Joanne Manginelli- Weaving

I have had a lifelong addiction to textiles.  As with so many girls my first introduction to weaving was to weave pot holders on a hand loom.  I loved the process  even then, but could only weave on a small scale for lack of space.  There wasn't a lot of room to accommodate a floor loom in a New York apartment.

When my husband and I retired to Prescott, AZ  I finally had an opportunity to learn the art of weaving.  I've been weaving for 19 years now and still feel an excitement each time I sit at my loom and begin to weave a new piece.  There is such a multitude of structures and fibers to work with allowing me to play with colors, patterns and texture.  Always new adventures to explore at my loom.
