Helen Bressler, lead systems analyst for over 30 years, programmed integrated oil & gas field models. Self-taught, her “second” job was designing and sewing couture garments, each tailored specially. Eventually, she taught pattern drafting, finishing, beading and embellishment. It was not until she was transferred to Denver that she learned the joys of designing and weaving her own fabrics. Her work has received numerous awards in juried shows and exhibits and has been published in Handwoven magazine. Her goals are to continue to refine and improve her designs by learning more about weaving.
