I ran across a scarf I made in my first weaving class in college. I will always cherish it because I remember how much time and effort it took to create it. It’s like seeing an old friend after many years. ❤️
Tanya Aguiñiga is having her residency at @madmuseum starting today until Friday from 1-5 pm! The residency will consist of a collaboration between herself and weavers Bianca Dominguez, Marcelle St. Bernard and Sonia Kim, "Performance Crafting: Backstrap Weaving" will transform MAD’s lobby staircase into a backstrap loom. The performance is inspired by Tanya’s previous performance pieces, including her collaboration with AMBOS team member Jackie Amezquita last year in Arizona, where they created a weaving in collaboration through the border fence.
Finally got around to using those gorgeous gold hoops from @niromastudio and the lovely blue chiffon from @honeysilksco 🙌🏻 It wasn’t until I was editing this picture that I realized this weaving very closely resembles a wave (Tuesday afternoon brain fog over here🤦🏼♀️) this weave was such a challenge for me, I haven’t woven something in a while and not to mention these hoops aren’t the easiest thing to warp. But the results were worth the effort 😍 #weaverfever
This sounds cheesy🧀... but I call this the engagement weave. I actually started this little lady two weeks ago during our road trip and have been slowly working on it here and there since. Big life changes are wonderful and exciting but man have they kept us busy! It was nice to get back into the groove of things and finish this baby today. Now it's time to start dreaming about weddings and weavings and other happy things.🌻
I’m so excited to be weaving two rag carpet reproductions for @montinnto ....and to be doing it in such a historically authentic way. Not only are the carpets being hand woven, the customer, Montgomery’s Inn is taking a role as a customer/producer. In 19th century Ontario customers would join the strips of cloth together for the weaver. [ ]
Visit the amazing Montgomery’s Inn in the next two weeks and take part in this wonderful part of Ontario ‘s textile history.[ ]

Get INNvolved! For the next two weeks the Inn is inviting the public to lend a hand in our re-restoration project.
Join us Wed July 18th and Wed July 25th during the #farmersmarket to help us join together strips of fabric for our new Travellers' Sitting Room. No experience necessary!! Once we have assembled enough strips they will be sent off to @upper_canada_weaving to be transformed into the final product.
Hope to see you there!
