Weavolution Official Press Release

Press Release
June 8, 2009
Contact: Claudia Segal (240) 994-3099
The new online gathering place for hand weavers, an online social network designed to meet the unique needs of
handweavers, launched its beta test on June 8, 2009. Designed to bring handweavers
together from around the world, is a one-stop resource for every type
of handweaver.
From hobby to production, from peg to dobby, Weavolution provides a place for weavers
to meet, discuss and participate in moderated user groups and forums.
Members may post projects, looms, yarns, books, and accessories to share with others
and solicit feedback from other members.
But you donʼt have to be a member or even a weaver to explore the site and learn about
weaving free of charge.
Weavolution aims to become an inclusive, global community that encourages weavers
by enabling them to discover and follow trends in weaving; find local, national and
international resources; and find businesses catering to their needs. Weavolution
members can search the siteʼs databases to view items, group postings and research
information catalogued by others.
Weavolutionʼs goal is to provide a website for handweavers that is useful, fun and
helpful, and to be a resource for shops, products and ideas from around the corner and
around the world.
The project began in 2008 when three weavers from across the United States, Claudia
Segal, Tien Chiu, and Alison Giachetti, met online and formed Weavolution. Working
together with a host of dedicated volunteers, the team forged into a
website with the potential to become a community.
Come, take a look. is available for anyone to explore. You donʼt have
to sign up to see our site. But if you do, we hope youʼll decide to
