Susan J. Foulkes is a designer/weaver in love with natural yarns and fascinated by the long history of weaving. She gained her HNC in Art and Design (Handloom Textile Design) in 2001. Exploring the many facets of weaving brought her into contact with the woven patterned bands from around the Baltic region. The intricate designs became the focus for her research and led to many extended trips around the region. Foulkes has self-published several books of band patterns and over 20 YouTube videos. In these and in workshops in the UK, the USA, and online she has introduced the use of the double slotted heddle. Her articles are published in craft magazines and journals. She lives in Durham, UK.
