Valentines: the warp and weft of love

Love

"From a thread of Sky
 To the warp and weft of your being
 You're beautiful, graceful,
 Like no other....."

Imogen Heap

“Weaving is the embodiment of time itself…”

From New Yarns – www.tate.org.uk

Giving a textile as a gift is the perfect embodiment of love, patience & dedication. Hand weaving is a process that takes time: deliberated, considered and thoughtfully paced.

It is easy to see the parallels between a textile’s warp and weft and our human relationships. A weaver who takes care over the process: taking time and patience over each step is will be rewarded with a worthy textile. It is true to weaving as it is in love that even with care there may be knots, tangles and mistakes that will need smoothing out. It takes dedication and skill: patience is needed to not rush through. The reward is a fabric that will last, a beautiful creation made sustainably, with slow pace and care.
