This piece is part of our Churro Club Exhibition II!

Materials in detail… 

Wool warp and Churro wool weft.

Techniques used…

Woven on a 30″ Hammett loom.

Notes on this piece…

“My Life Lines design came out of my time taking care of my parents the last few years of their lives. I spent a fair amount of time with them in the hospital watching the heartbeat monitor. Even though that was difficult it was also good because I was able to share time with them at an important part of their lives.

The Churro Club colors are great inspiration for new color combinations.” – Regina Vorgang
