Description

Rigid-heddle weaving is simple to learn, is easy to master, and offers a lifetime of possibilities to discover! Inventive Weaving on a Little Loom covers everything rigid-heddle weavers need to know about the craft, from the basics — how to select a loom, how to set it up, and how to get started — to a wide variety of fun techniques that yield beautiful results. Begin by exploring a variety of weave structures, including finger-manipulated laces, tapestry, and color play with stripes, plaids, and multicolor yarns. Then move on to more complex designs and irresistible projects, from pillows and curtains to bags, shawls, and even jewelry. Explore warp-face patterning, weft-pile weaving, weaving with fine threads, woven shibori, shadow weave, and the textural effects you can create with different yarns and with wire and conductive thread. Everything you need to know is here, with fully illustrated step-by-step instructions to ensure success.

        Mitchell is a modern Renaissance woman: she's an sf author, a technical writer who has worked for Google and Amazon, a podcaster, and an accomplished handweaver. Her debut weaving book provides a thorough education on the art and science of weaving, from choice of warp and weft yarn to various warping methods to styles beyond plain weave. There's ample coverage of the technical side of weaving, but Mitchell has both a sense of humor about her topic and a historical perspective on weaving that makes this book compelling. Weavers who worry that a rigid heddle loom is too limiting will be thrilled by the directions for converting four-shaft weave drafts for use on such a loom, which opens a world of possibilities. A variety of projects, from simple plain-weave blankets and scarves to explorations of woven lace, reinforce the instructions. VERDICT Notable for its full coverage of rigid heddle weaving, one of the most accessible pathways into this ancient art, this is an essential addition to weavers' bookshelves, right next to Mary E. Black's (long out-of-print) The Key to Weaving and Deborah Chandler's Learning To Weave.
