Over forty years ago Lynda was a production weaver and spinner living rurally in the Upper Squamish Valley. For ten years she wove a multitude of clothing, blankets, pillows, wall hangings and many other creations, which she sold to specialty stores and and participated in the newly emerging craft faire market scene.
Lynda took a couple of decade’s hiatus and pursued other endeavours that she pursued with enthusiasm. She always planned on returning to weaving on her ‘retirement’ and as she re-entred into this creative world again, she discovered a new universe had emerged!
Her unearthing of new techniques began when she attended a spinning retreat in a
monastery, where she met spinners who were doing things that did not exist decades ago. She now attends every year and spins morning, noon and night with inspirational spinners from all over the province. She spins her yarns for her weavings on a special spinning wheel that allows for all sorts of textured art yarns.
Her yarns are created from sheep fleece, silk, merino wool, bamboo, angora and a selection of colourful synthetics. The art of needle felting is also added to some of her weavings. Most recently she has embraced adding carefully collected colourful textured beads to many of her pieces.
