My name is
Camilla Stege (rhymes with Peggy). I
grew up in northern New Jersey,
graduated from Barnard College
(B.A.) in New York City and Rutgers
University (M.L.S.). I have lived in
Maine since 1972.
My interest in weaving began while I
was a cataloging librarian at the
University of Vermont in 1968: some
weaving publications passed across
my desk and I have been ensnared by
threads ever since.
I studied all the weaving books and
periodicals I could find, then took
an intensive one-on-one workshop
with Janet Nyquist, a nationally
known weaver from the Albany area.
Her versatility, problem solving
skills, and her passion for creating
beautiful functional textiles have
been a continuing inspiration.
I believe in making useful,
attractive and durable textiles,
well designed and meticulously
executed. I know the things I make
will be in use and part of someone's
life for many years. Each creation
is an original design, taken from
concept through hand weaving and
finishing by the artist.
