more about Christa:
Christa Rayhill Lemons always had an interest in weaving in particular and even owned the Rachel Brown book on weaving that she had accidentally stumbled upon in the local library way back when. When she found out there was a whole world of Textiles she was delighted. She graduated from Indiana University Hope School of Fine Arts in December 2000 at the age of 40. In 2009 Christa found the Weaving A Life web site and met Susan Barret-Merrill. She aims to teach others about themselves and what they find important through the use of the Key forms of Weaving A Life. Christa has floor looms, table looms, Inkle looms, tapestry loom and even a Carol Leigh Triangle loom. As a teacher, Christa looks forward to helping people better understand what is most important to them so that they might live a more healthy and productive life.
