About Me & Contact Info

Annie MacHale

Artists Statement
For over 45 years I have been weaving on inkle looms. This type of loom makes narrow pieces, no more than 6” in width. Within this narrow constraint, there are endless possibilities for combining colors into patterns.

When I create a woven piece, I want it to be both functional and beautiful. I have created many types of useful everyday items including: shoelaces, scarves, belts, bags, clothing trim, dog leashes, straps for cameras, guitars and other instruments, and many costume pieces.

Watch my interview on HGA's Textiles & Tea from November 2022 here:

In February of 2012, I was a guest on the show "Darlene Carman Presents" which aired on San Jose Public TV. Darlene and her husband allowed me to show off many of my woven items and talk about what inspires me and the type of things I like to create.

An article I wrote for CNCHnet, the online magazine for the Conference of Northern California Handweavers
