Phyllis Leck has two passions—weaving and history. She is inspired by the textiles that were woven in early New England homes. She creates simple but well-constructed woven textiles that fit modern living and decorating.
Leck works full-time in her weaving studio in Maine creating custom rugs, blankets, bedspreads, and table linens. Her favorite patterns are ticking, checks, and stripes. She has started to include natural-dyed yarns from native plants in her work. Her textiles can be washed and dried and last a long time, improving with each washing.
Leck sells her work at her studio as well as online and at select shows. She enjoys opening her studio, which she shares with her husband’s business, Scottish Lion Wrought Iron, to visitors in the summertime.
