Suzanne Rowan - Handweaving

 

Suzanne's weaving career began in 1974 when she and her husband and six children moved from New York to live in their vacation home in Center Sandwich, NH. She soon realized that she needed a part time job that would leave her available to be a full time mother. Luck smiled on her when she discovered that Ayotte's Designery, the handweaving shop in town, was in need of help. Ayotte's told Suzanne that they could teach her how to weave to help them with their production work.

Suzanne worked with them for 25 years until the company closed due to retirement. During that time she had purchased her own loom and taught herself set-up and design, an important element she had not learned on the job. And thus, Suzanne Rowan Handweaving was born.

When Suzanne first brought her beautiful handwoven placemats and runners to the Gallery, she told us that her pieces wear so well that "You'll get sick of having them around before they wear out"! Well, that's only partially true. These are beautiful! A stickler for details, Suzanne's warp and weft are even and perfect. They are designed for day to day use, not to be treated as precious, hardly-used objects. Her placemats and runners are all machine washed and dried when they come off the loom, so they have been preshrunk. All of Suzanne's work are one-of-a-kind creations. And she takes custom orders through the Gallery. Please talk to us about your special color combination and pieces.
