Kathy Cairns Hendershott
I'm a weaver, knitter, and Roycroft Master Artisan* near Warsaw, NY, a very rural area in Western New York State, offering handwoven and handknit items in our online shop and artisan shows. I started weaving in 2012 and made custom babywearing wraps for several years. I'm especially known especially for my use of careful color-blending and bold use of traditionally-based patterns with modern colors.

There are seven 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.
I'm also an Independent Designer for KnitPicks.
