Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"With innovative ideas and careful attention to detail, this book delivers exactly what the cover promises, inspired designs not only for the rigid heddle loom but with drafts included, shaft weavers as well. Sidebars provide all manner of useful information so be sure to watch for them. From dressing the loom to fulling, beginners will find everything they need to get started weaving with confidence and as their skills develop, provide challenging new ideas to try. Without a doubt, this is one of the better beginner weaving books available." --Monsters and Critics

"Both brand new and experienced weavers will not be able to wait to try them all out!" --Kick Ass Book Reviews

"Get started...you will have gifts for everyone." --Hartford Knitting Examiner

"The projects are much more sophisticated than any I've seen for this type of loom and the use of color and texture is fabulous. This book can teach a beginner how to make a scarf, but more importantly, the wonderful fabric creations inspire one to go beyond scarf-making. The authors also teach techniques such as felting, fringe twisting, pom-pom making, fulling, dying--even a step-by-step instruction how to deconstruct a sweater to re-purpose the yarn." --Knit and Travel

Library Journal
05/15/2014
Patrick (Time To Weave) and Sokolov (columnist, "Yearning To Weave and Spin"), coworkers at Schacht Spindle Company, may be expert weavers, but they see great potential in rigid heddle looms, which are easier to warp than most floor looms. In their first collaborative book, the authors present a collection of scarves—perfect projects for the rigid heddle loom, which limits the project width. The scarves are evenly divided between everyday wearable pieces, such as traditional plaids or finely woven lace, and quirky creations involving novelty yarns, including a collar that bears an unfortunate resemblance to a mop head. Almost all of the scarves are made using readily available knitting yarn, and a clear, full-sized photograph of the project yarn wrapped around a one-inch piece of cardboard helps weavers make appropriate substitutions. Some of the most interesting information is related to finishing, including felting, fulling, resist felting, and discharge dyeing, which adds visual interest to the finished product. VERDICT Inexpensive rigid heddle looms are marketed to knitters and crocheters, and these beginner friendly projects will inspire weavers—and help them use up some of their yarn.
