Jackie Thomson is a Portland creative with a love of textiles. She weaves rugs and other textiles in her studio, Loom Room, a name Jackie’s husband created when they moved in. The Loom Room is in Jackie’s attic, where she spends most of her early morning designing and hand-weaving her rugs before the Summer sun becomes too hot.
Jackie started weaving in 2003 while in college studying for a BFA in Graphic Design. She got her start in the creative industry working as an illustrator. These days, she uses her illustration background to develop her weaving designs. All rug designs are original to LOOM ROOM textiles. The vibrant community in the Pacific Northwest continues to inspire and encourage her work.
