Some days we make snowballs out of fluffy cotton yarn…. And some days we don’t!

Shelley to the rescue!


We love weavers of all kinds and we love natural🌱fibers….. Enjoy🌱


May the 4th be with you as you weave and do fiber arts today!

Well hello gorgeous……
…..oh and the weaving project is beautiful too! 😉

Take a look at this beautiful Deflected Double Weave done in Baby Alpaca by our resident professor Heather

Have you ever tried deflected double weave? We’d love to see your projects too 🥰


How do you plan your weaving projects?


The finest of fine linen

Walter and this thousand thread napkin project. It’s one of the most delicate weavings ‘weave’ seen in awhile.. 😉

What’s in your creative wheelhouse?


What do you like/love most about weaving?

For us, sometimes it’s just pattern play….


For some, Rigid Heddles were our first looms at home. 28 seconds of what we know took a little bit longer to tie on this pearl cotton scarf

Ashford Wheels & Looms


This was Alyssa’s first sampler and woven piece at the studio… so creative and just so beautifully done!


Bonnie, like many of us weave from home as well. Isn’t this blanket a refreshing sight to see. Light and yet colorful. It will be a family heirloom we’re sure that will be passed down.

Often times in weaving, not only are we very focused on the process but we also get a great workout! 😉

And another Krokbragd off the loom!
Heather is so amazing at Krokbragd weaving and color selections

This piece will be cut at the distinct color changes and made into bags and other amazing goodness.

What would you make with this beautiful piece?

Bora’s “Double Steps” Rep Weave rug.

Coming in at 27 inches wide, 170 inches long, with 570 woven ends, cascading with hues of greys and soft lavenders

What a beautiful piece!

Krokbragd is a traditional Scandinavian weave, mostly attributed to Swedish and Norwegian weaving traditions. It was especially popular in Norway in the 18th and 19th centuries.

And apparently when you’re done weaving a Krokbragd piece you smile like the sun! Isn’t Carlee’s piece just as radiant as her joyful smile

We all watched this piece come to life every day and couldn’t wait to see it. It’s truly beautiful and wait until you see what she does with it…

(We’ll be sure to post an update)


So this just happened 20 minutes ago fresh off the loom. It’s a one of a kind classic piece from Bora amazing hands. How fun and How beautiful is this peace.

What’s on your Loom today?

Stunning work done by Kathrine!
She personally hand dyed those beautiful hues and then wove them into a luxurious scarf

Don’t you just love the way those colors marry and fade into one another…

Beautiful work from a beautiful soul


It’s spectacular…. Bonnie Hand dyed a tencel (8/2) fiber, and the weft is silk (20/2). It’s super soft.

The design is brilliantly beautiful and a piece that will be loved on for a very long time…

Sometimes we really throw ourselves into our work and sometimes we admire the sunset from afar

Let’s love on Wendy’s beautiful handmade rag rug, which is too beautiful to even call “rag”, but you weavers get it…

Bonnie also created this stunning sunrise sunset rug of which she actually dyed the cloth that she wove with….now that’s something spectacular

Heather and Shelley created a seascape Linen Curtain panels of teals and sea-foam greens.
And yes as always there will be giggles, oohs and aahhh.

What would you create with these colors or fabric?


The giggles and joy is always contagious and wonderful when we see someone’s very first weaving come off the loom! Jennifer did an amazing job and her colors were beautiful…

Let’s catch up on the awesome things at the studio….or sometimes outside the studio

Our lovely founder and host Ms. Bonnie is an amazing dye mixologist and has stretched our creativity into dying fiber for those who attend the Coastal Virginia Weaving studio…

Last October many dyed yarn for the first time and well, it was super fun…
