Silver Lake Road Studio

Winter 2022-23 studio jpg

Shuttle Works Studio has moved for the last time, I hope.

In December 2021 I purchased a home located at 301 Silver Lake Road, Eagle River, Wi, and we moved in mid- January 2022.  It is home to Shuttle Works Studio and Celtic Wolf Studio, as well as our home.  Studio and living space once again under one roof.  No need to go out into weather to get to my looms, no running back and forth to let pets out, in other words, convenient.  Though in a  residential area where zoning laws apply, so I can’t be open regular hours, I can still be on the Northwoods Art Tour, and people can stop in by appointment.

In May/June 2019, I moved myself and studio to Eagle River, WI.  Photos of my new studio space will be posted as the looms are warped and weaving underway.  Updated photos of my new studio space will be posted very soon.

Shuttle Works Studio was located in my former log home, on Torch Lake, just south of Conover, WI, from May 1996 to May 2019.

I weave on Swedish Glimakra looms including a 48″ wide 10 shaft/12 treadle countermarche loom, a 44″ wide 10 shaft/10 treadle countermarche with single unit drawloom attachment and long extension, a 60″ wide 2 shaft Regina tapestry loom, an upright “Sara” tapestry loom, a band loom, and an 8 shaft Victoria table loom.

After purchasing weaving and related fiber arts books, as well as having subscriptions to weaving publications, I have an extensive reference library at my fingertips.  (Not all is shown in this photo!)
