Crafting my way through life
A Soprano's view of life, music, and handcrafts
I'm a longtime weaver who likes to weave fabric for clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf appeared on the cover of the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of Handwoven magazine. I invented the freeform overshot weaving technique with which I wove my Mermaid Scarf. I sell weaving patterns and instructional booklets in my Etsy shop. Visit my Facebook page Lisa Rayner Handwovens. Join my Facebook group Weave Along With Lisa Rayner for weaving instruction and inspiration. You'll also find Lisa Rayner Handwovens on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram. I like complex patterns, hand dyed yarns, high quality fibers and customers who want me to make them something special. I am not a production weaver. All items are custom made.
