Laurie Duxbury weaves in her studio in Northern Albemarle County. Fascinated by colors and their interaction, she blends multi-hued yarns at her loom to create clothing and home accessories. She first became interested in weaving and textile production when, as a child, she visited historic sites in her native Virginia. As she learned the craft of weaving, her interest evolved into a passion for expressing her own creativity through the combination of colorful threads and traditional patterns. Though she works in traditional techniques her pieces reflect the elegance of contemporary design. Laurie has studied in Sweden and throughout the United States. In addition to weaving for shows and commissions, she teaches workshops and offers one-on-one instruction.

    Hi! I don’t know if I have the right person or if you remember me but I’m married to Jim Annable , a Captain at American Airlines. I think years ago you all came and visited us in our old farmhouse in Winchester, Virginia. Jim still runs into your husband once in awhile. I learned to knit about 8 years ago. Then 2 years ago we bought 3 alpacas. Jim learned to spin the alpaca fiber. I would rather spend my time knitting. I was searching for a place to have some fiber spun when I came across your website. The towels are gorgeous! You are so talented. God bless you!

      Hi Terry, of course I remember you and Jim and your gracious hospitality. I keep track of your travels with Jim through Bill. I know some spinners and am happy to put you in touch with them if you’re interested.
