Praise

“This amazing book shows you how to get the very best from your weaving loom. Weave widths double and more than the size of your loom with no seams. Discover how to weave a tube, and a tube within a tube. This is a magical book. The designs are beautiful and the presentation top notch. 13 great designs and projects you could easily adapt plus full instructions and suggestions for expansion. Popular in the eighteenth century, this book explores the full potential of this method and encourages you to experiment.” – KarenPlatt.co.uk

“First impressions of this softback are that it is very colourful and attractive. The introduction promises a solid foundation from which to conduct an exploration of a versatile weave structure with unlimited possibilities, which is precisely what the reader gets. After a brief history, we are plunged straight into ‘How doubleweave works’ with very clear diagrams, good illustrations and thorough descriptive text. This is followed by an outline of warp preparation and dressing the loom specifically for doubleweave. This book is not aimed at complete beginners, a basic knowledge of weaving terms and four-shaft weaving on a table loom is assumed, also the ability to interpret threading and tie-up diagrams. After this, the first sampler on four shafts is covered in detail, including the usual combinations of layers, tubes and double-width cloth. This is followed by rather more unusual suggestions such as ‘quilting’ in decorative patterns using a pick-up stick and weaving finger-manipulated laces against a plain background, finishing with an extensive chapter on doubleweave pickup. By this time I was itching to weave the sampler myself – but no time – so continue reading! Further chapters on possibilities for four shafts continue, followed by exploring doubleweave with eight or more shafts. These include a few projects which act as very useful sampling opportunities, even though the finished items are not that exciting. The general description of weaving double, triple or quadruple cloth on eight or more shafts is complicated, but rewards careful reading. Again, the diagrams and illustrations are excellent. The book concludes with a short chapter suggesting ideas for further reading and exploration. I’m now hooked; can’t wait to get started.” – Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers
