About the Common Thread

The Weaving Workshop is an online community, where we come together to share inspiration and motivation around the creative process.

With readers and friends on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest, The Weaving Workshop reaches an audience of creative people who are actively seeking ways to heal, grow, and enhance their lives through their art.

Anyone of any age, from any location can submit an original post (not previously posted anywhere else), with a bio, for inclusion on this blog – The Common Thread. Visitors to the site read inspiring posts with beautiful imagery about topics spanning art, textile design, colors, and trends. Motivating posts aim to inspire our community of weavers to create their art and try new materials and structures at the loom too.

This is not an elite space, reserved for experts, thought leaders, or professional artists.This blog is for creative people who are willing to share their work openly and honestly.


This chalkboard was in the hand weaving studio at Philadelphia University when I was a student, technical associate, and visiting professor. To me it represents the very foundation of The Weaving Workshop. The Common Thread was the name of a cafe and gathering place at Philadelphia University.

My desire to share and teach art and design is still vital to my creative life. This is my solution – create an online platform where I encourage others to express their artistic voices within a group of like-minded creative spirits.

These musings on making bind us and our creativity together.

This is our common thread.
