Lois Macknik began weaving in 1972, making belts on an inkle loom. For many years now, she has woven functional items using traditional patterns in contemporary colors. Placemats and table runners are her most popular items, but she produces a wide variety of items ranging from bookmarks and dollhouse rugs to chenille scarves. Pieced pillows are made from her handwoven scraps.

In 2001 she began needle felting, a dry felting technique. Starting with washed sheep fleece, you shape it and felt it by stabbing the wool with a special felting needle which is barbed and very sharp. Appendages, such as legs and ears. are made and attached by needling them on. Nothing is glued or sewn on. Lois enjoys making 3-dimensional cats, dogs, birds, character heads, and ornaments because of their unique character. No two ever look quite the same.

Lois frequently does hands-on demonstrations at historic sites and county fairs in New Jersey, and markets her work at craft shows and museum shops and through this web site. She does school tours and teaches basket workshops.

Recycled textiles into new home goods and accessories.

Trained in apparel design at New Yorks Fashion Institute of Technology, I have had a life long affinity for accessories. Since moving to High Bridge in 1991, that has expanded to include home goods as well. First under the CoCo Chenille label for textiles and now indoor and garden decor items at Inside/Out.
