Location: Rochester, New Hampshire not far from the Massachusetts and Maine borders.
LoftyFiber began in 2015, and is a large and well equipped weaving studio. Situated in a comfortable home, the studio has plenty of classroom space as well as yarn, supplies and equipment for sale.
Looking to take a road trip to New England? The studio is 20 minutes from Portsmouth NH, a very popular tourist destination near the coast. LoftyFiber is also right off the major highway that leads to the Lakes Region and beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire.
In addition to hosting classes and having local weavers and knitters stop by, LoftyFiber also has an online store at www.loftyfiber.com which offers personalized service and fast shipping.
And in case you thought LoftyFibers was just a studio, shop and classroom (which is amazing enough!), they’re also innovators! As the developers of TempoTreadle, a computing device that attaches to non-dobby floor and table looms, LoftyFibers is making weaving even more accessible and pleasurable. Dawne of LoftyFibers says, “we’re devoted to helping weavers achieve excellence in their weaving, while relaxing and enjoying the process. Our motto is “Inspired Craftsmanship”. We feel this refrain echoes through everything that we and our customers do. It’s so inspiring to see what people create with the products we sell!”
The Tempo Treadle attaches to many Louet Looms, including the David, Jane and Spring. Dawne says, “Speaking of craftsmanship, Louet quality is unsurpassed. Louet products are a natural fit for the fiber artist who is serious about their craft.”
When asked to reflect on the role of technology in weaving, Dawne says, “Many weavers are interested in entering and designing weaving drafts by computer. We enjoy helping them obtain the skills they need. Whether it’s basic computer skills or learning the intricacies of weaving design software, we tailor learning programs to the individual.”
“I do feel that weaving is becoming increasingly popular. Whether it’s the ease of designing by computer and the options to make it simpler to weave those designs using TempoTreadle or looms such as Louet’s Megado, it’s an exciting time to create unique fabrics that would have been too complex to imagine in the past. ”
