Detailed Description

By Jane Patrick. This book, by rigid heddle weaving expert Jane Patrick, explores how the basic process of rigid heddle weaving can be expanded by the use of hand manipulated techniques, enhancements to your loom, and unexpected use of color and texture.

The contents include:

  • pushing plain weave farther with spaced warps and wefts, color-and-weave, and textured yarn
  • finger-controlled weaves like leno, Spanish lace, and hemstitching
  • pick-up
  • weft- and warp-faced fabrics
  • the use of a second heddle

The techniques are shown with full color photos of the weaving set-up, process, and the finished piece. In addition, project instructions are given so you can apply your new rigid heddle techniques to scarves, bags, placemats, pillows, clothing, and a table runner.

This is a spiral-bound book enclosed in a hard cover measuring 9 3/8" x 9 3/8". The spiral binding means that you can open it fully and lay it flat as you work.
