Lynn Novotnak learned to weave at Sievers School of Fiber Arts on Washington Island, Wisconsin, in 1999. She went home with a new loom, and acquired several more looms over the years. She has taken many Sievers and other classes and workshops, and belongs to a national weaving group. Applying dyes to warp and handwoven fabric, with its many opportunities and surprises, fascinates her. She has taught warp painting through Wisconsin Handweavers, Inc (WHI) and at Sievers. She was the 2019–2021 President of WHI and remained on the board as past president in 2021–2023. Lynn has won several first place awards at Loominosity, WHI’s annual show. Lynn is an avid knitter as well as weaver.
