Simply Overshot and Simply Shadow Weave by Susan Kelser-Simpson

April 23, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Susan Kesler-Simpson was born in Jay County on a dairy farm. She has been weaving for over 20 years and is enthusiastic about her work. Textiles have always been a passion. She excels at making weave structures understandable for novice weavers. In this program, we will learn the basics of overshot and shadow weave, and see some of the projects that Susan has included in her books. Two of her books are currently available: Overshot Simply and Shadow Weave Simply. A third book, Creative Treadling with Overshot, will be published in the fall of 2021.

Crackle Weave Simply will be published in the future. In these books, she simplifies the weave structure, and emphasizes the basics. Numerous projects are included that the beginning weaver can successfully accomplish. She also emphasizes using affordable threads. More accomplished weavers can use the projects as a starting point to create more complex patterns of their own design.

​Susan received her BS and MA degrees at the University of Nebraska in Textiles and Design where she was introduced to weaving. Besides writing books she also teaches a variety of weaving classes.

Program is free to NY guild members. Join now!
