The three-layer false doubleweave got another washing, this time with a gentler program (I did not want it to shrink further, I just wanted to get rid of the pressed look). Of course I forgot to measure brfore, but it can't have shrunk much (I think). However, the pressed end still showed as flatter than the rest. I think the mangled end reverted to "almost untreated". false double weave
It all started with the DFW (Double Flyer Wheel). I wanted to know where it came from (or, at least, from whereabouts in the country this kind of accelerated driving was known). I had seen something in a (borrowed) book - had to buy it for myself. Was sort of disappointed - there was a wheelwright mentioned, that much was right, but, as it were, only in passing.

weavewright Springtime Thoughts Recently I re-read Sue Hubbell’s “A Country Year” — one of the best-loved books on my shelves. At the front of the book, right after the title page, she quotes Rainer Maria Rilke (Letters to a Young Poet, Letter No. 4); these words resonate through my days as I go about my chores and work at the loom. . . . . Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves . . . .

Robyn Spady's Blog My latest favorite thing has been referred to as many things . . . Needle weaving, teneriffe embroidery, pin weaving, and more. What I’m trying to do is encourage weavers and fiber artists to think small and scale down their weaving. This makes many forms of needle weaving portable.
As part of the final assignment I must produce an illustrated report of around 2,000 words on a subject of my choice. I have chosen The Stripe. Loom weavers spend a lot of time designing stripes or fighting / hiding stripes. There’s a lot more to weaving of course, but that fundamental step of warping the loom has you making decisions about all those parallel lines. Fibres of Being
Diversified Plain Weave sampler « Fibres of Being This is a class sampler I wove back in May – so if my recap of the theory is wrong, please let me know so I can correct it :) Liz (Calnan – my weaving teacher) explained that diversified plain weave is a development of plain weave. Thick and thin yarns are used in sets of three – thin, thick, thin – in both warp and weft.
EVA STOSSEL'S WEAVING BLOG In my childhood days in Romania, I was so fascinated by fibers and textiles that one day I cut a swatch out of my mother’s favorite heirloom tablecloth to add to my collection of fabric samples! As the years passed, my curiosity about how the things I collected were made led me to the study of handweaving, an ancient and beautiful art of infinite scope. I’ve been weaving with a sense of wonder for over 30 years. You are invited to view my Gallery to see some of my favorite past and present work. To learn more about weaving click on the Categories cloud or on Weaving Drafts & More where my posts are arranged by weaving topic with the number of shafts noted for each project.
