Penny, like her mythological namesake (that's Ulysses' wife in case you were wondering) is a weaver of considerable ability. Penny has an aptitude for crafts and when she and Nick went to live in BorĂ¥s, the textile capital of Sweden in 1989 she decided to throw herself into a new craft - weaving.

Such is her love of weaving that she has persuaded Nick to sacrifice the whole upper floor of the coach house to act as her weaving studio. The loom has come from Sweden as have most of the materials to be woven. Penny has a considerable library of weaving books, most of them in Swedish and relating to classic and traditional styles of weaving. Penny is also a member of the Merseyside Weavers Guild.
