Spinoff Presents: Bandweaving Using Rigid Heddles and Inkle Looms eBook printed copy Weaving Book
Author: Editors of Spin-Off
30 pgs. (paper, color)
For Weavers and/or Spinners, seven of Long Thread Media's favorite bandweaving articles and projects come together in this eBook collection.
One of the most important things to know about the plain-weave and pick-up patterns in this collection is that they can be woven on a variety of looms. A pattern written for inkle looms can be easily converted to backstrap-style rigid heddles, rigid-heddle looms, and even floor looms. Threading drafts will indicate heddled and unheddled threads. On an inkle loom, a heddled thread is held in place with a loop of string, and an unheddled thread is free to move. On a rigid heddle, the heddled threads pass through the holes, while unheddled threads pass through the slots. Thats it! You can weave with the loom you have or branch out to something new. Most of all, have fun!
