Sadie Hawkins and Maw
Hawkins is a hand spinner, weaver, knitter, and crocheter and likes to experiment with felting and other textile related work. She prefers to use natural fibers, sometimes it is necessary to include man-made fibers.
The weaving includes rugs, place mats, table runners, scarves, and shawls. The rugs are primarily re-cycled cotton or wool. She really enjoys the challenge of re-purposing used textiles into “new” functional items.
Hawkins knits, weaves, and crochets hats, scarves, socks, gloves, and mittens and uses their hand spun yarn in some of these items. She also knits and then felts wool hats and embellishes them with hand embroidery. All items are her own original designs.
She will be demonstrating weaving on a small four harness floor loom. She will prepare re-cycled clothing/fabric and then weave it into “hit or miss” rag place mats. She likes to share her love of weaving with others. Both children and adults are welcome to weave on my loom.
