SPOTLIGHT FOR COTTON SPINNERS & WEAVERS

 


One of the greatest joys in teaching is the students and friends I meet all over the world. I feel truly blessed to be able to connect with so many wonderful individuals through the love of cotton spinning. Thanks to technology, I can also have students I have never met in person, but who generously share their thoughts and work with me via email after watching my videos. This gallery showcases some of the work of all these different people. Thank you to all who have contributed work to inspire others in their fiber journey!

These stunning garments were all done on either a charkha or takli - they demonstrate how sophisticated hand-spun cotton can be! Kristen did a superb job in the creation of these pieces!
