Simple, inexpensive weaving techniques for adults and kids,
By A Customer
This review is from: Weaving Without a Loom (Paperback)For those wanna-be weavers with limited funds, and uncertain skills, this book is definitely for you. "Weaving Without a Loom" clearly explains through written directions and close-up colored photographs, various techniques that really, truly do not require any special equipment other than yarn, scissors, dowels, and other easily acquired craft items. The author, Veronica Burningham, is a member of the Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers. In addition to general tips about choosing
colors,yarns,and designs, she has specific chapters that cover types of weaves;weaving on sticks; weaving on card; weaving on rings (such as embroidery hoops); weaving on hardboard (corrugated cardboard); and weaving on picture frames. On the downside, only about ten specific projects, suitable for adults or grade school children, are included in the book. However, if you can supply at least some of your own imagination and choices, this is an excellent way to kick-start a new hobby. In addition to personal use, the publishers allow items made from the instructions to be sold for charity without charge or special permission (great for church, scouting, or school fund-raising bazaars).
