Jennye Rebecca

Studio

The fabrics and garments in the Jennye Rebecca line are produced in my home studio in Western North Carolina. I work on a 60 inch wide 16 harness AVL loom which allows a wide variety of weave patterns and structures.

The first step in creating a handwoven wearable, and my favorite step, is selecting the colors and yarns to be used. The threading and tie up of the loom will determine the weave structure and patterns created. The loom is dressed and the weaving begins. After the fabric is woven, it is removed from the loom, washed and cut. I then assemble the pieces and sew them into garments. Finally, embellishments like vintage buttons are added. Although garment styles may be repeated, each piece is one of a kind.
