When Ivy DeHart and her husband moved to Loveland, CO in 1975, she was a new mother and bored. Her husband encouraged her to take an adult education class at Colorado State University and offered to babysit while she attended the evening class. She chose “Learning to Weave,” taught by Linda Ligon of Handwoven fame and that was how it all began.
She was a member of the Northern Colorado Weavers Guild for 10 years. After a move to Boise, ID, she joined the Handweavers Guild of Boise Valley and for 30 years found it to be a place of encouragement with excellent weavers. She helped lead a Delightful Dyers study group for the guild with Mary Berent and Resa Jones for three years from 2004-2007. She joined Complex Weavers after purchasing her 32-shaft Megado loom in 2002.
She is a member of the CW “Twenty Four, More of Less” study group. She entered her first Complexity show in 2014 and won the Complex Weavers Award for “Interlaced Ribbons.” She has been entering Complexity ever since because it challenges her to keep weaving and learning.
