Hi! My name is Chris and I LOVE weaving. Really, truly, passionately love weaving. When I took my first weaving class, I remember thinking, “I could do this all day long!”. And that became the vision - to create a business and life focused on this amazing, magical craft.
This is Acton Creative, the company I started many moons ago. It began as a way to promote my handwoven goods (handbags, homegoods, etc.), which I still do. I’m constantly weaving and much of the fabric is transformed into unique, one-of-a-kind items.
These days, my goal is to work with beginning weavers who can’t figure out what to do next. I show them how to turn their great ideas into gorgeous handwoven fabric, and give them the tools to become confident weavers.
I’ve given weaving demonstrations to thousands of people.
I’ve written over 250 blog posts on weaving over the course of a decade.
I’ve taught weaving everywhere - privately, in a group setting, and online.
I’ve sold thousands of dollars in handwoven handbags and homegoods.
And when I’m not weaving away, or creating the next “A Handwoven Experience” video, I can be found slurping hot tea and reading a romance. (A happy ending is a requirement.)
