Late Fall at the Studio

Pile of cut scarves ready for hemming. We use a vintage straight stitcher made by Singer in the 60's, not a fancy machine but a real workhorse!

Laundered warps hanging out to dry. We've had a mild winter and the ramp railings provide a good clothesline.
Here is one of our latest scarves- vibrant colors for fall and winter.
This one would look gorgeous on camel, grey, black, or navy coat. Magenta and topaz checks woven with a little bit of citron green.
In soft drapey rayon chenille.

Happy Summer!

Getting ready for the summer crowds in Saratoga who spend alot of time outdoors in the evening at our fabulous SPAC outdoor ampitheatre or on the patios of our fabulous restaurants. We have the perfect accessory for cool summer evenings- a lacy shawl handwoven of bamboo fiber in a luscious pink and taupe combination.  I was pressing it and realized the reason we all love this color so-  it reminds us of neapolitan ice cream, where the strawberry and chocolate and vanilla all melt together soft and creamy.  Happy Summer everyone!

New Year in New York!

A roll of rayon chenille plaid scarf warp fresh off the loom. After the roll is laundered, it's cut and sewn into several scarves. This one will brighten up a dark winter day!

Three different weaves in three different fibers- merino/tencel, alpaca, and bamboo.

We started our new year designing samples for the New York Gift show which opened the end of January. Jeri, Morgan, and I wove warp after warp, changing fills for each new colorway, experimenting with a new merino/tencel yarn, and playing with pattern formats and sizes. It was a challenge to produce several new scarf lines in a month. Here's one collection at the show featuring parts of 3 different collections all in bamboo fiber.
