Independent Fibers

Over the summer I can to the realization that I wanted to pursue my love of fibers for a career. So I've start applying for schools and signed up to take Independent Fibers this semester. With my other classes and work, Independent Fibers seemed like the best way to go.

I decided that I need to experiment with color. I usually do blocks of bright colors. No fading, just one color, then another and I feel the need to branch out and try other things. I'm afraid to get too comfortable doing that all the time. I won't grow. I also purchased a book, The Handweaver's Pattern Dictionary, by Anne Dixon. It's pretty amazing. This is all done with a four shaft loom. I had no idea there were even so matter patterns. So I want to experiment with different patterns and colors. Then taking my weaving and making it into practical things, purses, little bags, wraps, towels. Anything really. I'm hoping I'll be good enough to be able to do this for a living.
