Huck Lace: The Best of Weaver's
Edited by: Madelyn van der Hoogt
The Best of Weaver's, Huck Lace brings together 25 articles on huck lace from Weaver's magazine-a collection that includes the top designers and teachers in the field. Articles include in-depth instruction in designing huck lace, beginning at step one on four shafts for beginners and culminating in networked huck for advanced weavers. Projects with complete instructions are illustrated with inspiring full-color photographs and range from scarves and shawls in wool and silk to tablecloths and placemats in cotton and linen to christening and wedding gowns in very fine threads. Editor Madelyn van der Hoogt refines popular features into a complete reference of value to all who weave.
Madelyn van der Hoogt first learned to weave on a backstrap loom in Guatemala. From that introduction grew a passion for textiles, weaving, and looms. Currently the editor of Handwoven, she was editor of Weaver's magazine from 1986 to 1999 and is the author of The Complete Book of Drafting and the editor of The Best of Weaver's series. She operates the Weavers' School in Coupeville, Washington, and teaches workshops in weave structures throughout the US and Canada. As an editor, she brings to each book a thorough understanding of the subject and a teacher's drive to make every word clearly understandable.
