Episode 106: Locally Sourced Hand Weaving with Stephanie Pinerio of Shed Textile Company
This week on the podcast LaChaun is speaking with Stephanie Pinerio of Shed Textile Company. Shed Textile Company focuses on the art of hand weaving and local fibers in New York State. The fibers used in her pieces are hand-sourced locally from farmers, spinners, shearers, dyers, makers, tradesmen, and the countless regional fiber festivals that dot the countryside every year. Each artisanal design is created by hand, beginning with the initial stages of fiber selection to hand warping, dressing the loom, and then woven on traditional wooden floor looms.
