I've been following the ever elusive thread for 40years, inventing and reinventing myself and my creations. My husband, David, joins me in MARGE ROHRER DESIGNS as my chief weaver while I am the designer of both fabric and garment. Our studio is nestled amidst a forest of trees and a rippling creek high in the western North Carolina mountains. Nature's beauty constantly inspires us to produce exciting and ever-changing collections of luxurious hand-woven accessories by MARGE ROHRER DESIGNS. We would love for YOU to own one.
You can find our work in these shops: The Bascom Art Gallery (Highlands, NC), The Tin Roof Studio (Highlands, NC), and Arrowcraft Shop (Gatlinburg, TN).
Artist's statement: I love yarn in any shape , size or form. I've been a weaver and designer for 40 years. As I will be morphing into my eighth decade of life this fall I find myself not only continuing the designing and creating of our luxury collections of accessories but yearning to play with other fiber techniques and mixing them all together in new shapes and forms. Patterns and rigid techniques do not interest me, I want to indulge in a dialog between ideas, materials and techniques to tame the beautiful, elusive threads to bend to my heart's desire.
