Nancy Clark weaves accessories like scarves, shawls, runners, throws, and elegant 'hugs' and 'cozies.' The accomplished textile artist feels that she responds to the voice of individual threads as she works them into a functional bit of art. She falls in love with each item, then sells it to someone who will love it as much as she.

One of the things that Nancy Clark of Missouri most enjoys about handweaving is the intimacy of the weaving process. “Each thread passes through my fingers several times in the completion of a finished piece, endearing it to me," she says.
