Steven Leckart at BoingBoing Gadgets interviewed his mom, a weaver, for mother’s day. I like the unabashed shop talk.

By the time I was in elementary school, most every holiday season my teachers each received a handmade scarf, compliments of my family. Instead of knitting on the couch, my mom handcrafts scarves, rugs, and towels in a private studio on a foot-treadle floor loom the size of Smart car.
