I am a yo retired Computer Science teacher and ex Tanner. I love weaving and have taken weaving classes and have been weaving for the last 4 years. I prefer weaving on a rigid heddle loom because it is the most versatile kind of loom. Being a teacher I also love teaching others the joy of weaving with a versatile inexpensive loom as the rigid heddle is. I have weaved kilometers of cloth the last 3 years. I specialize in traditional Samos technics transferred to the Rigid heddle loom. I also do rag rugs and use them for table mats or bags and pouches.
