Janet Christensen was drawn to spinning, acquired way too much wool and needed to learn weaving.  She tried the floor loom but thought it too mechanical. Janet then learned to weave tapestry on the Navajo loom at the Damascus Fiber Arts School with Audrey Moore.  She weaves tapestry mostly for her own pleasure.  When one project comes off the loom, another is ready to weave. Janet says she weaves so many tapestries she has to keep them rolled up in boxes under the bed.

 

This past spring Janet had a showing of her Navajo style weavings at the DFAS. She described the style and region of each rug. There were so many that the wall was filled and the rugs overflowed onto furniture.

This gallery shows a few of my tapestries and Navajo style rugs.
