Wabi-Sabi Weaving

In weaving, the “weft” is the thread that is passed back and forth through the vertical strings (called the warp) to create fabric. Weft (the studio) shows people the ins and outs of weaving in a fun, friendly environment. You’ll be creating colorful, cozy creations in no time—to hang on your wall, wear, or give as gifts.

Tara Kiley-Rothwell

Tara Kiley-Rothwell (1962-2021) was an inspiration to many weavers, through her work as an weaving instructor and as a member of the Lancaster Spinners and Weavers Guild, the Central Pennsylvania Handweavers Guild, Mid Atlantic Fiber Association, and the annual Sheep-to-Shawl competition at the Pennsylvania Farm Show. Weft is located just a half-block from where Tara changed many lives at her Kite Tales SAORI Weaving Arts Studio. The looms in Weft come from Tara’s studio, and we are honored to continue her legacy.
