I have spent the last year gearing up for this moment. The moment I turn my “hobby” into a cottage industry…get it…cottage? Since I live in the Great White North in a cottage? hee hee, I love a good pun.
Most of you followers already know how crafty I am, sewing, knitting and in the last 8 years, weaving and spinning has crept into the lineup of things I love to create with my hands. I come by it honestly, my fraternal grandmother (Baba) was a talented woman who could make a silk purse from a sows ear as the old saying goes. She truly conquered anything she tried, even with the most rudimentary of utensils/tools available. I like to think she is looking down from the heaven above, smiling and proud of what I have become. I am forever grateful to have had her influence in my life.
I have been bitten by the fiber arts bug, rather seriously too, so much so that in 8 years, I have amassed 4 floor looms and 4 spinning wheels along with a plethora of accompanying tools necessary to create the objects of my fancy. Weaving has particularly been a necessity this past year with a Pandemic running rampant across the globe. It is easy to shelter in place amongst my many tools and cones of yarn and let my mind go wild with colour and design.
So the past couple months has seen me create a number of handwovens that I have finally put into a Shop format. I have initially created this Shop over on my Facebook Page, which can be accessed here: https://www.facebook.com/Stormy-Point-FiberArts-129301387126092, but I will also be building a shop here on my Blog that will go in tandem with the Facebook Shop. I will make an announcement when that goes live.
Meanwhile, here is some eye candy for you, varying types of scarves, towels, guitar straps, etc. that I have made and is either currently for sale or will make custom requests. If something tickles your fancy, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
