I have been weaving since I first got married 32 years ago. Andrew then was a commercial fisherman and I taught myself. I have been a business here in Maine for 20 years and enjoy it still.

Recently, Phyllis's weaving business was included in a new book Crafting a Business by Kathie Fitzgerald of Sterling Publishing.

I create items for the home to be used, not just to look at. I live with all my textiles and Andrew's iron all around us.

This studio space is attached to her new home on the Bristol Rd (Rt 130) in
Bristol, Maine.  She works on a 60" wide four harness direct tie up loom and an old 40" Union Loom made for heavy beating in creating rag rugs.  
 
Items of her work surround her as well as other artisans work.  She carries ASL pewter.  Notecards that are weaving and area related and jewlery by "Me Crazy" and "Summer Island studio".
