Today's episode of the Weave podcast is a fascinating interview with Tien Chiu. I have admired Tien’s work for many years, in particular her spectacular use of color. Tien Chiu is an award-winning textile artist and writer who lives and works in the Bay Area. Her weaving has appeared on the cover of Handwoven Magazine, her handwoven wedding dress was part of an exhibit at the American Textile History Museum, and she writes regularly for weaving journals. She is also President of the Board at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.

Great podcast. Thank you Sarah and Tien for sharing this. As a graphic designer I’m having problems with the blending of the colours when I’m weaving. So I started following Tien’s website Warp & Weave. Great source and very helpful.
Greetings from the Netherlands !

Tien’s blog is a treasure and has solved my problems with how I might show off my handspun and handpainted yarn.

Thanks Tien!
