Tom Poirier Handwovens  Truly handwoven textiles made in Portland, Oregon.

So waaay back in April my mother and I were featured on TV news (!) and I just realized that I forgot to post it on here! And in case you're wondering, I'm very pleased to report that as a result of this broadcast, I've now had the experience of being recognized by a stranger in public and out of context. ☺️ Watch the full video at http://www.kgw.com/money/business/movers-and-makers-a-common-thread/432599831

New scarves on the loom. Black silk with 28 strands of stainless steel down the center.

Hard day at the office. I'm at @katandmaouche today, rolling around on their gorgeous rugs, and even occasionally getting a little weaving done...

Scarf of linen, silk, and COPPER (!) moments after I pulled it off the loom. The copper is finer than hair, so it is soft to the touch and drapey, but holds its shape slightly. It's spectacular in direct sunlight!
Come see it at the First Thursday Street Fair tonight, 5p-10p. NW 13th between Irving and Johnson.

Fellow handweaver and cookie fairy Kathy Sengenberger stopped by @katandmaouche with some goodies for me!

Scarf of 70-micron copper with white spun silk and gray French linen. Pinhead for scale! The area in the photo is less than one inch across. Yikes! I'll be at @katandmaouche for a couple of days with a loom, working on this piece. Come say hi!

I'll be in this swanky show at @katandmaouche curated by @stockpiler
Fiber art is a wonderfully broad category, and I'm excited to see everyone's contributions!

Winding fine linen threads onto my loom. It's wonderfully satisfying to pat them when they're all wound on tight and even. Small pleasures. ☺️
I have two shows coming up, The Gathering of the Guilds at the Convention Center this Fri-Sun, and The Modern Craft of Fiber Art at @katandmaouche and curated by @stockpiler.
Come say hi!

Current thing on the loom. Very fine merino wool thread. I'm cutting these off tonight, and I'll have them at The Gathering of the Guilds this Fri-Sat. Six craft guilds in one giant room at the Convention center. Weavers, potters, beadmakers, woodworkers, metal arts and jewelry, and glassworkers.
