Weaver Kathy Litchfield draws inspiration from nature and the magical world around us, to create unique, beautiful, colorful and functional handwoven pieces that enhance one’s home and lifestyle.
Wrap yourself in comfort and elegance with a brilliantly colorful shawl in shades of purple or blue, inspired by sunsets here in the Hollow. Indulge your sense of touch with luxuriously soft chenille wraps to keep the chill away on an autumn evening. Shades of red, orange, peach and gold hint at summer’s arrival – choose a shawl to wrap yourself in on the back porch while admiring the full moon!
Vibrant, warm colors and textured shawls with diverse fibers are Kathy’s specialty. She weaves in partnership with her 8-harness, cherry Norwood loom. Weaving brings her incredible joy, which she happily sends out in the form of handwoven pieces to be enjoyed and treasured by others.
Handwoven creations include scarves, shawls, wraps, ponchos, magical Story Shawls and home goods by special commission.
Thank you for your interest in my work! I hope to meet you in person at one of the shows this season.
