Hi! My name is Chris and a long time ago, I was in the corporate world. And it was fine. But one day, I took a weaving class and my vision shifted. I remember saying, “I could do this all day long!”. So, I quit the corporate gig and moved in with family to pursue the goal of becoming a full-time weaver, weaving all day long. That was in 2008.
Since then, I have shared my passion with thousands of people through over a decade of weaving demonstrations. I have taught folks the easy, simple way to dress a loom and weave a project.
My company, Acton Creative, has evolved quite a bit since its start in ‘08. Originally, the goal was to create handwoven handbags in a variety of sizes. Then, we expanded into homegoods – towels, runners, and pillows. The most current iteration of Acton Creative includes an educational component, lending guidance and encouragement to beginning weavers everywhere.
