Welcome to Janelle Studio, featuring Weaving and a number of Arts and Crafts that we love here. My main interest lies with weaving, but I thoroughly enjoy and practice other fiber and textile arts and crafts such as spinning, sewing, knitting, embroidery, cross stitch, fabric design, and more.
I have woven for more than 23 years, taking advanced weaving courses and completing hundreds of other projects. Not content to just follow the standard "recipes", I love innovation and experimentation. All these fiber arts can be mutually beneficial, as tools and techniques and ideas may be adapted from one to another.
Living in Canada in a fairly remote location, from a weaving viewpoint, it was a very real challenge to get instruction beyond the basics. To help others learn this wonderful craft, I have run many local courses for beginning and advanced weaving techniques.
As the site develops, I hope you will find something here to help or inspire your own work no matter where you live.

Other Useful Subjects
Some pages will relate to topics from my husband's interests in metalworking, woodworking, fine art, and photography. Read a practical file with tips on getting started in Digital Photography. You learn how to take pictures of articles indoors, and can use the same techniques for photographing your fiber art projects, or getting better vacation photos inside or out. The metalworking home page includes many topics with tips useful around the house or with other crafts.
