This week on the podcast, I’m excited to welcome Amy McKnight! Amy is a North Carolina based fiber artist and weaver. I have admired Amy’s work on Instagram for a while, and particularly admire Amy’s passion for spreading the love of weaving on small looms.Comment below to keep the conversation going !

Hi! As a long time weaver of color, it’s good to see more of us out there—I realize that I’m not the “lone stranger” any more! I do wish I could contact Ms. McKnight via email; I don’t “do” social media… I enjoy all the podcasts so keep up the great work!

Hi Sears Karen, the podcast was recorded in February! I mentioned I was going to get a large loom. . . which I did 😁 but there are photos of my small loom and my art work made on office supply looms!

All the best,

Amy

Enjoyed your story but it appears you have a larger or wider rigid heddle loom from the photos. Enjoy your journey and touch as many lives with weaving. It is a wonderful journey.
