“Woven with love and spirit,” describes the scarfs and throws created by Indiana fiber artist Sandy Trimble. When these one of a kind, handwoven articles touch your neck and hands they feel like breath and life. Sandy selects yarns and colors, dresses her loom and weaves on a pattern that she created to express any number of thoughts and feelings. Cool thing is, you get to wear these beautiful, sublime creations for years and years. Or give them! What a warm and cozy gift.
A member of the Fiber Arts Guild of Pittsburgh, Sandy has been working as a fiber artist for almost 20 years. She began her work as a weaver, doing several liturgical works locally and regionally. She moved on to felt making and Shibori dye work about 8 years ago. She loves the immediacy of the two mediums, and their expressive qualities. The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, and 3G Gallery in Pittsburgh presently represent her Pashmina scarves and stoles. A former art educator,she works full-time as a weaver and felter. Her works have been exhibited at many events and has received numerous awards for her creative designs and soft sculptures.
