Woolworth Walk

Brenda McVey

I have been interested in and working with the fiber
arts for most of my life. One of my earliest memories
is of a big box in the family attic filled with quilting
scraps. My mother taught me to sew in high school
and I can still remember some of the fabrics that I
worked with then. I love color and texture and the
structure of the fabric, and enjoy the mechanical
process of creating fabric. As a long time handweaver,
I continue to be fascinated by the weaving process
and am constantly refining my techniques and products.
In the last few years I have been experimenting with
knitting machines. Using both the weaving loom and the
knitting machine I can take beautiful yarns and create
unique and personal fabrics. Varying the yarn texture,
color and fabric structure creates interesting fabric
surfaces. By balancing function and aesthetics, I
hope to create handcrafted pieces which are artful
in design and elegant in function.
