Yesterday I had the pleasure of addressing a group of weavers, talking about lace weaves. As part of that I talked anout my 'messy' train of thought as I build a cloth, and that I am primarily a form follows function weaver.
After the presentation one weaver came up to say that she worked for a group of engineers and that they were always saying "form/function, form/function".
She said she now understood how that applied to weaving.
Be still my heart. ;)
