Instructor Bio:

Anita Luvera Mayer was introduced to looms and weaving by her mother-in-law, a well-known Seattle weaving instructor.  Clothing designed and worn by Anita always relates to ethnic garments with the finishes and embellishments done by hand.  Her work has been included in national and international shows and one-woman retrospectives. 

Her garment “Rags to Riches” was selected from  6000 entries for inclusion in the Fiber Arts Design Book #7. In addition, Anita’s series “Mantles for Women: Rites of Passage”, a collection of six garments, was  the focus of an exhibition “Life Passages: Women, Dress and Culture” at the Beach Museum at Kansas State University.  This series has been donated to the university by Ms. Mayer and the collection will be integrated into the courses in the Women’s Studies Program.
