Today was the October meeting of the Weavers Guild of Rochester and we were lucky to have Sarah Fortin come to do a program on shadow weave. I have been an admirer of her work for a long time now. Sarah is a regular contributor to Handwoven Magazine, and recently taught a workshop at EGLFC, Easter Great Lakes Fiber Arts Conference, held at Chatauqua Institution. She graciously modeled one of her gorgeous coats for me and allowed me to photograph her samples. I have always liked shadow weave, but now I LOVE it. The way Sarah adds color to complement the structure makes the pattern look much more complicated than it is. Packets of her drafts were available for $5, a real bargain for guild members. The program was inspiring and the samples are amazing, can't wait to try something in shadow weave!
