Laura Fry

Laura Fry chose weaving as a career in 1975 and studied at some of Canada's top weaving schools. She started her business in 1977 and since 1980 has worked full-time as a professional handweaver. In 1997 she received certification as one of Canada's Master Weavers. Laura's meticulous approach to weaving quality fabric and extensive knowledge of ergonomic weaving are popular with her students, whom she teaches in person and online around the world. Laura is the author of Magic in the Water, a self-published book about the importance of wet-finishing woven fabric. Laura is well known for her concise pearls of weaving wisdom including, "If you can't be perfect, be consistent," and, "A thread under tension is a thread under control." As of early 2018, she is in the midst of writing a new book on weaving design.
