Judi’s tablet weaving career began in Florence, Italy. While stationed in Pisa, Italy she felt the need for creative stimulation and registered for a class in Off Loom Weaving with Kathy Knippel, faculty for New York City College and Drake University’s art program. She chose to do tablet weaving on a very large scale using rug yarn and many cards. On returning to Colorado, Judi taught off loom techniques for Parks and Recreation and the “Y”. Tablet weaving led to a Gallery show With Diane Fabeck and Karla Gipe at Meadowfound Gallery in Manitou Springs (now the annex to MAT). More currently she has taught Two Hole Tablet weaving to graduate students in Design and Merchandising at CSU.
