My background is in Education and University Student Services. I began my adventure in weaving and textile design shortly after I had my third child. I decided to take a weaving class at my local guild. I instantly fell in love with the art. I bought my first loom, a 60" Leclerc Colonial, and there it stayed untouched for almost 3 months. I was so intimidated by it's massive size!! Once I began my weaving class I gained confidence and got to work!! My goal was to make myself baby wraps to hold my little ones close and it turned into a full fledged business in under a year.
I love designing and creating original, unique, heirloom quality textiles. Since beginning I have expanded into dying my own yarn, handwoven scarves and cowls. I am also working with a fantastic Canadian maker WD Handbags who is now sewing one of a kind handbags and wallets with Quinnzie handwoven fabric. I will be adding kitchen and livingroom decor to the Quinnzie line up in the next 6 months.
Outside of weaving I spend my days at an office job at our local Univeristy, as much time as possible with my beautiful family and pups <3
