About Us

We live and weave in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.  
Our small town is surrounded by ocean on three sides, mountains on two and we are in the middle of the temperate zone rain forest, so needless to say Mother Nature shows her very best around here.

We have just opened up our new on-line shop and you can visit us at

My goal is to get my "bum on the weaving bench" as often as possible. I love to see huge dust bunnies growing under my loom as the fibres fall from my reed, a sure sign that I'm actively weaving!

My primary focus is to create beautiful and unique fashion accessories and table linens for sale. I also want to test my boundaries and discover how far I can push my abilities and to learn and improve my skills.

I weave using natural and eco-friendly fibres whenever possible and make every attempt to respect my environment in my fibre choices.

I started to weave about 6 years ago; but I have been a weaving assistant for my Mum since I was old enough to tie a bow! I learned to weave by just jumping in and weaving, there wasn’t a plan!

I weave using whatever weave structure strikes my fancy, but I usually end up weaving a scarf! So far I have had lots of successes and a few unintended results, but I have learned that there is a fix for everything!

I am using this blog as a journal to have photos and a written record of my weaving projects. Almost every project that I have done is on this blog!

I just bought a loom and was looking through sites for help on a crammed and spaced project. What a beautiful site you have. I am a fan! I am enjoying looking through the past posts and look forward to reading future entries. Jennifer Stidham, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.

I would like to make a piano keyboard scarf and see that you have one on etsy. I was going to use the handwoven instructions Nov 2011, but it looks like you designed one that is reversible instead of the reverse side being opposite of the front.
I do not see how to search your blog to see if you had any posts about doing yours.
( I'm just learning about blogging and trying to set one up for myself)

Hi there, I just discovered your blog and am in awe of all of of your gorgeous projects! I was hoping to get in touch with you, but I don't see an email address listed on your site! I work for a marketing company which specializes in the yarn industry (knitting, weaving, spinning, crochet, etc.) and would love to chat more about ways to promote your blog with my clients! My email address is stefaniegr(at)stitchcraftmarketing(dot)com, I hope to hear from you!

Great 'balls of chewing gum' - just found your site. Any thoughts about "inlay on transparency" please?

Hi Lynnette! I see the photo of dimity technique you've been woven but I can't find any drafts or an explanation how to weave it. Can you share please? Olena

HI Ngaire and Lynnette, I am interested in finding drafts for paper spots/dropped tabby lace/ dropped weaves. Saw your lovely post from March 2018. Have not been able to locate more info on this structure online, including handwaving.net. Could you share the draft, or direct me to a source for more information on this structure?

Thanks so much!
