This episode of A Handwoven Experience is dedicated to weaving books. Since there are a lot to choose from, I thought I would give you my recommendations. Then, you can let me know what I’m missing from my shelf! Happy Weaving!

Show Notes –

The Key to Weaving – This book is by Mary E. Black. If you are in the market for a general textbook all about weaving? This is the one! (By the way, if you get a chance, read the blurb about Mary’s life. It is fascinating! I had no idea she had so many ties to Michigan. Ahh, the things you learn!)

The Handweaver’s Pattern Directory – Oooh, this is my favorite! This book by Anne Dixon always lives right next to my loom. The book is designed for 4-shaft looms and contains over 600 patterns displayed in gorgeous colored photos. And if you don’t have this one, go get it! You will love it.

A Handweaver’s Pattern Book – Marguerite Porter Davison’s book about overshot is a complete gem! Not only is it a beautiful book, but it is jam-packed full of wonderful patterns. You will never be bored if you own this book!

Madelyn van der Hoogt – Madelyn is an influential weaver, instructor, and author in the weaving world. You can find her at the Weaver’s School in the state of Washington. Because of her video on “Warping Your Loom”, I drastically re-thought my process!
