A Handweaver's Pattern Book
Author: Marguerite Porter Davison
Sought after for nearly a century, A Handweaver's Pattern Book is the venerable compendium of weaving patterns found in early 20th century America by Marguerite Davison. Weavers of all experience levels can learn everything from basic twills to over-shot and irregular patterns.
Often hailed "the handweaver's bible," this collection of patterns is complemented with fascinating textile history and helpful black-and-white photos. Numerous treadlings, illustrated with over 1,200 weavings, accompany each design that inspire innovation for expert weavers as well as provide helpful information for weavers who have yet reached that level. Davison also includes a yarn comparison chart in this comprehensive and highly visual guide.
Perfect for both commercial and home weavers, this extensive handbook of strikingly diverse patterns will keep any four-harness weaver busy for years to come!
