Author: Heather Torgenrud

A pattern and color sourcebook for weavers, featuring 288 brand-new patterns for Baltic-style technique and 70 samples unleashing the power of color choices.

A lifelong resource for pick-up bandweavers, this pattern and color sourcebook contains 288 new charts that can be mixed and matched creatively, plus photos of 70 woven sample bands that illustrate techniques to help weavers arrange their own colors beautifully.

It empowers weavers to craft exquisite original bands woven in the Baltic-style pick-up technique found in many cultures.

Heather Torgenrud studied traditional weaving in Norway and Sweden, and teaches pick-up techniques and bandweaving, including at the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum. Her articles and patterns have appeared in publications such as Handwoven and the Norwegian Textile Letter. Heather originally taught herself to weave on a table loom. In 1972, the gift of an inkle loom sparked a fascination with pick-up.
