Scandinavian rep weave, or ripsmatta in Swedish, is a simple weave structure where the warp almost always covers the weft. Traditionally used as a rug technique but in actuality a very versatile method, it is well-known in weaving circles as immeasurably fun because it is simple and very fast to weave. Classic styles are characterized by bold, geometric patterns that appeal to both the purist and the modernist, and are easily used as a source of inspiration--as in this book--for exciting variations and novel color combinations. Despite its charms, rep weave is notorious for being difficult to treadle and requiring the kind of advanced loom rarely available at home or during short weaving classes. Understandably, these issues have "scared away" amateur weavers in the past. Now, finally, author Laila Lundell--Executive Advisor for the National Handicrafts Council of Sweden and author of the international bestseller The Big Book of Weaving--provides an easy-to-use, highly illustrated manual that makes the rep weave technique accessible to all. With Rep Weaves: 27 Projects Using New and Classic Patterns, you no longer have to fear threading and harness tie-up, nor falling in love with a beautiful pattern you can't possibly weave on the basic loom you already have. Lundell explains a breakthrough method for threading and harness tie-up that is so easy, weavers of any experience level and ability will be capable of completing every project in the book--and others--on an ordinary counterbalance loom (no specialized equipment needed!) Lundell includes both classic patterns and her own variations, using checks, stripes, and bands to create stunning rugs, placemats, table runners, and curtain valances. Themes and colors span the spectrum, certain to tantalize the most discerning weaving enthusiast's palate. All drafts are followed by thorough explanations and step-by-step instructions, as well as photos and illustrations to ensure success for the unpracticed weaver, as well as help those with experience problem-solve. Patterns increase in complexity as you advance through the book, beginning with two and four harness weaves and moving on to six and eight harnesses--so you won't grow bored as you progress. With Lundell's book in hand, your rep weaving future knows no bounds.

A collection of traditional eighteenth and nineteenth century weaving drafts, written sequences of the threading order on the loom used to create specific patterns. They are presented here in their original form as gathered by Frances L. Goodrich and illustrated in over 160 color photos. This volume also contains over 200 valuable modern translations of the same drafts for use by today's weavers. In 1890, Frances L. Goodrich came to the southern mountains in North Carolina from a life of culture to live and work among people who had little opportunity for education or social enrichment. Through her work for the Presbyterian Home Mission Board, she grew to love and respect these neighbors who worked so hard and had so little. She established schools, a small hospital, and the Allanstand Cottage Industries. As she traveled the mountain roads and trails on horseback, Miss Goodrich collected these precious weaving drafts from the women who wove for Allanstand Cottage Industries. In your hands is the heart of that collection.

Author Sara Lamb focuses on the process of spinning for specific results, providing detailed instructions, a sampling of projects, variations, and a gallery of pieces by other spinners. Sara takes the reader to the very source of woven fabric--introducing the thought processes and concepts related to choosing fibers and how to spin them with finished fabric in mind.
