BatemanKathy Bateman, Platypus Dreams
In 2001 I started Platypus Dreams with the core belief that you can wear silly hats and still be a productive member of society at the same time (commissions welcome)! I also work, teach knitting classes, and design patterns for Hill Country Weavers.
I enjoy knitting, crocheting, and weaving on my rigid heddle loom. In particular I take a special joy in designing patterns that combine techniques (weave+knit, knit+crochet, crochet+weave).

CarmelInga Marie Carmel
I teach beginning weaving and eTextiles, and weave primarily household goods.
I enjoy exploring the boundaries of what a loom can do as much as I enjoy the old Swedish textiles that form my cultural heritage, and so you will find wire, electronics, and straw among the linens.

DoakSandra Doak
I am a weaver and design woven wearables. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kent State University, with a focus in fiber.  I have an interest in all kinds of fiber art, textiles, etc. I like to create new fabric techniques and explore the use of color with plain weave and twill. When I design wearables, I let the woven fabric dictate the wearable design.

JamesPam James
I sell clutches woven from recycled yarns and VCR Tape under the name Fringe Benefits. In 2010 a vest I wove with sock yarn won a prize in a Handwoven Magazine contest.  I primarily weave yardage for clothing. I am interested in using unusual materials which lead me to weave clutches from recycled yarns and VCR Tape.  They are available Artisans Connect in Georgetown.

RobertsonDeborah Robertson
I am a fiber artist working in wool. I “paint” with wool to make felted garments and household items. My greatest work has a spiritual quality. It is a series of shawls inspired by birds from all over the world. I teach wet felting during the winter months and offer courses in two types of hats, as well as purses and scarves.

YarbroughColleen Launer Yarbrough, Heartwoven Designs
I design and create handwoven and nuno felted wearables. Also, I weave yoga blankets from recycled t-shirts.  I sell through my website and at art galleries and shows. Weaving is my passion. I love working with colors and textures more than complex patterns. I started designing clothes at 12 for my Barbie doll, and my passion for designing and weaving fabric continues through today. I prefer natural fibers, such as cotton, silk, alpaca, mohair, wool and bamboo.

I am a weaver and a felter. Love the process of weaving, so I teach warping techniques as well as nunofelting, and computer designing for weaving. I love make cloth for wearables, including loom-formed garments. I occasionally do commissions for weavings and often offer custom weavings to non-profits for silent auctions. Episodically, I weave tapestry. I weave all kinds of things — fabric, towels, curtains, upholstery, scarves, shawls, ribbons and wall art. I like melding felting and weaving and weaving and braiding. Weaving with wire is a new passion. It has potential for melding also — woven jewelry for woven garments.
