Another very enjoyable interview. As a weaver from the “in between generation” – after the 1970s and before the current interest – who wove mostly alone with no internet, it is so great to see and be a part of this current community of weavers. It is also great that Harrisville, a very traditional place, has hired Rachel Snack to bring youth and energy to their company.
