me

  • I first want to say I owe a lot to Rebecca Mezoff and Christabel Balfour’s posts on the subject. In their posts, they pointed at tapestry looms you can find in the US and England. This article is about high warp tapestry looms one can find in France, and what I learnt about them. We … Continue reading High warp looms Métiers à tisser de haute-lisse

Life is short, we’re getting older” (Fred Astaire), and before it’s too late, I want to reconnect with what I always liked, and wanted to study and share: making textiles, textures and jewels. So here I am, and this blog will be a piece of the sharing part. I will try to post weekly, on what I do, but also on textiles I love, blogs I discover, books I read.

I bet I will struggle with technology, (it’s my first blog) and with English, which is not my mother tongue. I made the choice of English because the online weaving community is mostly English speaking .

Et pour vous, mes amis français, un résumé de tout ça : la vie est courte, et il y a des tas de choses que j’ai envie de faire et de partager, alors je me lance dans ce blog, on verra bien.
