Fringe Benefits Weaving
Megan Rothstein is a production weaver and fiber artist based out of a studio in St. Johns in Portland, Oregon. Her production weaving business, Fringe Benefits Weaving, focuses on the use of naturally dyed wool and cotton to create shawls and scarves highlighting the twill weave structure.
She naturally dyes her weaving yarn and tries to forage as much of her dyes as possible from the Portland landscape. She weaves predominately on a four shaft floor loom for her business. For her fine art weaving, she focuses on re-using materials from her production weaving process and upcycling discarded fibers into hanging tapestries and homewares objects.
Additionally, she has been studying Ikebana for over thirteen years and has done demonstrations and taught classes throughout Oregon.
She has co-run the Weird Shift project with Adam Rothstein and Carl Diehl since 2014, a project which has twice been funded by the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art’s Precipice Fund.
