Welcome to a weaving studio where there are no mistakes, you learn , have fun, and create beautiful fiber arts with out ever  having to have woven before .

She had such a good time making two vests she came back and made two more simplier vests  for gifts! isn't her hand woven  Saori fabric amazing?

let the sun into your hearts

Peace through fibers
