An Interview with Cecilia Lockwood of Frittelli and Lockwood
web site: www.frittelli-lockwood.com
What are you bringing to the Albany Holiday Studio Sale?
Cecilia Lockwood: I'm bringing a fabulous collection of handwoven scarves in silky bamboo, luscious chenille, and warm and fuzzy alpaca. Also, for the men in your life, I'll have a collection of neckties in serious and playful patterns. Caps, hats, and handbags pieced from my handwoven fabrics round out the line.
What is your process and/or inspiration?
Cecilia Lockwood: I love textiles, fiber, and texture. Starting with yarn on cones, I design the warp, dress the loom, and weave yardage using multiple shuttles and intricate color and weave effect.
What else would you like us to know about yourself?
Cecilia Lockwood: Over the summer, my husband and I relocated our weaving studio and opened a gallery in the Arts District in Saratoga Springs. You can visit our shop and watch our looms in action Tuesday - Saturday 10-5 and till 7 on Fridays. We have a clothing line for men and women and can tailor our jackets, shirts, and vests for a custom fit.
