After retiring about 15 years ago from property management, Kathy began weaving on a Rio Grande loom at a class in New
Mexico. She has made many Rio Grande blankets and rugs (at least 25) on her 4-harness Rio Grande walking loom that adorn the homes of her family. Two of Kathy’s Rio Grande tapestries can
be seen at the Denver Art Museum at its SPUN exhibit.
A few years after learning to weave, she adventured to the Navajo Indian Reservation to learn the Navajo way of weaving
and makes it a yearly commitment to go visit her friends on the Reservation and gain greater insight into Navajo weaving and its traditions. Having portable Navajo style looms makes it easy to
weave the many many rugs she has woven while on the go.
Besides weaving, other interests include spinning on a spinning wheel and Navajo hip spindle, and Plains Indian style beading. She is also a member of Handweaver’s Guild of Boulder and Rocky
Mountain Weaver’s Guild. Two study groups she is involved with are a tapestry weaving study group and a Navajo style weaving study group.
Kathy lives in Lakewood, Colorado, with her husband, two beautiful Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers and her nine looms with an extensive yarn stash. She has three children and three grand
children all of whom she adores.
