Hi, I’m Chris! I live in NW Indiana, about 5 miles from Lake Michigan and an hour from Chicago. Luckily, I took a weaving class while I was working a corporate job in the Chicago suburbs and it was love at first sight. With hardly a backward glance, I quit my job with the intention of weaving all day long. That was in 2008.
After an impressive list of part-time jobs, and lots of experience selling my work at fairs and markets all over the country, I’ve finally found my niche as a weaving instructor who specializes in beginners – my favorite kind of weaver.
As it turns out, I love any conversation that begins with “This is a loom”. I get a thrill out of breaking down the weaving concepts, equipment, and materials into bite-sized pieces and watching a beginner’s face light up when they finally put it all together. My mission in this world is to guide someone from simply being the owner of a loom, to becoming a confident, creative weaver.
