11am-5:30pm

Downtown Ann Arbor District Library

Tiny Expo is an annual holiday fair that features over 40 artists and crafters selling handmade wares in a festive library space. This year  Tiny Expo is a part of the 2nd annual Winter Art Tour. There are 10 art shows in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti featuring over 300 artists during the weekend of Dec 8-10. When you get your official passport stamped at 4 of the 9 locations you can enter to win handcrafted prizes.

Here’s a peek of some of the items you will find at our Tiny Expo exhibit!

 

Taeko

Taeko and I met one year ago at a Weaving Lecture presented by Marion Marzolf.  Soon after we gathered for tea to talk about weaving, our lives, and our love of all things beautiful.  Since then we’ve come together to create designs, warp  five different looms,  experiment, sample, encourage, weave, laugh and cry together at the looms.  We celebrate a year of  joy and inspiration with our exhibit at Tiny Expo.

 

Taeko wove this beautiful Smålandsväv scarf in September.  We set the loom up together in the spring with a warp long enough to weave several scarves – see April 2017  for more details.

 

The Studio

Two large Swedish Glimåkra looms, along with equipment and materials in one room of the house means we are working in pretty tight quarters.  The three smaller looms we are weaving on, along with our sewing machines and work tables are found in other rooms in our two homes.  When we bump into walls and looms or need to squeeze loom parts in carefully so not to break a window we laugh and say “two looms, small room”.  Try saying that quickly several times and you’ll be laughing too.

 

 

Tammy

I created this blog almost two years ago as my weaving journey at Vävstuga’s 16 week Väv Immersion class began.  You are invited to stroll through these pages and peek into my time at the loom and in life.  It’s called Tammy Weaves.  When I weave, I feel completely Tammy.

  1. How nice that you have a weaving partner! I love that my husband weaves, too, and can give me a hand with things or just help solve problems as they arise. You and Taeko must be good friends, to co-exist in that tight space. All the best at your Expo!

    1. Hi Kerry, I am happy to have a weaving partner and am creating friendships with several other weavers as well. I loved being at Vavstuga with many weaving at the same time. Having Taeko here to work with and help one another out has been fabulous. And I still (not so secretly) hope someday Dan might want to work alongside of me.
