My Book Is Now Ready for Purchase!




It's a book about weaving design especially for inkle weavers and band weavers. Learn what you need to know about color and design for weaving narrow warp-faced bands.  This book is a feast for the eyes, containing many inspiring, full-page, color photos.

In the book I distill color theory into some basic guidelines specifically for band weavers and demonstrate how to get extraordinary while using a simple plain weave. The art is in the warping and the possibilities are endless!

This book is available in a spiral bound 8 1/2 x 11" paperback or an ebook.

It includes:

* Color terminology and color theory basics
* Pattern design basics and advanced tips
* 115 pages
* 105 color illustrations
* 200 interactive pattern charts -Open them using the online program "Inkle Loom Pattern Editor"

The book is divided into three sections:
Section One is a discussion of color theory and band design including my best tips from years of experiments. Get ideas and resources for choosing color combinations.
Section Two illustrates how to create plain weave patterns by breaking it down to the various elements which make up a design. Learn how to to use chains, teeth, stripes, etc. and how to balance them to get pleasing results.
Section Three is a catalog of 200 individual interactive patterns plus tips for turning these into thousands upon thousands more.
