Episode 73: A Rigid Heddle Weaving Collaboration with Liz Gipson

by Sarah Resnick

This week on the podcast, Sarah is thrilled to welcome Liz Gipson back on! Liz is a well known and beloved weaver, author, the founder of Yarnworker.com, and rigid heddle teacher extraordinaire. I first had her on the podcast about a year ago, and after that conversation we got to scheming about a collaboration a Weaver's PlayBox that is filled with yarn, project inspiration, and helpful tips created especially for rigid heddle weavers. On today’s episode we’re going to dive more into Liz’s weaving and teaching journey, what new project’s she’s up to, and all about her design process for the PlayBox. Comment below to keep the conversation going!

could you use a woven towel for an “unpaper” towel? I’m trying to limit my paper towel use.

thank you SO much for this podcast with Liz. every so often, i need to hear that “you never outgrow a rigid heddle loom.” without the support of you & Liz, i might never have tried the hand towels that are selling like crazy using your Duet yarn. thanks, Sarah!
