Leslie considers herself a life time learner to all things
fiber. She is constantly amazed at the creativity, sharing, and attention to
detail she finds in the fiber arts.
As a functional weaver, Leslie weaves
lots of scarves and shawls. Her weaving knowledge can be attributed
to independent study, The Triangle Weavers Guild, her time at The John
Campbell Folk School and all the weavers she has met along the way.
One of her biggest pleasures is teaching. Through sharing
knowledge of process, materials, and technique, Leslie hopes to foster
creativity and growth through various workshops offered at The Yadkin Valley
Fiber Room and other venues. Leslie’s second passion is dyeing..she loves to create color in yarns and textiles – especially indigo…
Leslie is a member of : The Triangle Weaver’s Guild, The
Mountain Homespun Guild, Tapestry Weaver’s South, The Complex Weaver’s
and Hand Weaver’s Guild of America.
