Jane is that rare combination: an extraordinary weaver with an incredible depth of knowledge, and also a wonderful teacher who respects her students at whatever stage they may be. I’ve taken several workshops from her, but I live quite far away from her studio; I can hardly wait to have access to her wisdom online.
