Hello Again.

I’m popping in to let you all know that I’m working on CraftSanity Issue 9 and will be headed to the printer soon. My sincere apologies for the delay. I LOVE working on the magazine and I’ve been twitching for months due to all the interruptions. When I agreed to take on a job advising […]

First off, thank you to those who posted and emailed kind words of encouragement after I expressed frustration in my last post. I’m very grateful for your support and understanding, and happy to report that I seem to have crafted my way out of my funk. Making stuff is such a wonderful way to reduce […]

CraftSanity house is at Maker Faire Detroit this weekend

A quick post from Jennifer’s husband, Jeff, tapped out on an iPad. We made it to Maker Faire Detroit at the Henry Ford Museum and are all set up. Come visit us this weekend inside the museum to meet Jennifer and see the house we built out of looms (we won’t mind if you want […]

Video Highlights of Woven House Earth Day Project

Hello! Here’s the edited video slide show we played for the elementary students who worked on the woven house project at their school assembly last Friday. Enjoy!

WE DID IT! 500+ Kids Helped Me Weave My Dream House!

We did it! We took the lovely squares woven by more than 500 students at my daughters’ elementary school and we fashioned them into a woven house measuring 7 1/2 feet tall. Check it out! The students in grades K-5 thought they were simply weaving a large rug, but I decided to surprise them with […]

Let’s weave together: I’m teaching a new class in Grand Rapids!

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. I may have eaten a few too many Starburst jelly beans (love those!), but I didn’t completely lose control. Today I’m coming to terms with the fact that spring break is over and looking ahead to spring projects on the horizon. I want to let you […]

We Are Makers. This Is What We Do.

It’s way after midnight and I just sat down after a long day of loom building. I’m sleepy and happy that there will be quite a few CraftSanity Looms under trees around the globe this holiday season. While I have barely begun my own holiday preparations, I’ve been shipping out looms as fast as I […]

Gearing Up For The Detroit Urban Craft Fair December 3 and 4

HELLO, everyone! I hope you’re all well and crafting up a storm. I’ve been a bit distracted lately, but I’m being very productive nonetheless. We’re headed to the printer with issue 5 of CraftSanity Magazine on Monday and then I will be picking up my mallet and sander and building as many CraftSanity peg looms […]

Look What My Sister Made…

I’ve been making CraftSanity wooden peg looms for more than two years and I’m thrilled that my little sisters have both recently gotten into weaving. Yippee!!! I just love it when they get into a craft I absolutely love. My youngest sister, Julie, whipped up the bright pot holders above on her 17-peg CraftSanity Loom. Check […]

Inspired To Weave By The People I Teach

I love weaving. And even though I own a floor loom and have tackled complicated weave structures, I always seem to make my way back to simple looms that I can haul along on the road. I love peg looms, potholder looms, knitting looms and weaving on forks, too. I also like to experiment with […]

CraftSanity is Going to FestiBooks this Saturday in Ann Arbor!

Happy Monday, folks! Just popping in to let you locals know that I’ll be joining local authors, publishers and crafters at FestiBooks, a cool event taking place this weekend at Workantile, 118 S. Main, in Ann Arbor. (We’re in the midst of a massive heatwave here in Michigan, so it’s important to note that this […]

Let’s Craft Together! Check Out My Fall Class Schedule

What I enjoy most about art and craft is all the kindred spirits I’ve met along the way. Here’s a list of my upcoming classes. Check it out and maybe our creative paths will cross someday. A special thanks to the kind folks at Lakeshore Sewing and the David D. Hunting YMCA for these new teaching […]

CraftSanity On TV: A Super Fast T-shirt Necklace Tutorial

Soon after launching my loom business last summer I started collecting colorful t-shirts to use in my weaving projects. But every now and then I like to change it up and do a t-shirt refashioning project or some other jersey knit craft. Yesterday I made some t-shirt necklaces with my daughters. This is a fun […]

Rug Weaving: Now That’s It’s Done, I Don’t Want to Step On It Just Yet

This rug has been on my CraftSanity Rug Loom for months. Under normal circumstances, I could kick out one of these darlings in an intense weekend of binge weaving, but I took my sweet time on this one because I’ve been using it as my demo sample at art markets. Woven with torn fabric strips, […]
