Being a member of Complex Weavers gives me the support to explore different areas of weaving and get feed back from some wonderful weavers who live all over the world. This year for the Complex Weavers Samples the Old Fashion Way, I am exploring Dimity.

In April 2007 I was honored to receive the Mearl K. Gable II Memorial Grant from HGA where I used the grant to attend the John C. Campbell Folk School in NC. The class I took was 18th Century Textiles with Barbara Miller and Pam Howard.  Of the different weave structures I was introduced to, Dimity was one I had never even heard of.  The version I was introduced to was from the Hargrove collection. It is a six shaft weave.

I have used Bambu in both warp and weft.
