Episode 85: Community Based Rigid Heddle Weaving with Amy McKnight

by Sarah Resnick

This week on the podcast Sarah is talking to Amy McKnight.  Amy is a North Carolina based fiber artist and weaver, and she and I first talked for episode 55 of the podcast.  When Sarah found out about Amy’s most recent project traveling around her county to teach weaving and create a public community art project about the threads that bind her community together, She knew she wanted to have her on the podcast again to talk about this process. Comment below to keep the conversation going!
