JST 2014 Christmas Edition

JST 2014 Christmas Edition

As we come to the end of 2014, I would like to thank all of our customers and students for another fabulous year. A great deal of learning transpired in our studio over the last 12 months and I hope every student departed with a greater sense of self confidence and that their passion for weaving was fanned into a glowing fire.

I also want to thank my team. It takes a team to create what we do here. So thank-you to Grant, Charlotte, Cheryl, Joni, Kristin, Lorrie, Rosemary, Sandra, and last, but certainly not least, Susan. You are the best!

JST Holiday Hours

We will  be closed from Tuesday, December 23rd until Monday, January 5th, 2015. That means there are still a few more days to fill your stockings with a cone of yarn or two …  maybe even a gift certificate … How about a loom?  Check us out at JST.

Rosemary’s Delectable Recipes

Once again, we are bringing you a holiday treat this season; Rosemary’s much requested scone recipe:



Handwoven’s Teacher of the Year Award

I have had the great honour of being awarded Handwoven’s Teacher of the Year. This would not have happened without your votes, so I sincerely thank you. The award comes with a $500 weaving grant from Ashford and Foxglove Fiber Arts, so a big thank-you to Richard Ashford and Cindy Howard-Gibbons. I am going to forward this grant to my favourite weavers in Jawaja, Rajasthan via the Maiwa Foundation.



We send you heartfelt wishes for good health, happiness, and the wisdom to acknowledge our great riches.


We look forward to working with you in 2015.
