Maine Sunday Telegram - 7/12/2009.
By Ray Routhier – Amanda Clark was about 12 years old when she saw a sign advertising weaving lessons, and convinced her mother to let her try. You wouldn't think a centuries-old craft would have that strong of an appeal for a 21st-century girl, but Clark had always been drawn to the idea of designing and making useful things. "I've always liked working with my hands and creating things, and I had seen a kid's loom in a catalog and thought it looked interesting," said Clark, now 18, of Standish. "But I wanted to try the real thing."
