Announcing new SAORI studios in California!

I want to let you know about two new Saori Studios that have just opened recently in California.

Saori Santa Cruz – Jill Sanders

Saori Berkeley – Lynn Harris

Saori Berkeley

Jill and Lynn have both been to Salt Spring to explore Saori weaving and I am very pleased that they have both taken the steps to open their own studios. It means more opportunities for more people to learn about Saori weaving! Yay!

Another announcement – Lynn Harris (Saori Berkeley) and Marie Suzaki (from the Saori head office in Japan, now living in Victoria – watch for more details on what Marie is doing soon….) are going to participate with me in a presentation to the Salt Spring Weaver’s Guild as part of a series called “Designing Women” on October 28. In the morning we will be presenting ideas on SAORI clothing design – this session is free. In the afternoon there will be a workshop for participants to make ‘Su-chan’s Hat’ – a hat made with no cutting and no sewing – it will be completed during the afternoon workshop! (Last I heard the workshop is already full!)

Many exciting things!

Also, Saori Global has a new page listing all of the Canadian and US Saori studios for easy reference. You can find it here for those of you in other areas of North America. If you need more information about Saori in other areas of the world, please contact me.

Happy Weaving,

    It is so inspirational to look at others’ Saori weavings. Think I’ll skip my jobs today and sit down at my new loom.
    Can anyone go to the Designing Women series or do you have to be a member? When does it start? I’d love to get more clothing ideas!
