So Warped, Warping a Loom for Weaving Tapestry



So Warped, Warping a Loom for Weaving Tapestry

Written by Kathe Todd-Hooker and Pat Spark

After many years of teaching tapestry and weaving, the authors realize that it is sometimes the warping process that stops a weaver dead in their tracks. Traditional weavers often have horror stories about their warping experiences and while many tapestry weavers do not have a background in traditional weaving, they too often see the process as impossibly difficult. In this book we are covering as many warping methods and hints as our combined 60 years of experience have taught us. We have learned these methods through much trial and error. We are certain there are other ways of doing things, but have hit upon the methods that work well for us and our students.

To help understand warping, we present different types of tapestry looms, various tensioning and shedding mechanisms including several types of heddles, in addition we include the following warping methods: figure eight, circular, bout, four-selvedge, floor loom, and as an added treat, the method of warping the Russian Old Believer backstrap loom for weaving tapestry belts.

If you weren’t warped before you read this book, So Warped will help you get there.

110 pages of text, black/white drawings and photos. Spiral bound so that it lies flat for quick reference when you’re warping your loom.
