Gretchen Fancher

Gretchen Fancher introduced rigid heddle weaving into the programming at Lion Brand Yarn Studio where she taught knitting and weaving and ran the education programming for five years. She continues to teach at local yarn shops in the New York area and is excited to join the teaching roster at MAFA for the first time.

She loves teaching new weavers and inspiring experienced weavers to explore the possibilities of color play, texture and structure available to rigid heddle weavers without all the planning necessary on larger looms.
