Carole and I recently spent a lovely morning at the home and weaving studio of Elin and her husband Bob. Elin’s studio is lovely and I can picture her many productive hours in such an inviting environment.

These are sample skeins of natural dyes. Elin teaches classes through the Driftless Folk School and at her home studio, in natural dyeing. She is such a fun and energetic woman that I would love to take a class from her.

This is one of Elin’s many beautiful rag rugs, which is what she primarily weaves. I was amazed that she orders her warps pre measured and chained directly from Borgs Vavgarner and Blomqvist/Nordiska Textil-Garne. Who knew?

Thanks Elin for a wonderful day and for sharing your passion for weaving. I happliy add you to my list of friends that keep me inspired.
