Profile: June McKenzie


June has been weaving for more than thirty years. She lives in Blenheim but spends as many weekends as possible in the Marlborough Sounds where she and Dougal have a beach house and June has a second loom. She enjoys the bird and plant life which she finds inspirational. June is not competitive, just weaves for the love of weaving – usually fine fabrics and household items.

Far from winding down her weaving activities, June has just acquired another loom. She is just waiting for a few components to complete setting up a Mecchia jack loom with 8 shafts and two warp beams, so she will be able to have fun with supplementary warps which she enjoys using. Go for it June!

And we newbies appreciate her sharing of her knowledge, and encouragement, so very generously.
