Kathy Cairns Hendershott
is a weaver, knitter, and Roycroft Artisan* near Warsaw, NY, a very rural area in Western New York State. She offers handwoven and handknit items in our online shop and artisan shows. She started weaving in 2012 and made custom babywearing wraps for several years. She is known especially for her use of careful color-blending and bold use of patterns.
There are eight traditional floor looms in our house that are never empty, with no computer or dobby-assisted mechanisms. It can take up to 25 hours to set up a loom for a project. See photos of the entire custom fabric process by checking out The Process page.
She's also an Independent Designer for KnitPicks.
