Eva Stossel

My love for weaving began when I was a studio art major in 1976 in Gayle Wimmer’s fiber arts class at Hunter College. After receiving my BA, I went on to study fabric and fiber design by taking classes and studying on my own. My weaving work over the years includes exhibiting and selling through shops and galleries, collaborating with fashion designer, Kip Kirkendall, production weaving for scarf designer, Fern Devlin, and freelancing as a sample weaver in the textile industry. A few years ago I learned to use weaving software and currently I’m enjoying sharing my weaving adventures on my blog.
