"When you start being a weaver, you’re usually doing everything alone. When something goes wrong, you have to figure out how to fix it. When there’s something you think you should do, you have no one to ask whether it’s the right thing to do. So we all learn our little tips and tricks for handling all of those situations alone and then share them together. I’m trying to share the tips that I’ve learned from other weavers just like you’ll be learning them from me." — Madelyn van der Hoogt
