Weaving Overshot: Redesigning the Tradition

by Donna Lee Sullivan
1996

"Beginning with the basics of overshot, the author leads the reader one simple step at a time from traditional "colonial" four-shaft patterns to designing and drafting overshot, combining overshot with threadings for other weave structures, working with more than four shafts, analyzing and reproducing antique fabrics, and reading antique drafts. Each technique is clearly and sensibly presented with drafts, woven samples, and easy-to-follow instructions so that the beginner weavers will be assured of success and experienced weavers will be inspired by the many possibilities of this versatile weave structure."

This book is a very good addition for a weaving library. It explains very well how to set up and weave overshot.
