Barbara Holloway loves to weave. She began weaving after years of sewing with a desire to go one step further and create her own fabric for designing and sewing garments. She says that her design inspirations come from everywhere–sometimes even dreams–and is especially influenced by the natural colors of the surrounding Galisteo high desert basin. Her current favorite fiber is to work with is rayon chenille and cotton yarns because it is luxurious and suitable for all seasons.

Barbara – I love your work. The shawl that I got from you is one of my very favorite pieces. It dresses up whatever falls out of the closet every time!
