Loom N Essence is a full service fiber arts studio whose creative vision began in the beautiful Red Rock country of Sedona, AZ . Loom N Essence offers a cross section of spinning and weaving equipment to compliment the creative needs of the fiber artist in order to ensure your success.
Sharon Poplawski, owner and founder of Loom N Essence, respectfully traces her love for the "old craft" to both grandfather's . Having been raised in a small New England mill town, I learned early to recognize their loyalty and appreciation for the trade. Although having spent many years away from those small mill towns, I am proud of my New England Heritage. Their influence is the essence of my loyalty, dedication and creativity.
LIFES JOURNEY -
"IOWA" Native American Translation
Land Between Two Rivers
January 2008 Loom N Essence travels east to Cedar Rapids, Iowa embarking on a journey aimed to mesh both personal and creative goals.
Cedar Rapids takes it's life from the river, visually, economically, and traditionally. It is the river's life that flows thru the veins of the people of Cedar Rapids. Much like their pioneer ancestors, they are resilient, determined and to be respected.
