Owner at Phaneuf Pharm Weaving and Yarn
Weaving soothes my soul, I can feel the troubles of the day lift when I sit down to weave. The interplay of colors and textures is mesmerizing. Rarely do things turn out exactly as I have them pictured in my head during the planning stages. Some are close and some are way beyond fantastic.
My husband and I bought a piece of land in the country in 1985 and I've began spinning my own wool in the late 80's. I bought a loom on ebay and took up weaving in the late 90's. I worked full time as an electrician, doing Sheep and Wool shows on weekends, and when I retired in 2007 I began my 2nd career as a full time weaver. I have a studio in my home where I have 6 working looms. I weave scarves, shawls, blankets, rugs, towels and table runners. I work with cotton, rayon, bamboo, tencel and wool.
I hope you enjoy wearing and using my handwovens as much as I enjoy creating them.
