The result is more than 25 different types of threadings explored and nearly 900 fabric samples with their drafts. Well-kwn weaves such as twill and twill-based, tied unit, and lace weaves are included, as well as less common ones such as diversified plain weave and pique. If you're new to multishaft weaving, you'll find a whole new world of possibilities; if you're a seasoned weaver, you'll see new what ifs to explore on every page. You can skip through the book, picking and choosing drafts to try, or dig into a single weave and explore it in depth.
Weaver and editor Carol Strickler has spent a good share of her weaving life peering at fabrics. A recognised authority on coverlet weaves, she authored 'American Woven Coverlets' (Interweave Press, 1998), and has analysed coverlets, written articles on the subject, and consulted with weavers and collectos accross the country.
