About Us

Margery Erickson has been a member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen since 1991. She is a Master Artisan in the area of hand weaving and specializes in wearable art. She creates most of her fabric by hand dying warps that are between 20 and 30 yards long and uses bamboo, tencel, cotton chenille and wool yarns.

Her formal education includes a degree in Social Science from Penn State and a Masters degree from Millersville University in Special Education. She has been designing and making clothing since she was 13. In 1990 she took her first weaving class at the Manning’s in East Berlin, PA. Other weaving instruction continued through workshops and home study courses. She believes practice and perseverance helped her become an accomplished weaver.

In addition Margery is an accredited T’ai Chi Chih instructor, and a retired educator.
In her words:

“When I was a teen I enjoyed sewing my own clothes, creating a unique style. In my mid thirties I saw someone weaving fabric. If I could weave I could create my own fabric to sew.

One weaving class, one loom, one yard of fabric… Changed my life!

Fiber for spinning, knitting, and weaving is hand dyed in small quantities. Each color combination is very limited. Some fiber is hand spun into yarn and can be purchased.

Most of the fabric is made from hand dyed, hand woven bamboo, tencel or cotton yarn. Each item is either one of a kind or limited edition. These colorful fabrics are woven for easy care and a soft touch.

We also rescue pre-owned fiber equipment, recondition if needed and make it available for purchase at affordable prices.”
