Lynn Hughes Weaver
- Lynn Hughes lives in Durango, CO. She has been a Medical Massage Therapist for the past 40 years discovering weaving later in life.
In 2006 she moved from Williamstown, MA to Santa Fe, NM where she was introduced to weaving one weekend while visiting El Rancho de las Golondrinas (a living history museum) during a wine festival.
She became fascinated with the Churro wool, spinning, dying with natural dyes, and the weavings of all the blankets, shawls, wall hangings for the ranch. A docent told her she should become a volunteer and they would teach her everything she wanted to know.
Of course, she jumped on this and spent a lot of her free time in SF
“working” at the ranch. Lynn was a natural weaver, and her ideas and weavings soon took off.
She has 3 floor looms, 3 inkle looms and a table loom to keep her fully entertained, plus an older spinning wheel to spin yarn.
Lynn has been featured in Handwoven Magazine for her self -taught double weave chakra wall hanging she made for her son. Lynn is also a weaving instructor and now teaches weaving on an inkle loom to create bands of many uses.
