Yasmin has been working with fiber for over 30 years, including crochet, embroidery, rug hooking, basketry, bead weaving, tapestry weaving, hand loom weaving, and most recently, spinning. She discovered rigid heddle looms 10 years ago, and fell in love with these small, versatile looms. “They are the perfect balance of simplicity and functionality.”
