Meet Robyn Spady

Robyn Spady

Robyn Spady has been weaving for over 40 years, and still weaves on the loom her great-grandmother used to weave her first baby blanket. She completed HGA's Certificate of Excellence (COE) in 2004 with the specialized study Loom-controlled Stitched Double Cloth. Robyn is fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads and loves coming up with new ideas to create fabric and transform it into something new and exciting. She is committed to turning the weaving world on to double-faced fabrics, four-shaft weaves, uncommon and advanced weave structures, and passementerie techniques. A frequent contributor to Handwoven Magazine, Robyn lives in Bremerton, WA


Totally Twill: Beyond the Basics

“Robyn is such a talented weaver and she delivers the workshop in a way that makes you feel you want to try out these weaves for yourself.” - Dunja Roberts

Perfect follow up to "Basic Twills"

“Another great course from Robyn Spady. This takes you to the next level, introducing advanced topics like network drafts, in an easy way that even a (very keen) beginner such as myself is able to follow comfortably. Robyn is very clear in her explanations, and this course too comes with a very useful downloadable pdf that allows you to go over the material again at your own pace (and of course you can keep re-watching the various units). Recommended!” - Paola Manzini

This was interesting.

“I'm looking forward to telescoping or digitizing some drafts as well as network drafts. Robyn did a great job of presenting this material. ” - Hollie Chapman
