Our Master Weaver Series highlight the inspiring talents of Master Weavers. We have worked with these amazing hand-crafters to bring you stunning kits made from high quality yarns.
Cynthia Newman designed these magical, foldable Napkins. Cynthia enjoys the contrast between her rural lifestyle and designs influenced by her urban childhood. Her inspiration comes from modern, industrial design and architecture. Attracted to repetitive patterns found in large cargo ships, bridges, machines and grain silos, she translates the patterns into her weavings. Cynthia received Master Weaver certification from Handweavers Guild of America in 2018; recently completed work as a Look Development Textile Designer for a feature film; was awarded Best Technical Excellence for Color Blocks I, II & III in Weaving Guilds of Oregon traveling exhibition in 2018. Her studio is in northeast Oregon.
