Weaving past into present
Matthew Hundley / (email@example.com)
Over the next several months, 25 Avery Middle School students and Avery home school students will visit Crossnore Weavers in order to learn to operate the looms and produce a small woven project.
Stephanie Hoilman, a former Crossnore School Inc. student, now works as part of Crossnore Weavers, helping to produce its array of woven product and, thanks to the new program, educate Avery’s young people in weaving.
“I would love to see more young people here,” Hoilman said. “I would love to see it passed on.”
Hoilman first started working with Crossnore Weavers as a campus job while she was a student at Crossnore School Inc., and found her passion in crafting many of the products that are sold in the Crossnore Weavers’ shop.
