Textile Design: Background

One of my earliest childhood memories is playing Legos with my (not so much) older sister on the floor of the “loom room” in our early family home. My mother is an incredible artist, and received her BFA in textiles, weaving, and fiber arts from Saint Mary’s College in South Bend, Indiana. Growing up, I have fond memories of watching her at the loom, weaving baby blankets for family and friends and carefully merging warp and weft yarns together to create exquisite wall-hangings and tapestries.
