Welcome To My blog--my name is Barb and I am a weaver in a small town in Wisconsin called Dell. Actually it is more of a place than a town but I love living in the middle of nowhere. I am a weaver and my studio name is"COULD HAVE BEEN A PIANO" I always said I was going to learn how to play the piano, but as luck would have it I met a wonderful group of women weavers and was hooked. I have been weaving for three years or so but have been addicted to fiber since I started knitting when I was about 10. I still love to knit and do some spinning and dying as well. I love natural fiber and texture. I like to use thrift store finds and use my imagination.
I wanted to make a set of placemats in back and white in a summer/winter pattern from my favorite "Green" book. Well no matter how ofter I tried, how often I ripped, how often I read the pattern nothing worked. I tried everything at least twice. So I finally decided just to treadle two peddles that gave me a somewhat pretty pattern and be done with it!!!!!!!
