Descrições do Produto
Descrição do Livro
New and experienced weavers alike are always on the lookout for new weave-structure patterns. The Weaver's Idea Book presents a wide variety of patterns for the simple rigid-heddle loom, accompanied by harness drafts for multishaft looms. The techniques include leno, Brooks bouquet, soumak, and embroidery on fabric. Each chapter contains weaving patterns along with swatches illustrating the techniques, accompanied by step-by-step photography.
The book is arranged by structure or type of weave, from variations on plain weave to doubleweave. With traditional patterns from around the world, bands, and fabrics woven on two double heddles, The Weaver's Idea Book brings together a variety of ways to create exquisite cloth. Weaving tips and tricks help weavers at all levels achieve their textile dreams. In addition to pattern drafts, Jane offers project ideas that guide the reader through creating functional woven projects, from wearables to home decor.
Weaving, especially on rigid-heddle looms, is enjoying a resurgence, and contemporary weavers are in need of a book to bridge the divide between basic books and complex text designed for advanced weavers with sophisticated tools. Celebrating the immense potential for creativity possible with the simplest of tools, The Weaver's Idea Book opens new avenues for exploration on both the rigid-heddle and multishaft looms.

My review focuses on the format differences. My first purchase (January 2014) was the Kindle format. It's a lot cheaper, and the idea of keeping my books in the cloud appeals to me in general. I particularly like the ability to click and zoom in on photos, but when I do, I can only see the photo... not the instructions. I have some favorites that I enjoy weaving with different yarns, colors, setts, etc., and though they are bookmarked, I find I have to do a lot of flipping through to find them. The power-saving Kindle feature often powers down the display when I am in the middle of following the instructions... frustrating.
Given the extensive use I get from this book, I decided to order the spiral bound format as well (January 2015). LOVE IT! I had no idea what I was missing with the Kindle format. The layout of multiple photos on a two-page spread allows me to compare variations and see full projects. The photos are large enough for me not to miss the zoom capability, and they are vividly colorful. I also understand more clearly when I can see the photo and description side-by-side, which was more challenging with the shorter single pages and smaller photo size format in the Kindle edition. I have added physical bookmarks to my favorites, so no more searching. The spiral-bound format stays open without a fuss for as long as I need it.
Whether you're just starting out or have lots of weaving experience, this book is a keeper you're likely to use often for guidance and inspiration. The spiral-bound format is well-worth the cost difference.
A huge plus is the spiral binding that allows you to easily open it, and leave it opened, to any page.
The book is VERY well organized, clearly written, and extremely helpful. I worked my way through the majority of the book in about a month - and within 6 weeks of getting my loom I was weaving with two heddles! The patterns are clearly explained, the photos are helpful, and the tips that are sprinkled through the book are very useful.
I bought the companion video online from Intraweave and learned a LOT more on warping a loom in various ways from that, as well as being able to see in a video form on my laptop how to do things like hemstitching and various patterns.
If you are thinking of learning to weave and would like a simple, easy to understand resource that can get you going on your own quickly, this is the book for you! I only wish there were more rigid heddle weaving resources like this book.
