Welcome to my Home Page!
Diane Crowder Designs is my Web name, while Crane Cove Creations is the name of my shop on Etsy, where you can purchase completed hand woven and hand made accessories, garments, home decor, and other fine products. (Click on the Crane Cove Creations link on the right menu.) I have been weaving since 1992, and working in fiber arts full-time since 2012. I have shown my work at art fairs in the Midwest, and two works appeared in a special exhibit at the 2014 biannual Convergence meeting of the Handweavers Guild of America, which awarded me its Certificate of Excellence in Weaving in 2012. I have taught workshops on various topics, and taken many workshops from renowned fiber artists. As a retired professor of French and Women’s Studies, I prize teaching and learning, and strive to improve my skills with every project. I pride myself on producing high quality weaving using the best materials available. Every item is hand made by me from beginning to end. Browse this page for examples of my work past and present. I can accept a limited number of commissions, so if you see something you like, contact me to discuss your project!
