Memorial Day Weekend Creative Markets

Woven Goodness!

Fiber LOVE~ 

When sitting down to write this blog post, the thought of writing a post to cover the entire weekend made more sense than writing two posts especially as the connection between the two events is fiber arts even though one is about the weaving workshop in Taos and the other about the Artisan Market on Sundays at the Santa Fe Rail yard's Farmers Market.

Memorial Day Weekend~ 

Both days were a success in terms of having happy weavers and happy visitors.  Having a positive engagement with our audience is vital to our continued development in our relationships.  I so enjoy seeing the joy and satisfaction on my students/visitors faces and count that as my success radar.

Mini Woven Lovelies such as key fobs, mini weaving for Christmas trees/nursery mobile/garden wind dancers. 

Thank you to all who came on Sunday to support our makers community in New Mexico and for my inspiring students who came on Saturday to immerse themselves in weaving fun whilst creating a environment of encouragement and support for each other in our woven adventures.  

Workshop design~

The duration of doing a weaving project can vary from hours to days, weeks, months and sometimes even years.  When determining the duration of a workshop to provide for new learners versus intermediates and advanced, we have to also consider the regions economy.  As a newcomer to the workshop community in America, I hope to share news of my services as a workshop provider for both the hearing and deaf community as well as setting up summer camps where both hearing and deaf can come together to become makers and lifelong friends. 

If interested in weaving and other fiber arts camps for kids for 2019 you can contact Judy at to discuss future ventures.  In the meantime, over the next several months will be playing with potential projects for a weaving book full of ideas for both kids and any individual who love making things for the house and garden.  

Till next time...
