For 25 years, Deborah worked in the software business full-time while dabbling in the fiber arts in (too few) leisure moments. Now the tables are turned: weaving (and teaching weaving) are my primary occupations and my computer is now a favorite weaving tool. I love the weaving programs available to us today. In fact, I have four of them and use them all at one time or another. I also use the basic spreadsheet, database and word processing programs that are installed on most home PC ’s today to support my fiber pursuits.
Michael spent 30 years as a university administrator. In his off hours, he could be found collecting antique spinning wheels or weaving rugs with his handspun yarns. These days, you can find him in his wood shop turning out spinning and weaving tools and other pleasantries that can be produced on a lathe.
