I was recently interviewed about my work and Inventive Weaving on episode 176 of the Craftsanity podcast.

If you want to know more about the story behind the book, give it a listen. It’s a great way to pass the time while threading a loom, which is what I was doing when I played it.

It was tremendous fun chatting with Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood on the phone, and it reminded me how much I loved talking to other artists when I was producing Weavecast.

So much so that I’ve revamped the Weavecast website, separating¬†it out from the now-archival WeaveZine site.

I also plan to produce new episodes, not at the monthly cadence I did before. But quarterly.

In other publication news, I recently heard from my editor at Storey that Inventive Weaving is going into a second printing! That means people are finding and enjoying the book. A big thank you to everyone who’s reading the book and recommending it to friends.

After spending years weaving and writing for a book, it’s great to have that book find its audience.

Happy Weaving!

  1. So glad to hear you are planning on producing new episodes of WeaveCast! I still miss it and listen to them when I’m weaving.

    Fun side note, the audio essay I did for you was counted as a publication for my promotion to Associate Professor.

    Thanks for sharing your talent and giving us something to look forward to.

  2. I stumbled upon your podcast a couple of years ago. I love to listen as I work on my computer. I have learned so much. I want to say thank you for all you time and effort in making this podcast. Excited to hear the new shows!!!!

  3. I’ve just been recommending Weavecast to a friend who is a new weaver. I listened to your podcasts from the earliest days and found them informative and inspirational. It would be great to have the occasional new episode, when you have time.

  4. Oddly, if I click on your Weavecast website link it goes to some parked domain So I think you have a typo…

  5. I’m excited to know you plan to revive your podcasts, Syne. I always enjoyed (and learned from) them so much while I was warping. And, by the way, your book “Inventive Weaving” is an incredible reference. I can’t imagine the amount of work that went into it. The photography and illustrations are top-notch, too. Great job.

  6. I’m thrilled to hear that you’re planning on reviving Weavecast! I’m currently listening to all of the podcasts, as I wasn’t a weaver when they were first released, and I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying them. Your new book is simply fantastic, from every perspective possible. Although I’ve branched out and have two floor looms, my rigid heddle is still in regular use and I anticipate that this won’t change. It truly is a versatile tool.
